It does kinda look like a Big Daddy Roth kinda car lol. The rear wheels and tires are too big for the car they look over size to say the least but thats what the customer wanted:)

This one will be driven it has awesome susp and brakes and a 454c.i small block F.I makes 600h.p and a 5-speed and the rear gear is 4.11 with a Pro Street heavy duty posi so yes it will get some use. He plans to take it to Pavilions and cars and coffee and caffeine when its all done. It needs paint so it still be a few months then it be super hot so he may not drive it much tell it starts cooling down again.

Love the 80's nose and tail on the vert body :thumbs What motor ???

Its a Motown 454c.i small block alum heads roller cam 10.5 to 1 has old ASM F.I on it runs good for now he might have me put a blower on it:) Shore has enough tire for a blower you could side step the clutch at 6k and probably not spin to bad lol.

The car really is a 80 it had a vert kit done on it years ago. It has a soft top but with the tubs and roll bar it wont fit now so its just going to be open all the time. He does not mind he has 15 other cars so not like hes worried about when it rains lol.
