Here is one I recently acquired.
Little bit of back story: The car was originally build by a guy named Don, widely known in the 3000GT world as "GTWizard" It currently holds the 3.0L NA Power record world wide, while its not much, it made a solid 240whp on a mustang dyno with room to spare - Currently it's probably closer to 260whp. Its builder and owner sadly passed away earlier this year in march, His son put the car up forsale finally in august, and as a huge NA Power Engine fanatic for really anything - I jumped on it. I had been itching to build a NA 6G72, as they are accidentally great NA motors. and one of my previous 3000GT's still holds the Stock Cam and or Stock Header record...if you can really call it a record.... I put a deposit on the car almost instantly, and bought a plane ticket to Texas, picked the car up, and drive it 18 hours home to Wisconsin.
The car is very light weight (for a 3000GT) coming in at 2896lbs (3080 with me in it, sitting on the scale. At 240whp, and just barely under 2900lbs, that means it makes more power and weighs less then a fully loaded NSX. It still has Power windows, Locks. Heated Mirrors, etc.
There is still alot of weight to be shaved off the car, as the sheet metal, body, glass, etc is all 100% factory. I'm hoping to get the car down to 2600lbs comfortably.

Some pictures of how I got it. Mainly Most of what I've done with the car since I bought it is just cleaning some of the mess up, making it more bearable for non track use.
Photobombing my buddy Ryans 996 GT3.
Car had been sitting for months, ontop of never really getting washed to begin with, so that was one of the first things I did with it.
Stripped the interior for cleaning, also removed all unwanted/unneeded weight
The Body, Chassis, and Engine wiring harness was really hacked up - mainly to shave weight, which is fine, but it wasn't done very well. I blew several fuses from poorly protected snipped wires that would ground out on other wires or the chassis... Luckily I had a entire wiring harness from a 1992 3000GT SL so I pulled it all out and replaced it.
I wanted to make this still midly street car - the Interior doesn't really add much weight, so I replaced alot of it. I'm going for more of a track ready type super car theme. Some practicality, but sensible about weight.
I had a good amount of spare interior pieces so I added most of it back to the car, the Momo Steering wheel I bought 2nd Hand off ebay, I wanted something a little more classic Momo, but was still period correct for the car, happened to find that one at a decent price and jumped on it. I love it.
The body/Chassis is extremely clean as you can see here
Added my own personal touch to the engine bay, also cleaned up alot of the mess, new battery with tie down I made all my own cables, etc.
The Distribution block I built
Close of up wiring harness
When I got the car, the Fuel pump power wire was just hanging loose in the cabin, wire nutted together right in the middle, and was 3 or 4 various sizes of wire in total all spliced together. I couldn't have that. So I ran one solid run of cable from the relay to the battery, with loom, secured it properly, and called it a day.
