Come take a look.

Tried the car out this weekend at La Junta - 8th lap in was my best - 56 sec flat vs a mid 53 lap record. I thought that sounded pretty good for starters. But the car was slower next session, running rough and down on power. A lot of digging before the race showed all to be in good order. It sounded perfect in the pits. Well..................

Lap one turn one - we see the racing gods and I park it. Car now has a nice Justice head/valve train/RFD manifold carb. A good Swift pan, good pistons, flywheel and clutch, distributor. But........ we need everything in between - lost two rods - I assume something happened while it sat so long - probably will never know. Anyway - I will leave the ad up but I am shopping for a pro built short block or motor needing freshening.

I will take my time and find a good one - there seems to be a lot of 30 year old motors popping up with all the interest in the 50th. I want a good piece for the car - not just a motor.

I did get a call tonight asking what I would sell it for "as is" - I quoted $9,900

Drop me a note if you have a lead on a donor motor, short block or if you are interested as is?

Still a rough day at the track is better than most days anywhere else - no regrets!

Took a deposit from a great guy with a motor!

Here is a quick clip from La Junta first practice - last laps of the session. Best was a 56 flat.
