I'm selling my baby because I am getting married and moving so I will have no room for her. I would hate to have her sit in a storage locker!! The car is being sold with no title. The previous owner had it titled in Idaho and the original owner had it titled in California. Pennsylvania would not allow the car to be titled without a long list of modifications. I used it on private roads and to take to local car shows. I would say that the engine isn't even fully broken in yet!! Kids love it. they actually think that it's a giant Hot Wheel!! I call it The Grin Machine. whoever sees it just gawks at it and grins!!! The chassis is a tube frame. with a Mustang II front end and a Late model Corvair rear suspension. There are air springs at all four corners. along with a compressor and built in air tank. The wheels are Gotti racing wheels. the tires are Toyo Proxes ultra high performance. It truly does handle as if on rails. no body lean. no tire squeeling. It just goes wherever you point it. fast!! The engine is a small block chevy. iron block. aluminum heads. Holley carb. high torque starter. custom headers and Borla exhaust. The car was said to weigh about 1800lbs and dynoed at 429 hp in Boise. ID. So. figure at least 450 at sea level. It is very tractable at low speeds. but if you floor it. it will snap your neck back and rev like a race engine to redline!! The nitty gritty: in general. the paint is in very good shape. no spider webbing. etc. There is some chipping along the edges of the gull wing half doors. The car is not running now due to a leaking fuel bowl. I believe that when I took it to the Carb shop. the screws on the front fuel bowl were stripped to the point where they held for awhile. but the vibration eventually loosened them up. I have a Holley helicoil kit to repair it. but I haven't been able to git 'er done as of yet. Also. the car has been sitting for a couple of years now. It is raised up on jacks to keep the tires off the ground and under a car cover. Note. I am also including a Pro Stock type snorkel because that was one of the state of PA 's requirements. the carberator could not sit above the rear hatch.

Sorry about the links. I had them listed. but ebay wouldn't allow it.
Finally. pleeeease bid to win. but have the ability to to pay when the auction is over. Thank you!!
