pull out that rat motor junk and drop in a good ford engine and it would make a cool drag car. I wonder how much he would want for it without the engine?

Real race cars don't have alternators....they recharge the battery between rounds and run off it.

even though mine runs pretty good - keep the fingers crossed - i've also considered putting a small block in, because, that's what ive got hanging out, parts cost are more reasonable - alot, just seems like more options, and power a little easier to come by, oh did i mention it's a chev : lol ,i like the car body style, more than i do the inter-working of what ford put together

There is no support going to the front of the car. That frame will bend like a wet noodle the first time you get that front end off the ground.. There is a lot of work that is still needed to get this one ready for the track...Good luck with this for whoever buys it.....Rich

I would like to graft that steering setup onto my car....but it looks like it moves the framerails in wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too far.
