I had a discussion with Jerry Woods a few years back when I was considering stuffing a 3.6 in my '73 targa street/track car. He said the h.p. wasn't the problem, it was the stress on the chassis from running bigger tires to get more stick through the corners. At that time I was running 225's & 275 Hoosiers with a 3.2. He suggested the only way to reinforce the body would have been to put in a full cage and tie it in to the A pillars. I doubt if this car would see any track use. Not sure why targas get such a bad rap for body flex, but that's another discussion.

I agree, without a DP build sheet the history of the car is pretty sketchy.
