Cheetah! Built by Bill Thompson in the mid-sixties, and powered by a Chevy small block, they only weighed 1700 lbs. That is a heck of a power-to-weight ratio!

Iso Grifo. Also small-block Chevy powered, except for the last few, which had Ford 351s.

This one should be easy.

Pantera. I always liked those a lot, a supercar for the everyman. Ford 351 in an Italian chassis.

One of my best friends has one, and while the engine is pretty stout, the Italian part of the package is problematic, with the typical Italian rust and electrical issues of Italian cars of that era. But they have a devoted following, so you can get stainless steel replacements for the common pieces that rust away, such as the front radiator support.
