About

I built this car about 22 years ago and sold it to a friend that still has it. It still runs great. I tried to buy it back, but he won't sell it to anyone.

Specs

.30 over 455 with a Don Hampton 6-71 blower. Makes about 500 on the motor, just spinning the blower 1 to 1. It's built well enough to go to 9 to 12 % over and make about 800 on the motor, but the guy i sold it to is too scared of it at that level. I offered to drive it for him at the local drag strip, but he is too proud for that. i told him hey I drive for a bunch of people, it's no big deal. I've been lucky all my life to be able to squeeze whatever a car has in it out of it.
