Yep, I bought it in 1973 for $900. It was running, so was probably worth it. I drove it home and got there in one piece! Here's what it looked like when I bought it:

I took it all the way apart in the '70s, had kids in the '80s and neglected it and in '89 rebuilt it as a Vintage Race car. Here's a shot of it in its debut in late '89. Our first race was on Grand Bahama Island in January of 1990.

Lots of fond memories. It was reasonably fast - faster than the brakes liked! In a 10 Lap race I had to think and plan for the brakes. Too fast at the first 5 laps and I had to coast the last 5!!!

Best wishes,
