All parts carefully planned out and assembled. All the best American made parts and machine work used, no cost was spared. Car has never been raced, and current motor, trans and rear end configuration have only a few hundred miles on them. Put together with the intention to be a fast street car and raced every once in a while, but has sat in garage like this for past several years.

Additional pictures available, can try to send video of it running or do face-time or similar, car is located in Huntington Beach, CA and available to inspect in person. Car starts and drives as expected.

I'm helping a friend sell this car, we live in the same town a few miles apart, so will coordinate responses to answers and make arrangements to inspect fairly quick. Thanks
