Default Mini Muscle Car

A Craigslist find I couldn't turn down. Renault Dauphine. A rediculous little French car. This one will have either a 283 or 400 Chevy in front.

Body is in quite good shape as the car only saw 57,000 miles. Comes complete with title and plates.

Always loved those little cars! When I was a kid a neighbor had one, the only one I ever saw until a few years ago. A 283 and a Powerglide would be sweet in one of those.

BobW you are my hero! Adding yet another obscure project to the long list of ones you already have going!

Idea: I think it needs foot wide IMSA style flares, a pedestal wing and an LS 6spd drive train for the win!
