Add any pics, stories, details and comments that you can remember.
If the car had a name and it's not in the title let us know.

Two shots by Warren Houston at the Hamilton Show circa 1973...
.Imagine driving all the way from Christchurch to Hamilton with a wild twin-fours on a cross ram intake fed FE motor up front, no doubt with a voracious appetite for gas .....note the smaller(than Project T) Glass Repros body made in Christchurch... Barry Livermore is still there and still sells 'em

John Duthie owned and raced this bucket in southland, it had a 327 and run 12's, It was painted maroon with 80's style graphics, I think it was featured in NZHRM in this paint scheme, but running a BBFord, in the mid to late eighties.
Eric Eaves bought it off John years ago and ran it in the 12's with a 350, then mid 10's with a 406sb chev. He changed the colour to red then mid metallic blue. The car is now nearly finished with a total rebuild with a 6/71 on top of a 454 BB chev, its currently being certed etc. Eric is trying to keep the car true to the evolution that Rob Kennard had in mind and has built it in keeping with the 70's style and parts that were availible then.
