Runs 13.50's all day. Replaced brakes,brake lines, fuel line, fuel tank Paint is Daimler Chrysler Tangerine Pearl. Very straight, I spent months on the body work. Some rust bubbling through, and some dings here and there. The rear bumper needs replaced/rechromed. The floors are not the greatest shape, but no major holes. No carpet, seats are from a Daytona. The suspension in front is all orginal except the upper balljoints. Needs lower balljoints and alignment to be correct. Drives great, really quick off the line, drive it, show it, or race it.
Found this little car in a field back in 2000. Brought it home and cleaned it up. Engine was already gone and the original pushbutton I sold. I installed a 5.9L Magnum from a 97 Ram 4X4. With a built A-904 full manual reverse valve body, used a 65 column to grab gears with. Replace the weak little 7 1/4 rear with an 8 3/4 filled with 3.55's and a trac-loc. To it to the track and ran a 13.50 out the door. Drag raced for 4 years, then I restored myself including paint and body work. The rear roll pan is cut out for exhuast tips, for that cuda' look.
