I'll bet the car was finished at one time by the looks...

It's custom framed and may have good room inside...

Be interesting to see if it's rear engine or mid... might have the reverse R &P!

but most of thesewere v8's

Looking at how close the rear wheels are to the back of the car it almost has to be mid-engined. Trying to figure out the front end steering box doesn't ring a bell.

Pretty sure that one was called a Manta Mirage, they also made another Manta, but I don't remember the model name...
I thought I had a pic of one(local car), but I do not.
VERY COOL looking car, I also would love to have it. I play with fibreglass.
About a 6 hour drive from me.

Yes,I now see this car is also a Montage...
The Mirage was the original copy of a Lola. Back in the 70's, I bought a Hotrod mag with a red Montage on the cover, and wanted one ever since ! Damn, I wish I could afford that right now. I found this, though

There's a red one of those I see running around our town from time to time. It looks really cool coming, but personally I think its ugly going...
