        Looking at the car it should fetch a fair amount. A Daytona body and an Avanti engine. Yeah it will probably go for a little less being a clone, the Daytona body+Avanti engine, rather than a full on Daytona package car. The only gripe I have is the ignition shielding, and the serial number. The ignition shielding, with the exception of some R3 cars in the early Hot Rod articles, and those were only just the guides for the spark plug wires, had none I know of. The Avanti engine should have a JTC (Jet Thrust Canada)or JTSC (Jet Thrust Supercharged Canada), rather than the RK moniker. Others can chime in, but I dont know of any Hamilton cars leaving with JT engines. Other than that, it looks like a nice Daytona

            I disagree; a clone is going to be wrong no matter if it has an Avanti, a US, or Canadian JT or JTS transplant engine! [:0] The coolness and value would be the same! [][:0] Of course, a bit less $ than the real thing. But if you drove that thing, you would change your mind! [^]

                You would be surprised then how many people I've surprised with the 63 Hawk JTS engine then. There's no real obvious differences as far as the public is concerned, on the Larks and R-powered Larks when all of the parts are correctly installed, including the ol' firewall tag. The only exception is the production order, where the truth of the car belies. Wrong, probably, any less cool, well, only to the owner, and he's pretty content with it . As far as driving one, well, I have one as daily transportation!!
