Lots of Extras/ Spares:
-New Tail Pipes (Not on now, has turn downs)
-Set of Holley Long tube headers
-4 speed trans (is leaky)... not top loader. It's out of a Ranger and has super long 3rd gear (allegedly good for up to 350HP, ran with another 5.0 in solo and had good success). With necessary aftermarket bell housing.
-Everything I replaced new that was still usable as a back up I saved.
-(2) Sets of GT40 upper/lower intake and head setups (had big plans)
-Extra 5.0 engine (ran solo events) that is still in car but can be pulled for extra $500 (has about 100 Solo hours on it and had been to MidOhio twice). Bottom end is pro built.
-Stock rear end (complete set up).
-Car was built for Champ Car (we have built several cars for this series and it is a blast!) platform so most new parts are stock. There are a few racey bits but at least half are stock (can provide further details to interested parties).
-The one race it has been through was more like a shake down weekend (we missed the shake down track time because of last minute water pump explosion). We got all problems sorted out in race. Unfortunately near the end of the weekend the starter went out. It was replaced incorrectly and as a result took some teeth from the fly wheel. As you could imagine this caused an issue with engine balance and now above 4000 rpm there is a vibration. Engine and trans still very strong. Needs flywheel.
As much time as I have spent on this car I refuse to crawl under it one more time, so I lowered the asking price.
-Car had some Ohio Rot that was all repaired during the build process.
-Dash is unfinished, i.e. there is no dash
-Rear hatch needs replaced, is stock and old/rotted
Car has title and is currently registered as historic with Ohio.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out.
It is a fun ride! Everything worked out great in the end. Has great potential and with the GT40 setups will be a blast to drive.
