Reader’s Rides: Kegan Banister’s 1974 Plymouth Scamp

Today’s reader’s ride is a teenager’s first car, owned by Kegan Banister from Indiana.¬†Writes Kegan:

My first car at 15 is a 1974 Plymouth Scamp 318/904 car, purchased from the original owners family. It came with some dealer paperwork, had a near mint Broadcast sheet in the back seat. Originally KY4 Golden Fawn/Gold. I’m building it as a 70s/80s sorta street machine (8track and all). Currently building a ’68 340/727 for it. I’ve not really had to do all that much to the car since I purchased it. All bodywork has been finished on it, re-chromed bumpers put on. The picture of it in three colors is right after I had bought it.

Definitely a great introduction to the hobby! More pics after the jump!

It then got the full pro touring treatment and then a twin turbo motor out of a Toyota Supra. What do you think? Sacrilegious? More pics after the jump! Via
