Kirk, any idea whatever became of the George Barris Super Marauder? All the info I can find online just regurgitates the same blurb from the original brochure.

Nope, but it could easily be hiding in a shed out there some where. It might turn up some day.

Would be interesting if in your spare time you could delve deeper into what makes a Marauder a Marauder other than engine packages. You hit on it briefly, but I think an editor would want to know more. Interior options, 0 to 60, etc. Wonder if Steve Babcock has any connections with Ford's archive dept? Wouldn't doing research in the Ford library be fun.
