History
Was built for weekend bracket racing. Project was started in 07 by a 67 year young racer. Started out with 383 and NOS. Best run was 10.41. Not sure why he quit. He built a new 406 for it, left everything else, and put it back on the street. I found it on Craig's List, and it was only an hour away. After several emails and 1 road trip, it now belongs to me.
I have started to make my changes. They are. Changed 3rd member to posi and 3.00 gears, took NOS out, planning on tacking out the fuel cell, put mechanical fuel pump in. I am going to pick up a stock hood for it.
