Prior owner said the engine was rebuilt and only had one or two weekends on it prior to transfer to current owner.  Reportedly 140 Hp at flywheel.  This car is very competitive and current owner could easily stay with a similar car at Buttonwillow last May.  At WSR Swift turned easy low 1:30s with old tiresFormula Ford guru, Roland Johnson of San Diego did major freshening of chassis, including resizing all attachment points of suspension, rebuilt steering rack and transmission.  Rebuilt Fox reservoir shocks. Rebuilt and re-foamed the fuel tank.( Been using AV gas for fuel good up to 12 to 1 compression).  Rebuilt brake calipers. Rebuilt starter motor.  And changed gearing to be suitable for Willowsprings and Buttonwillow.  With redline  RPM reached prior to entering turn 1 at WSR. There are an unbelievable number of spares.  See pictures. Including four wheels, extra rear wing assembly and front wings.  Also all of the relevant pieces to build another rear wing assembly.  The car has a very recently added diffuser see pictures. The Swift has a recently added Pi computer system with the device to hang from a fence to measure lap times.  Plus the relevant books for the Pi System and books for the Hewland Transmission.


Current owner is 6'3" and 200 lbs;  admittedly a very tight fit but possible.  Original log book indicates racing  from January 1990 by R. Mc Daniel to January 1997. Book 2 missing.  Book 3 indicates racing from June 2011 by Mark Powell.  Then raced by a few time by prior  owner from May 2014 to July 2015. Current owner  has ran the Swift two track days at Willow Springs Raceway in California and one track day at Buttonwillow California.
