This is how to do it... a 383 + 5-speed, IRS, and yet it looks almost stock, not even any louvres in the top of the hood.

Superb build, I would say

On BaT, yours for... quite a lot of money.
Ends in four days.

I love this one!

I expect and hope (for the seller/builder) the price goes quite a lot higher than it is now.

Made $92k which is pretty good, especially for a car with no fuel gauge... bizarre omission... or would be a good price if you hadn't paid all the bills to get it built.

The market for modified cars is pretty small, but I think it's bigger if they still look stock.

Putting a fuel gauge in a TD/TF tank would be an interesting exercise.

My fuel gauge has always been so inaccurate that I refer to my trip odometer instead.
