Vehicle Overview

This is a full race road racer that I have developed and modified since I bought her new in 1970. Have been running a 2.3 Ford SOHC "Lima" with Esslinger and Race Engineering gear plus a pair of 50 DCO Webers. Transmission is a modified and strengthened T5 along with a Winters Mini Quick Change diff. Gold Star clutch, Tilton hydraulic relaese bearing, all Wilwood brakes, Electromotive XR1 ignition. 3 Link rear suspension with AFCO coilovers, adjustable Panhard and sway bar. Custom MacPhearson strut , control arms and sway bar system, forward strut rod ( Camber adjustment)

Future Plans

Now into planning stages to run a 2.3 Ecoboost engine, intercooler and mild tune. Now in process of ordering a Quicktime bellhousing for use with a T5 transmission modfied and strengthened for 400+ HP. Going from 13" x7" wheels to 15" x 7" or 8" with Hossier slicks. Also plan on larger rear calipers and possibly rotors. Designing a full aero package to be built inhouse.
