Gonna change the look a lot once you lower it. Good advice on the hose mod! I did the bmr springs/hose mod and my stance is perfect. Make sure you post pics

Nice find! Really liking it.... Wish I could find something like this at a good price. Love these cars, good buy!

The lowering springs will make it look 10x better.

Definitely a great find. Tried to buy one that was actually raced, even at Watkins Glen but guy just wouldn't budge on price. Can't wait to see finished pics

Supposed to be nice this Friday... Crossing fingers that I can get it done then.

Jawz…. So you were trying to buy a 1LE? This car is pretty nimble "as is".. Should ride on rails w the Strano's.. Removed the spare tire and all of that to reduce weight even more. In all of the years I have bought and sold 4th gen fbods.. I have never come across a 1LE... This one was a fluke.. I have always been fond of the 96-97 BTM cars. When I saw this one in a barn w only 28K miles I was intrigued.. When I asked him to send me the RPO codes and I saw the 1LE... I knew that I had to have it. It is truly a very solid car!

So, the one you were looking at... How many miles? color? What was he asking?

One I wanted was a 94 I believe. From PA. Had around 70K,, was professionally raced and maintenance kept like a NASCAR. Had small cage and a bulletproof suspension built by original owner himself. He wanted 9,, I had 7,,,wouldn't budge! The more I see yours the more I absolutely love it. That car definitely fell into the right hands(as I can tell from before/after engine bay pics&#128513. Hope you get to enjoy it as driving them is much better than parking,,even as much as we want them to stay perfect. Sold a low mile, tastefully modded, beautiful car to buy a higher mile SS that I'm not scared to drive and it's been best thing I've done lately lol
