I would consider this a running & driving project car. It is reasonably well tuned and I can get in and drive it when I want to. It has its issues here and there but nothing preventing it from being enjoyed. Had a great time building this over the past year or so but it is time to move on to something else.
If you read up on the F2T you will find it is an underrated engine from the time period and produces pretty substantial torque. The stock bottom ends can hold impressive power. This car is a turbo and injectors away from 300whp and 350wtq. This would be a great Radwood car.
• Oil Pan Leaks (Not substantial but an annoyance)
• No IACV (Must give it some throttle during warmup sub 50 degrees, no big deal)
• Front End Collision (2-3 owners ago the car hit a deer, the hood and d/s fender are rough and the front bumper was replaced with an early model. Did pass PA inspection with the repairs)
• Slight Driveshaft Vibration (Highway speeds, likely needs balanced)
• No Heat, No AC (Heat would be easy to add, AC not so much)
• Manual Steering (Pretty light with the engine location)
Price is OBO.
