mercury sable 4-dr (the grandmother car with the covered wheels)... RWD, tubbed, big drag radials, then... whether to keep it stock-looking or not. if not... slammed, suicide doors, dechromed, rims. if yes, then just tint the windows lightly, put a roll bar/cage in, and some good race seats. and then a blown big block, either way. or just stick a tube chassis and a built 350 under a beater toyota body.
just my 2.

1959 Edsel coupe. If I told you what I want to do it might not be original whenever I get around to doing it. Don't ask me why, I used to hate them, but all of a sudden I would like to have one.
