Please – serious, respectful buyers only.
I do not have the time or the patience for looky-loos wasting my time.
Please note, this is not a perfect show car.
It is a quick drag-racer built to run, but is also quite streetable.
There are chips and dings and imperfections here and there, original side glass is de-laminating and could use to be replaced, but all in all it’s an awesome car.
It was street-driven as a Street Rod for years before being restored to it’s gasser roots.
I have owned this car for 24 years and it’s tough to sell, so act now before I change my mind.
