Looks like a widebody kit. Fat tires would make that look better.
Now, a 600cfm carb sounds a little light for 375hp, especially when a good q-jet flows over 700cfm.
I do like the hood though, should push a lot of cooling air through there

Why does it sit so high? It was probably wrecked and customized out the wazoo. $20k for any '74 is crazy.

Although I like custom C3's some are better than others. This one should have stopped at 1. And why does the seller think only 5 made are significant? It's not a factory build so it doesn't matter one way or the other. I guess BT Barnum is right. SUCKERS!

I can tell you from experience that he doesn't need a jive translator in person or after a couple of beers.
