It has been my passion for 5+ years. I went completely through the car to make it my own and to make sure it is 100% and well tuned and sorted. It is turn key and ready to enjoy. ***No expense spared*** Drag raced it 1 x on 1/4 mile and 2 x on 1/8 mile - just for fun but it is super fast. Mostly take it to local cruise nights and car shows, I drive it to work on nice days, and I took it to Carlisle several times. It won 1st place at the Carlisle Mopar weekend fun field! Well sorted and in excellent condition, turn key and enjoy! Street legal, registered and inspected. Pump gas. Needs nothing. I just had engine freshened with all new bearings, rings (stock bore) had the heads done over, brand new 3500 stall converter and 4.11 gears (more street friendly than the 4.56's it had). I also had a custom 3" Exhaust system installed with cross over and tailpipes. New Mopar dual batteries. Literally less than 10 miles on all new parts - still breaking it in. When we tore down the engine we were shocked to find a top fuel billet crank. We upgraded to Indy roller rockers to match the roller cam. Super cool car it is the hit of any show. The interior is period correct racer with vintage seats, full dash and roll bar, but no carpet or door panels.
