The Car starts easily and runs very wellvery fastvery loudNOTE-YOU WILL BE NOTICED IN THIS CARso get used to it.
The car lived in So. Cal most of it's life and had some track timeI have not tracked the car-only driven on road and to shows.
The car rides fairly hard with the Goodyears as it shouldalso it does not like to sit in traffic-it would prefer to get out on the road and run like hell!
I have enjoyed this car a great deal but I have another project to complete so this baby must head on down the road
Easily registered in CA (!!), likes high octane or av gas if you can find it and is full of Brad Penn Oildecals can come off easily.
For full disclosurethere is a small chip in the windshield, numerous sm rock/road chips-none large-none an issue, horn does not work-it's there but has a tear in the diaphragm-we did get it to sound and it is very loud-will need repairing
Will include the BFG Banner, BFG poster and Magazine.
I would change the tires if you are going to drive it on the road more than track-they ride too hard and feel every bump-there are lots of good tires out there-but don't get rid of the Goodyear Billboards-they are really big money now as they are no longer made-nothing looks as good-or rides as hard(!)also think of joining a Cobra Club-they can be huge help with any issues
No trades-no knuckleheadsSerious buyers only ok?but ask your smart questionshappy to take more photos if you need them-but let's not waste timeyou should have some experience with racing cars to drive this carit is fast and you can get in trouble quicklyso check in with yourselfthis is no play toy$ 500.00 deposit immediately upon close of auctionBALANCE TO BE PAID (paypal payment for deposit only) WITH WIRE TRANSFER OR CERTIFIED BANK CHECK (or cash) for balancebalance to be paid within 3 days or deposit will be forfeitedcar will be released only after funds are proven and legit. I would recommend that the car be sent via 'Intercity' -they brought it to me and I like them-cost will of course be yours but I insist that this be moved in a closed trailer.
Thanks for looking and ask your questions NOTE:Car is happily registered in CA
