Thanks guys!! I dont have any other pics just yet. Been tinkering on it trying to get ready to race. Its a round tube chassis with an alky breathing small block in it. Hopefully I will know what it runs this weekend

I did make a video of it running in the garage...

This will be the newest addition to the camp for us. It will be a 355 roller motor, 750 APD alky carb getting fuel from Magnafuel 275, 1.76 glide from Vickers Transmission and has a 9 inch rear with 4.10 gear. Converter will be 5800 8 inch from Abruzzi. Tires are Hoosier 30x9. Truck will keep the leaf spring to start. If it wheel hops or is too much for the leaf, the provisions to go coil over and ladder bar are there. Would like to upgrade to a full spool and axles from Moser but I will see if these hold up, too.

Hoping to run some box and no box stuff with it. Not sure of the weight of the truck. Bed has had weight removed, interior has had weight removed and the inner fenders are gone. Thinking this should be a 11.40-11.50 player.

'Sinister in Black'
Is that a 'stealth' paint ?!

If by stealth you mean does it hide how bad the body is? Then yes. :lol: :lol:

I like the new look Curtis. The new paint and wheels look good together.

Thanks Beast.

Lively, I don't know the guy but he races in no-e every time the gate is open. I don't know anything about the car though. Heck, I don't even know what it is. LOL Here are some pics.
