It runs real well, very quick reving, awesome 1k rpm idle.  TH350, B&M crate trans with some upgrades, full manual valve body, 4k converter.  31 spline, 4.56 geared, spooled 9" ford rear.

Wheels and Tires: Weld draglites & stickey Mickey's
Body & Paint: IROC Teal green with blacked out trim. mopar 6 pack bolt on scoop. lots of nicks, scratches, dings. As per the wife's wishes it will be red (maybe candy apple over fine gold flake?) and sport a 4" cowl hood eventually. steel hinged hood. Glass lift off deck lid.
Interioir: black and gray. racing buckets that will soon be swapped out for a 60/40 split bench (that's "fat man friendly") door bars of the 8pt bar will be hinged with swing outs. 1 off door pannels and head liner. Full dynamatted floor full carpet. Fully finished trunk. Tiny 8gal fuel cell that will be swapped out for a larger one soon.
