You are looking at an amazing example of a tribute to the racing legend Fireball Roberts.

This car is started it's life in Florida and now lives in NC. It was rust free and solid before the restoration and has been kept in doors ever since. We made every effort to maintain the themeof a period correctconvertable series race car while making this car a street legal driver. This car has:

Arebuilt correct 312 Y block motor.

Correct 3 speed column shifter. We replace the transmission with a 67 mustang full synchro transmission for much better drivability and endurance.

It has a 4 barrel Holly carb, an electronic ignition under the cap, rebuilt brakes, hidden head lights, a push button ignition system, complete Dyna-mat insulation and sound proofing.

We preserved or replace all the chrome and preserved all the body molding. We added air controlled rear shocks, and installed a period correct roll cage was installed.

The windshield is perfect and there are no major defects anywhere. This car is not perfect but it's pretty cool to say the least. Everywhere we go the car draws huge crowds and the stories start from there. We recently had the car in Daytona for speed week, it was a hit and will be featured in their yearly catalog for racing history. We had many racing legends come by and visit and even had them sign the trunk lid of the car.

This is NOT a stressed sale so please don't be silly with offers or expectations. We went to great lengths to make this car fun, drivable and a tribute to a legend. We won't give it away!
