What a project ...

Had me going for a minute! I was assuming the car pictured was SEA 770...!! 605 KUE has a standard 541S steering rack, being 4" wider it passes the manifold (Just) . I remember the 70's JOC article saying it had a different from standard column route and there was still evidence of this in SEA 770......

Could look smart if done well. Depends what colour you are going to choose for the body.
