The car was purchased by Steve Foster in 2012. He never raced the
car as he was unable to
pass his physical exam.
The car was purchased by its current owner in 2012 and immediately
was disassembled for a
thorough restoration. The chassis was powder coated. The engine was
completely rebuilt by a
professional builder and dynos at 750+ HP. All suspension joints
were replaced and the Brake
system was upgraded to handle the increased HP. The car has only
run 2 events since its
complete restoration and has less than 3 hours of total time on it.
