    I haven’t started any of the chassis work on my black car, been mainly working on the systems.
    Came across a local car for sale that has most all of the work done. Looked at it last night and bought the car.
    The guy mainly street raced the car, and with a 9.2 deck Windsor, nitrous, and C4 combo it ran in the high 8 second range. It hooks really well on 10.5/28 slicks with 1.2 60 foots.
    Already had the AJE setup with fox struts and spindles, and the exact CalTrac setup I have for the black car.
    Here are a few teaser pictures, the motor and trans are coming out this weekend, and should have the car this week.

    I dont know how much you paid for the car but it has a lot invested in it already, carbon fiber hood and trunk lid with spoiler, sweet . What are your plan for the car ?

    Initially a 338ci, Progressive NOS, and C4. I had options as to what I wanted with the car. I chose to go with the stock grabber trunk and 1/4 extensions, and flat hood that were painted with the car. The car is already really light, and don’t think the carbon stuff is required. Ton of room in the engine bay with that front suspension.

    I would like to build a big windsor in the future.

    I am happy with what I gave for the car. Rust free, no accidents, and very nice workmanship on all the chassis work. Started life as a 73 grabber.

    Very cool car! I have most of an AJE kit to I stall in mine. I'd probably be better off buying a built roller.

    Will be looking to sell my brand new setup in the near future. AJE kit for SBF, Viking adjustable struts, AJE shock towers, fox spindles, and aerospace 4 piston pro street front brakes.

    I need coilovers with struts and brakes. Let me know if you want to separate. I might be interested.

    Good looking car. I’ve talked with the original owner a few times on Instagram. Did he say what he’s building now?

    He has a really nice looking 68' Dart that will be a small tire car as well.

    I wish I could find a sweet deal on a roller like that. Seems like when I find a Nice Maverick for sale it's 10k and stock.....

    Pulled the scoop off and did away with the front end black out treatment. Back to more stock looking.

    Not sure how much the spoiler is helping, being setup for 1/8 mile. Think I will remove that as well.

    Do you want to part with the scoop?
