This car was an automatic, but was converted to a manual 4 on the floor. It had a racing engine and was raced in the 1/4 mile. Racing engine was blown. It now has a new 383 Stroker with less than a 1000 miles. There are a lot of high end components. It rides great and is very fast.

Offset upper control arm shaft 68-72 GTO. 1 3/8 front and rear sway bars. 16" x 4 3/4 back spacing centerline billet hammers. MSD 6A ignition kit for GM H.E.I. Melling high volume oil pump. HVX Thrush mufflers. And more.
