Runs and drives , got it for 1,500 owner couldn't figure out the fuel pump problem 

 


You have any plans for it?


This winter I'm going to come up with a rear mounted turbo setup and a cam . At 10 psi of boost I should get about 400hp and a shit ton of torque thanks to the factory Tuned port fuel Injection

Very cool.


even upgraded and rebuilt the brake calipers


rebuilding the rear wheel bearings was an absolute pain in the ass . But saved a lot of money doing them myself

Just out of curiosity In the spring time I'm gonna take it up to the drag strip and see what it does in the 1/4 mile 


the day my dad bought it

Edit


and now just a few hours ago. The louvers in the hood are functional. Didn't want to do it , but had serious heat issues . Also had to get some special paint from Germany that was 150.00 dollars for 8 ounces for the exhaust headers to help with heat .
