Originally a gasser all the suspension parts are correct to the original gasser as it was raced It has been redone once in 1995 only to freshen paint and interior. Originally built as the Smurfmobile it was used for many public appearances and shown around the Midwest. When redone in 95 it continued to be a favorite at many shows and cruise-ins.
