I loved that Mustang, Vampirella or Heartbreaker as it was also known, and this seems to be a P6 version of it or rather it reminds me of it, so a big thumbs up from me combining two of my loves from motoring history.

I like it too. But I think it would look much better if you blacked out the screen surround trim, the gutters and the B post trim - leave the glass frames bright. How about a photoshop(or should that be photchop?) Rick?

Had to look twice to convince myslef it wasn't a BMW. For some reason, I kind of like it too :shock: I can't explain why but it kind of looks OK :shock: Maybe I need therapy :? .

I wonder what the technical specs or mod list was.

Looks tall and there is a lot of clearance on the rear arches.

The side exhaust is outrageous but I wonder what kind of lump was connected to it.

Surely someone out there must have some knowledge of such a distinctive P6??

Hi, a common mod at the time was to fit Jag rear end but I am not sure on this
occasion. However it has modified rear arches and I think 15" wheels, probably
XJ6 tyres on. With modded arch and door he hasn't had to worry about D post
clearance and would raise it's stance.

You have to wonder who would put such things on a P6 :D

I carried those exhausts from Custom car show in London, back on the train to Dorset :shock: Was a lot fitter in those days
