Saw this rendering a guy did over at V8Buick. Thought it was really good. Messes with the mind at first. I would buy one!

So let it be written, so let it be done!

 

With a '67 (horse shoe) shift console. I would donate mine for the cause.

Mr. Foose where are you?

 

Love it.

 

Thanks JZ

Im working on a project that will combine a 67, 71, and 65, plus some of the original concept AND silver arrow features. Hopefully the funding will be sufficient to get er done. And yes, a horseshoe shifter.

 

Guess what the car will be called?

too bad they changed the design after 1965.  Should have stuck with a perfected classic design like Porsche always did and just improve things like suspension brakes and engine.  (and improved the headlight mechanism!) Could not get much better than 65
