This car started off as an incredibly straight survivor car. The six cylinder has been replaced by a new LS2 engine that is dyno proven for 650HP.

It has a set of newly developed 2″ tube headers from Dynatech and the just released Front Runner drive system from Vintage Air. The fuel, ignition, and transmission electronics are controlled by a Big Stuff 3 EFI system and MSD electronic ignition.

The transmission is a ZF 6 Speed .

The wheels are a 3 piece “classic” series from CCW in a 18×11 with a 6.75 backspace on the rear and a 18×8 with a 5.5” backspace on the front. The tires are 335/30-18 on the rear and 245/40-18 on the front.
