This car was built to be a drag and street machine all in one. However it never did make it to the track. It has about 300 miles on it since it was rebuilt in 2011-2012. I had the carb refreshed by Pro Systems a few months ago, and also had a local performance shop do some minor maintenance on it to get it running perfect since it's been sitting for a while. See below for the specs.I have an inch thick file folder with almost every single receipt from the build.
VIDEO: took this in January right after the mechanic did his magic.

Issues:Speedometer is not connected. A new speedo cable gear will be needed.Front wheels rub slightly on lower A-arms. Driving on the street is fine, but moving around in the parking lot is a slightly more difficult. Narrower wheels would be the best fix.Remote door openers do not work (for the shave door handles). I have a new set but I haven't installed it yet. Door must be opened through window.
