As you can see from pics, licensed in IL. I moved to NJ 2 years ago (still go back and forth), car has been stored heated indoors for past two years in Chicago, finally shipped out to NJ last month (though originally was from Oregon, no rust). Intended to build/finish with my son but just no space/time since moved so decided to put for sale to gauge interest. Its a mean looking car with beast of a motor. I still consider it a project car, will be really sweet with a bit of effort. Runs and drives just been sitting for quite some time, interior still a bit rough, steering column needs work (needs C-clip replaced, I can provide), and likely could use finishing paint job (though the stealth flat black has grown on me). Happy to discuss additional details if interested. Thanks for looking. Please post inquiries to Ebay advertisement, in this way others can also view the responses. Also, vehicle for sale locally as well, thus reserve right to end auction early should another buyer purchase prior to end of auction. Thanks!

Revision (7/2/16): Per request I have added several additional photos of requested angles/positions (additional engine bay, ceiling, interior, tire close-ups etc). Also, I havejust uploaded requested video clips to YouTube that should appear below (FYI, I had to install latest Adobe upgrade to view, but my computer 3 yrs old). These videos were shot at angle to view exhaust exit from above while idling and when revving (those are my son's red sneakers playing camera man). These were shot withiPhone, I actually feel turned out better than expected but not of professional quality by any means. Regardless, as you can see/hear has steady idle, nice growl, sounds great and no smoke or visible emission of any kind from the muffler. I also include direct url listings below in case these don't play on the ebay site.




Revision (7/3/16): Per request, I am adding information below provided to me by the initial engine builder/owner. I have transcribed this verbatim from his notes provided to me, but I unlike most details provided above, I have not been able to independentverify (i.e. I have never dismantled motor to confirm but I suspect all is as described).
