There's rollers, and then there's rollers. Pictures are kinda crappy, I'd say you would have to see it in person to decide. From the description, it sounds like it's been stripped pretty far down, so it might take a lot of work and $$ to re-fit all of the stuff you'd want on the street. (I'm assuming you want this for a streeter...)

yeah, it would be a "Street" car in the sense that I would want to drive it on the street every once in a while and still be able to drive it to the track.

If the work was done right, that's a good deal. If it's a redneck fab job, you might spend all your time correcting shortcuts. So he'll take $1500 for just the roller? The ad mentions engine/trans. Go see it...take some better pictures. Might want to bring cash and a trailer too just in case. :):)

another thing that was brought to my attention about rollers, is that many times, a drag roller might be a botch job and not drive straight etc.

Unless you know who did the work and trust them alot, this is a crapshoot.

Good Luck!
