Was looking at it again because of some questions. Haven't worked on it in 7 years or so. Has the Holley pro Strip Annihilator ignition. The one box my shop cats must have walked over it and the plastic part of plug got cracked up.. wires still look ok. Will put battery in it in the morning to make sure it still works. The one box is mounted on dash just because it needed to be grounded when I took it to the other shop to have cage installed. Wanted to be able to drive it on and off the trailer. I had the other box mounted in the glove box. Adding a few more pics. One thing I forgot to mention it has gauges that mounted under the dash cause I didn't trust the originals in the dash. And one thing forgot to mention It does have dual oxygen sensors an gauges for each side of header. I was running a six pack on it and heard they were hard to tune.... pffft.. Was nice to be able to see each oxygen gauge for each side of engine. Beats pulling plugs to geek at them. Didn't have to tune the six pack set up in over 10,000 miles. Added pics of o2 sensors and subframe connectors... running out of pics on ebay. Drove this car on Hotrods Power Tour in 98 and was a long hauler... drove from Montana to California to Detroit and back to Montana in about 14 days... it was fun. Put on Polished torker intake cause I was going to install my supercharger and water injection but got to busy. Way it goes.

I puta battery in it to test ignition, t still works. Engine just needs carb and alternator to run. I have aluminum fuel cell for it but no fuel pump. I just ran electric fuel pump no mechanical fuel pump on it.

Last night a friend came over with a holley 750 carb . Bolted it on. Filled carb with gas and it fired right up after 8 years sitting idle.... sweet. Didn't run it long. No alternator on car which has same belt to run water pump. Was nice hearing it run after years of sitting idle. :) Last four pictures were taken back in 1998. Engine currently has 4 barrel intake and no carb. I do have a carb on it now... I took a vid of engine running last week. Have a lot more pictures but ebay only lets you post 24. I do have pictures on a photo hosting site.On Jul-13-15 at 15:00:16 PDT, eller added the following information:
Along with the fuel cell, have roll of 1/2 aluminum fuel line, urrently has 3/8 front to back, ave big box of new anodized fittings for braided lines, nd Russel fuel filters, blocks. 10,8 and 6 to plumb the carb.On Jul-13-15 at 17:58:01 PDT, eller added the following information:
Engine has Total Seal gapless rings. Block was drilled and tapped for 1/2" hemi pickup tube. Lifter valley was polished smooth to help oil return. One of the front oil plugs behind the timing chain was drilled withtiny hole to help keep double roller chain lubed and last longer. Oil slinger on crank doesn't sling enough oil on the chain imo. The four barrel holley on car right now does not go with car. It was loaner so I could get video of engine running. Floors and trunk are not rusty prior owner started to build it into race car. He pulled carpet out long time ago and must have kept it inside most of the time. So it had no carpet in it to hold moisture and rust the floor. I have owned car since the mid-late 90s and have always stored it inside. Except when driving to car shows. I have new black carpet for it. Might just be for the front though will check again tonight.On Jul-13-15 at 19:37:43 PDT, eller added the following information:
Looked again tonight. Have new carpet but its just for the front. I didn't plan on putting in a backseat. Thought I had a passenger factory seat for it buts its just another drivers side seat. Does come with a poly high back race bucket. Its like new... but I took it out... factory seats are more comfortable for driving all day in the heat.On Jul-15-15 at 21:24:53 PDT, eller added the following information:
Did some digging in my cave... found more parts. Found the rear valance panel for it that was on the car. Its not as bad as I remembered. Still usable for street strip car. But it has dings dents and some wrinkles. Fixable if you want to spend time doing it. Ok for a driver or race car. I was just going to put on a repro one. Found second black bucket poly race seat with aluminum brackets to mount to floor. One of the seats I trimmed down the aluminum and drilled it to mount factory bucketseat slider mounts to it so it was right height and it would slide back an forth with the side lever. Slider mount doesn't come with it.It hasto go back on my other car. One of the seat cover needs some stitching near a rivet... other seat has perfect cover but missing snap on seat to snap it to. Look at the pics. Still nice seats. So two poly race buckets with aluminum mounts goes with car and one factory driverbucket seat. Could not find a spare passenger seat. Uploaded pictures to photobucket if you want to geek at more pictures of the car. I can send a link not sure if ebay will let me post link to photobucket for peeps to see more pics.. they are funny that way. Still looking for the trunk lid that came with car. I cant find it But I don't remember throwing it away. They make repros and fiberglass ones. Please ask for more pictures or info. I have good feedback. Due to first auction not working out due to new user with 0 feedback and 0 transactions and id created in last 48 hours of auction I am reserving the right to sell to the next lowest bidder if they fail to pay deposit within 24 hours or fail to contact me or respond to my emails. Really sucks when new user throws in bid and does not carry through with transaction. Car can be viewed in person. And it can be fired up for them to hear. Or I can send link to vid of engine running. I do my best to keep 100% positive feedback. Been on ebay 15 years... not cool when new users throw out bids and ties up your action for 10 days. And peeps with 0 feedback have no repercussions to them. Thank you. Sorry about my rant... ;)On Jul-19-15 at 23:58:24 PDT, eller added the following information:
Did more digging in my parts. Still no trunk lid. Maybe I did toss it. It had repro rear wing that didn't match my other cudas trunk lid for bolt holes. Had lightweight plastic repro wing not fiberglass. and holes didn't jive with my other factory rear trunk lid. So maybe I tossed it since holes were in wrong place. Still have the old wing but its aftermarket crap and needs to be helicoiled to use again. And wouldn't want to drill a repro rear decklid to put it on. Forgot to mention car does have digital trans temp gage... put it in because I thought high stall converter would make more heat. Old converter trans temp was around 185-195. Now has better turbo action 3800 converter. But haven't driven it since new one was put in. So no ideawhat the trans temp will be. Should be more efficient than the other I was running. Dynamic and Turbo action make nice convertors and many racers like them.
