supposedly very rare:
TALON GT 2+2 . A fiberglass body assembly built for VW type 1 floor pan and running gear. Only 6 bodies were built and 4 are known to remain. TALON GT 2+2's were built in the late 1970's and early 1980's

6 being built seems to be the best part of that story :-#

It's kinda funky. Back to the future or some shit. :-& =P~ 8-[ but it's gotta be worth building just to have something not everybody has

Not sure what to make of this? Are you building it? That body is weird, looks like it has a camper shell?

Yes, funky and rare. Has a similar feel to the March Hare kit, also a 60s kit car. very short run, but a few of them were finished. For some weird reason I sort of like these odd styles.

Probably stating the obvious, but are the first and second pic supposed to be the same car? I don't mind so much the one by the plane, but the pic of the bare shell is not even close to that car.
...but that's just me.

Weird kit cars are kind of an in joke around our shop...........

I picked up this a few years back (Aussie made Marauder, Type 3 based) did nothing with it and sold it to my offsider.

He then went on to find a couple more......

The red one was a turn key car sold by the company, much nicer finished than the other two, plus its got a 13B Rotary so it's kinda fun \:D/
