The car benefits from newer paint in an eye-catching custom color scheme, but like most dragsters with “character,” has its share of slight runs, bubbles, touch-ups and other imperfections upon close examination.  The chrome is also of driver quality with minor imperfections.  A few other items of note are that the car does not have heat, the clock does not work, the speedometer is inaccurate, and the power windows operate slowly.  There is also a crack in the driver’s side window.  The car currently needs a new flywheel installed.  Total mileage is unknown.

Last raced about 20 years ago, this car was a “barn find” in Geneva, Ohio.  Since his acquisition about three years ago, the most recent owner undertook its mechanical and cosmetic updating, and has found it to be very reliable and enjoyable on the highway and back roads alike.

Will selll powertrain and body separately if desired.  Please inquire.

If an excellent running and driving dragster with plenty of nostalgic flair is what you desire, this is the car for you!
