About

This car was started by a man who was going through a divorce and could not finish it. The person who bought it next came down with heart problems and could not do anything with the car. The car was painted when I bought it; I finished the entire inside including all new dash and gauges. I got an extra 454 engine and turbo transmission and Barry Grant 950 carburetor in the deal. The engine was running hot so I built the extra engine and installed it into the car. The only problem is you can be running 60 MPH down the highway and floor it and it will break the tires loose. I do not consider this much of a problem as long as I am the one behind the wheel and not the passenger.
