My uncle (John Henry) bought the original car from a business client, and spent 15 years, a bunch of bucks, and a lot of love on it. 9 years before it was on the road. A complete nuts n bolts rebuild. Sadly, he passed away in 2009 rather suddenly. He had a lot of fun driving it - enjoying it - not necessarily babying it. I bought it from my aunt to keep in the family, fix up a few things on it, and make it pretty. Not sure that I'll ever race her or have her win a beauty contest, but I'm going to work on her towards doing at least one of them! She's got lots of goodies but needing a ground-up tune to address engine and suspension quirks. He didn't have a good log of work done so I'm putting together the pieces of the puzzle. I'll start a journal soon, but the major mods are:
- Heritage body kit, roll bar, gas strut lift kits
- 1800cc block (18V672Z), over-bored 30 thou
- Ford T-9 5-speed gearbox, aluminum flywheel
- Pertronix FlameThrower coil & distributor, master battery kill switch
- Aluminum performance head, roller rockers, Crane performance road cam
- HS6 1 3/4" twin SU carbs, K&N filters, inertia fuel kill
- Pace Setter high-flow manifold, custom 2" exhaust to Magnaflow
- Adjustable fast road coil-overs (front), Anti-tramp bars (rear)
- MiniLite rims, X-drilled and slotted rotors w/ oversize pads
