Car is a snapshot of drag racing in the early to mid 60’s. Between the stance, wheel combination, windows, bumpers, suspension, interior, it is all to reflect the time when drag racing took off.When manufactures were building altered factory-eXperimental (A/FX) cars and the “match bash” gassers.All before funny cars came around in the late 60’s.This is the car that starts conversations with the “old timers”.


If I were to keep this car I would change the motor oil in it and get it tuned to get all the HP out of it. Car runs great, but I know it could run amazing if I got the Air-fuel ratio tuned. This is my 3rd car right now and paying registration and insurance is getting costly $$$. I hate to see it go, but my loss is going to be your gain.
