I like that radio more than I do the car...and it may be worth more as well.Also a wooden shift knob and very nice radio surround & period AM/FM radio
I also see it has one of the chrome "wing" handle gas caps that should clean up pretty well. Indeed there are a handful of neat parts on it. The junker X that I got also had some good equipment on it, which was the main reason I got the car. However most of that equipment turned out to be bad, and I actually paid for my beater. Plus I think yours might even be in a little better condition, if there is such a thing.
Hey Mike, that photo reminds me of something I've been noticing lately. Those 70's three-tone wide stripes - often red/orange/yellow, or brown/orange/tan, etc - are making a comeback. I've noticed several vehicles with them, including on a couple show cars at SEMA this year.Now that's an old photo!
Back in the early 70's when I was in high school I knew a guy that worked at the local BMW/Porsche/VW dealer. He was into racing German cars in SCCA. I spent a fair amount of time hanging out at Riverside Raceway watching those cars race, and in the garages/pits studying how they were built. I envisioned making street versions of such cars (which is what I still do). Anyway, I often visited him at the dealer; he was able to let me "test drive" all sorts of the cars off the lot (first learned how to do burn-outs in a new BMW 2002). And there was a local guy that the dealer had come around to add those same stripes to some of the vehicles in the showroom. He had vinyl 'stick-on' material in all widths and colors and created his own designs by mounting them in various combinations. Everything from simple pinstripes to extremely complex (and frankly ugly) patterns, but those three-tone wide stripes were most popular then. He was quite skilled doing it freehand; I'd watch him do a complete car thinking 'I can do that' (although it turns out I'm not so skilled at such artistic tasks). Very cool to see old trends make their way back around.
Speaking of making street versions of race cars. One of the ideas I'm considering for my outlaw X is no windows; replace the windshield with a half height "speedster" style windscreen, close up the tops of the door window slits, leave the targa bar open. Make it a true "roadster" with no top, just the targa bar. Maybe even weld the doors shut and remove all the hardware. Like I mentioned earlier, sort of along the lines of the Runabout.
