The man who built this car suffered a medical condition shortly after it was completed. It was left setting in his garage for years while he maintained hopes of one day driving it one day. When the doctors told him he would never drive again, he sold the car to me. I purchased it with about 200 miles on the odometer. I'm sharing all of the information he told me about the build in this ad.
The fuel tank was removed and replaced. All of the fluids were replaced. It was VERY LOUD, so I had sound deadenersinstalled at the tail pipes. They are adjustable and control how loud the exhaust is. I also had it detuned to make it more street friendly, it was a real handful!!! I know they put a smaller carb on it and some other things but I just can't seem to recall the details.Even after being detuned, the car is pretty scary fast. It more than gets second gear, I'm pretty sure if you stay in it the tires would smoke. I just give up at the shift, no longer at the age where it is that important.I'm not sure what rear is in it, but it has a built small block, a thumpy cam, with a built 350 turbo and it drives just fine at 60MPH.It weights approximately 3,000 pounds. This is not a good choice for a immature driver. I included a picture with the valve covers off. I put a new set of back valve covers and a new Cadillac cover on. Just wanted to point out, I believe those are roller rockers? Ithas a Heidts front end with coil-overs. That unit alone cost over $4,000 in parts. It makes the car drive so much better than any other hot rod I've ever owned. The car has a 5x4.75 bolt pattern all the way around.
The hood and rear fenders are fiberglass. The rest is all metal.There is zero rust on this car and you will not find evidence of bondo if you use a magnet on it. It is a black car, you should be able to see how straight it is in the pictures. Not perfect, but really, really nice. The gas filler has been relocated to the trunk. It takes 16 gallons filled to the absolute top.
Frankly the car has very few needs. The front windshield glass has delaminated over the years, I'm not sure what causes that to happen. I have new glass for it (included), I have just been waiting till winter to replace it because I don't want to miss any good weather days for driving. The other issue is the glass on the drivers door, something is goofed up there, it goes up but it needs a little help at about 3/4 of the way up and then it goes up again smoothly. I have not done anything about it because it's more of a quirk and I only roll the windows up when I wash the car so it has been a low priority. You can see from some of the pictures, it needs a good detailing. I'm currently working with torn rotator cuff, or it would never have gotten a chance to get that dirty. Sincerely those are the issues with the car to the best of my knowledge. It literally now has less than 1300 miles on it from when originally built.
I honestly don't know why I am not satisfied with this car. I've owned a lot of cars in my life time and I always joke that one day I'll find "the one." This has to be one of the nicest, but my search goes on...
I do not require a deposit. If you are picking the car up locally and it is not what you want for any reason, don't buy it. I will not leave you negative feedback, I want you to be excited about your purchase. If you are having it shipped, I can't offer you that, but I will work with your shipper.
I will accept wire transfer from a major banks or cash only. Vehicle nor title will leave my garage until the funds fully clear my bank.
No checks including bank teller or certified checks.
Last but not least, this car gets a lot of honks. Personally I think a thumbs up is much better than a honk, but people will honk all the time at you and that kind of catches me off guard, constantly. If you don't like the attention, save your self some money and buy a Chrysler product.
