The Story:

This restoration began in 2012 as a light pro-touring build commissioned by the previous owner. The body work, paint, and initial assembly was done by Classic Cars of McHenry in Illinois. The car had a stock style interior, stock subframe with DSE Speed kit 3, Ride Tech rear, and carbureted LSx454 with T-56 magnum. I purchased the car in 2016 with 1,200 miles on initial build and began taking it to the next level with the purpose of auto-crossing and taking the car to track days. The car was fully disassembled, swapped to fuel injection with the Harrop ITB manifold and all systems were upgraded. This included adding the 14” Wilwood braking system, re-wiring the entire car, adding the Speedtech Extreme subframe, adding 10.5” wide front wheels, having a professionally crafted interior with high end materials installed, upgrading the fuel system, gauges, and stereo to name a few. I’ve taken this car to a few track days and several auto cross events including Goodguys Columbus this year. The goal was to create a mechanically exotic and unique drive train with the Harrop ITB intake, carbon fiber air boxes, S1 Sequential shifter, and carry the carbon theme to the interior while keeping the exterior mostly “stock” looking. I chose the Speedtech subframe to fit the wide front tires and their very robust steering system. I went with the 295s to avoid any rubbing issues. Speedtech says a 315 tire will fit. Some serious guys are running 335s up front with fender mods with the Extreme subframe. I’ve driven a couple full DSE suspension cars which ride excellent, but I like the firmer steering feel of the Speedtech Extreme system better. Both are great systems. All manuals, documents, receipts, and a few hundred photos will be included with the sale. I can send anyone who is seriously interested a link to all the photos to outlining the build(s) on this car. Car has about 600 miles on its latest round of modifications, bringing the total drive train mileage to about 1,800. The car rides great, handles well, sounds very mean, and gets compliments at every event. Drive to the track with the AC on, jamming your favorite tunes, compete, and drive home. The car is sorted out.

I encourage you to ask questions, and inspections are welcome. These builds are very unique and everything is best explained and shown in person if possible. I can send a google drive link to hundreds of photos if interested. This is a lot of money to spend on a car. Please, serious inquiries only and do your research. As we all know, there is far more invested in these builds in labor and parts than the asking price reflects.

I'm not looking for trades at this time. Please don't waste time with low ball offers. I'm not hard pressed to sell. This is not a bondo bandit with a junkyard LS motor and some craigslist wheels slapped on it. All parts are top quality. I'm asking about what I have into the car in parts alone. No labor! If your budget/wife/husband/kids college payment doesn't permit a car at this price, no worries. There are plenty of nice $60k, $80k, $100k pro touring cars out there. This is not one of those. Don't text me asking "what's the lowest you'll take?" That's a waste of our time and I'll know you just aren't serious or you accidentally texted me instead of the guy selling the rusted out 89 IROC Z.

phone: three three O - four O 6 - six three 5 three for serious buyers.

I can store the car in my heated garage until spring and even assist with delivery in an enclosed trailer within a reasonable distance. If you live across the county, I can help arrange shipping and work with the selected transporter. Please contact me to work something out. If you plan to just show and cruise in the car, I can set the alignment less aggressively prior to pick up.

The car doesn't move from my property until funds clear. Period.
