Nicest first-gen Laser 917 out there?

I was really wowed when Barry from San Diego sent me this photo and description of his car. It’s a series A Laser 917 (serial number unknown), although you can see that extensive body work has been done. The core chassis is Porsche 914, as is the built 5-speed transmission, and the suspension and brakes are Porsche 911. To top it all off, it’s powered by a Chevy 350 V8 — this is almost certainly the fastest and best handling Laser 917A on the street.

Oh, and he’s running Potenza tires and a custom interior…. I should post more pictures of his supercar I think!

    I would be VERY interested in obtaining more pictures of this 917. I sold my 917 three years ago. It was s/n 107 also a model A.
