Best time in 2017 at Bandimere was 10.85 in the quarter mile. 5800 foot altitude. In Tulsa (636 ft altitude) it ran 10.5 ….. including the wheel stand…………..I have the Bandimere track tickets to prove it.

Along with the car I have some extra (used but serviceable) tires.
The appraiser was Auto Appraisal Network completed in November 2015, and it will be given to the new owner.

Last winter the car was almost completely torn down, brakes re-done, axle bearings replaced, all fluids replaced, new blue indoor outdoor carpet inside. Some gauges were upgraded, bottom line is it was thoroughly checked out.

After 33 runs in 2017 the engine and transmission didn’t use or leak any oil ! That means after all those runs exceeding 100 mph (top speed 125 mph) no oil was used, just fun in the sun at Bandimere ! Also, this car is a welcomed respected member of the VDRA (Vintage Drag Racing Association), see Facebook for details. Also see https://coloradooutlawgassers.com/”
