Build thread and history can be found here.

https://ls1tech.com/forums/forced-in...er-beware.html


This was built to be a quarter mile drag car. Ride quality reflects this. I rewired the brake lights, signals, headlights to make it "Street legal". I just got it running and have not had it to the track or tuned it yet. Working to get it tagged at the moment. Cruises fine, but I wouldn't want to drive it cross country or anything.

This is not a car for a big/tall guy. I'm 6'4" 220lbs and it's a chore for me to get in and out/drive. There is no room to move the seat back farther. The seat is up against the wheel tub sheet metal and bolted to the floor now. I barely fit.

This is a current work in progress so I'll update the FS AD as I go.

Sure I’d ship at the buyers expense. I’d suggest taking a look at it in person. I bought the car originally looking at pictures alone and it was a big mistake. Car looks great don’t get me wrong, but it’s no show car and rides like a race car.

BUMP. It's "street legal".

Now has working headlights (bright and standard beams). New headlight harness with 2 30a relays. Officially tagged and passed out of state vehicle inspection. (no stolen parts) Clean/clear KS title in my name.

I am sorry that you got taken like you did. I was close to buying the car myself, but couldn't make it into my schedule. I am glad to see you got it running well though. In your alternate thread you mentioned what work was left, how much of that is 100% necessary? I am looking for a street/strip car that looks good from 10ft. I am ok with somewhat of a project, but it has to be solid mechanically.

That’s a tough question and depends on what the owner thinks is necessary/wants.

Personally if I were going to drive it on the street I’d want softer suspension, replace all the rubber in the front end, better seat, headliner replaced, interior “freshened”, sound deadening, gauge lighting, minor body work on hood (or new glass hood), tint, and brakes all around.

For a mainly drag setup... Front end "freshen", brakes, tune. Should be good to go.

Has a new master cylinder and accum. Brake lines look good. I'd just replace the calipers/discs/pads/shoes on drums.

Great looking car. Wish I was on the Mainland sooner than 2016, I would definitely pick it up.

Good luck with the sale.

It starts nice and cruises around fine.
