IT spec. engine. $15,000+ invested over the last 5 years [with receipts]. Best of everything. ZERO rust and never bent or cut. Sold new in Riverside CA. and in New Mexico for the last 25 years. No expense spared in the set-up or maintenance. Since completed in 2004, it has been raced all over the southwest - Sandia, La Junta, Pueblo, PPIR, PIR, and Firebird. It was built to conform to SCCA ITB regs but has only been used as a Vintage club racer. Although it is a '73, all specifications conform to the 1972 GCR so most clubs will allow it in Vintage B Sedan. The following [partial] list only highlights the expensive stuff: Engine re-build - [parts and machine work only] = $1300+. Suspension parts - [Bilstein's with coil-overs and shortened struts, competition springs, camber plates, F&R sway bars] = $1700+. Autopower roll cage - [6pt with door bars]. = $900 +. Fuelsafe 12 gal. aluminum fuel cell. = $700 +. Ignition - MSD 6AL, Pertronix, re-built/re-curved distributor, MSD wires, = $700+. Interior - Seats [Ultra-Shield drivers, Kirkey pass.], Personal steering wheel with removable hub kit, Wink mirror, Simpson belts, Autometer gauges, etc. = $1100+. Exhaust - Header, 2" pipe and Supertrapp = $900. + Cooling - Hi-flow radiator, oil cooler, remote filter, lines, hoses, etc. = $600+.
Built from a straight and solid driver. Completed 2004 and last raced at Pikes Peak Int. October 2008. No mechanical DNFs ever. Owner has moved up to a Formula Ford.
