Nice, especially the Lime green small block 914. I think Porsche knocked out 2 or 3 flat 8 versions

Yep. It has an AMC 360 V8.

I remember back when I was a kid seeing one just like it in my Grandpa's shop from time to time. It was owned by a  Dentist who used it as a daily driver. Grandpa was always fixing the door lifts. The were hydraulic and very weak and the gull wing doors weighed a ton...

This car brought back some good memories.

I got a chance to talk to the owner of that one. He said it wasn't really that hard to put the SBC in there.
It has a 901 trans/axle with an adapter plate and 911 half shafts. I bet it's fast too.

Makes me want to get my hands on one of the repopped Revell kits and build one...

Stop now, or I'll be looking for one myself! Tamiya lime green...

Apparentlly it's a fairly popular conversion over there, even the 916 only had 110 bhp which even a very mild small block would double at least.
I'd imagine an all alloy Corvette engine would be great.
