sold

Bought this with a buddy to rebuild it but things change and family circumstances dictated he back out. I already have Scratcher so this one is for sale now. It has not run in 10+ years and the motor is blown (hole in block). Unknown if the heads (look to be AFR 210s) are okay. Muncie trans. Dry sump. Motor kicked back (53% on rear according to old weight sheets!!!!!) and C3 IRS. Trick front suspension that is light and quickly spring-rate adjustable. Glass front windshield. Race body comes off with dzus fasteners.

Folks, people at HPDE/Races always are shocked to hear how little money I have in Scratcher for beating up on deep 5 and 6 figure (and 7 as well!) cars. At the end of 2014 season I still had under 25k in Scratcher in hard costs (not consumables). Had to get fresh head castings but I'm still under 30 at this point and love it.

At the price point of this car, a fresh smallblock is inexpensive (depending on power...could do NASA TT/ST power-to-weight and do very well in ST3/St2/St1) and the overall cost could be substantially less than Scratcher with IRS (I'd kill for that) and more rear weight bias. Scratcher's biggest limitation right now is forward bite off the corners and rear weight bias helps that. This car has great potential. Stop tracking a car that is worth serious money and step over to a tube=style car (this is a heavily modified factory frame) where the body pops off in 5 minutes for ease of work and consumables are reasonable and you could actually go a lot faster.

This is clearly a project car, but it seems to all be there (no carb, no battery, etc). I've removed the seat as a potential buyer wanted to see how much room was there (and the seat was not safe by any means!).

Put a small block in it, freshen it and go racing....likely vintage eligible. Or swap to LS and get even better weight distribution!

TO REITERATE = THIS IS A PROJECT CAR. WILL NEED WORK. SOME FASTENERS MISSING, CAR WAS RACED (body not perfect), ETC ETC. Not a show car... RACE CAR. Will need thorough going-over!

Car is located an hour north of Houston (Bryan, TX). Car can be pushed/rolled onto a trailer. I can potentially drive to meet a buyer (depending on schedules and such) for a moderate fee.

That looks fun...and I have a splayed main cap small block (if anyone buys this and needs an engine....only because I just bought a car).

Thanks Kevin.
Trust me, I've thought about freshening it and looked at your motor as a basis to do so. Get it on track, go fast, then sell it.

But I've got enough projects and this one (I think) is priced pretty damn strong for everything there.... we'll see.

They are Gotti rims.

I talked to a vintage guy and he said the wheels, the muncie, diff, and the front brakes all fetch good prices if I wanted to part it out. I'm hoping someone sees the potential to go very quickly with very little money and buys it!
