Supercharged Avanti II - Unknown
So this was found on the Internet around December 2009. The story accompanying the pictures is a totally erroneous. It is an Avanti II, but sports a single master cylinder, so it could be an 65 model. There was an old magazine article about an early Newman & Altman effort to put a Paxton on a 327. The article described the car as having very poor performance and the car was originally white. This car had a very amateur re-paint, so...

This car does have what looks like a 327 and a Holley carb. The Paxton installation looks very suspect however, as there were other mounts available and much better looking than what's on this car. The height of this one is a bit over the top.

I'll post more on this as I can find it..
