This car has so many new parts I probably don't remember all of them. It's a 468 cu. in. 454 with a fairly hot but streetable mechanical cam/ matching top quality valve train parts. It has TRW forged 10.25 to 1 pistons, reworked factory rods with wavelock bolts, rotating assembly all balanced with a Fluidyne damper. Ported factory "049" heads. The trans is a Richmond Gear 6 speed with a duo-force clutch, aluminum Mcleod flywheel, Lakewood safety bellhousing and a H/D custom built driveshaft. Caltracs are installed and work beautifully.

All the chrome/trim/lights/lenses etc are new as well as the interior including seats recovered, new carpet/headliner/dash/speaker tray etc.

It also has an all GM 4 wheel disc setup with 12" rotors up front and a disc brake rear end out of a '79 T/A with 4 wheel disc option.

I've owned this car since 1991 when I brought it home as a basket case with no engine/trans and full of rainwater from a huge hole in the roof. It is a very reliable car that will idle around town or put a smile on your face when merging onto a freeway. I have not abused it however I did run an 11.94 one time at the drag strip with a gentle launch.
