11.8:1 CR
Weber 45 DCOE carbs
9k rpm redline
~175whp
<2000lbs

One of the rowdiest cars I have ever driven, an absolute riot.

Very clean and straight FL/NC body and interior, never wrecked, never rust.

I take it you're pretty satisfied with it then? lol

Any plans for it other than taking off the decals or whats left to take off?

Yeah it's rowdy. :) Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to start doing some of things I feel it needs, aside from last weekend I've been holding off on driving it until then.
