Now considering trading this car or roller for a decent trailer towing pickup. Prefer a 3/4 ton. But a long bed, or extended cab, or crew cab 1/2 ton will do. Prefer something like a GMC 2500HD, or a Hemi powered Ram. No Chevies or diesels please. Anyone interested, let me know what you have to trade. Above Added: Thu October 20, 2016, 9:18 am EST


I haven't been able to come up with the finances to race this car on a regular basis. So, I'm gonna sell it (or trade), and rig up a street/strip car I can drive everyday.

This car has no title & is for racing only. The body is not clean, by street standards, but adequate for local bracket racing. I built it as a sort of "nostalgia bracket racer", to look very similar to the 1st gens my wife raced back in the '70's & 80's, complete with "hot rod black" paint, lettering, and racing decals.

It has a glass hood with an old style flat top snorkle scoop. The body had some rust, so some of the floor & trunk pan was replaced with sheet metal. It has 6-point roll bars, frame connectors & slapper bars, new master & front brake cylinders, new fuel cell, two fresh 800cca 34/78 dual terminal batts, shift light tach, drag seat & belts.

In the engine compartment is a cheap alum rad, forged rod 455/6x-8 heads, 292 Comp cam/Rhoads lifters, 1.52 CC roller tip rockers, Torker 2, 750 vac Holley, HEI with DUI cap/coil & MSD rev limiter module, RobbMc 1100hp fuel pump, Flowkooler water pump, flex fan, no shroud, new Summit mini starter, 3-tube headers with collector extensions, manual steering, no alt.

Bolted to the engine is a built TH400/10" converter/B&M ratchet shifter. Has a new PST driveshaft, a 12-bolt rear with 4.10 gears & a mini-spool, 4 old style solid center Centerline wheels, with small tires on the front and good 10.8" Phoenix slicks on the rear. Has 1/2" alum fuel line from cell to the front pump.

Haven't been able to take it to the track yet, but it should run easy mid 7's or a bit quicker, on our local 1/8 mile track. That should be high 11's on a 1/4 mile track. It's just a footbraker (no tranny brake), but should run about 1.60, 60 foot times.

I can supply lots of pics, if anybody is interested. The asking price & trading value is $10k, OR less engine/trans/converter $5k. If that's still too high to make a sale, I'll keep the 12-bolt & driveshaft and sell the rest for $3500. Will also keep the tires/wheels & knock off another $500. Hey, this is a good deal for somebody who wants to get into bracket racing cheap, with a '68 Bird.

Would make a great starter car, for a beginner. I'd put in a mild 400/glide. That would slow things down a bit, and simplify , by getting better traction, and only having 1 shift to make. Hey, just a side thought.

I'm located in North central Louisiana. Will help load it onto a car hauler, for shipping. I had a car shipped here from Kansas, back in 2008. Cost was about $550. Don't know if shipping costs have risen or not, since fuel is cheaper now. ?
