The Story

I purchased this car to get into racing after I graduated from tech school. I saw the car for sale in the paddock at Road America during the Spring vintage festival and got in touch with the owner to purchase the vehicle. This year I plan to start auto crossing the car and pushing the limits of its performance more.

Current Setup

  • Wheels: 15" Knock-off (single lug) Minilite styles
  • Suspension: 2" lowering springs in front and 1" drop in the rear
  • Performance: Lightened flywheel
  • Performance: Weber 45 DCOE side draft carb
  • Performance: Headers and custom exhaust
  • Interior: Half cage, kirkey racing bucket seat, and corbeau racing harness
  • Exterior: weight reduction
