Reggie- pretty sure that’s a k-71 Komet piston port motor. That was the forunner of the hpv, probably a horstman/ LT oil clutch.  Check the oil in the clutch before you start it.  Fairly fast stuff. Todays hpv has a different crank half and clutch. Appears to have been well taken care of, no class today for it in sprinters that I know of.  Throw an LO206 on it and go race it.
