Vehicle runs strong and idles well in traffic. Stays cool with new TSR aluminum 2-pass radiator, electric fan, and adjustable fan controller in cab. I have not used this car on the strip so do not know what times it might run. Would expect it can turn mid-8sec in 1/4mile.
The car starts every time but is very cold blooded as no chokes on either carb. Vacuum secondaries on both carbs. Boost gauge on firewall to show when blower is powering up. This 8-71 blower only builds boost when power is applied, not in neutral. Runs great once it is warmed up.
Runs on premium pump gas plus octane booster. I use Shell V-Power and Lucas octane booster with good success.
Car is sold as-is with no warranty. Shipping is responsibility of buyer. I can assist in loading or I might be able to deliver in my enclosed car hauler for an added fee to be negotiated.
