It is a blank canvas and about to burn a huge hole in the already depleted bank account... lol.
My first choice was to go for a European classic car race, however when I went over the full list of what's allowed and what's not... it's not financially viable to do it now.
Almost all the stuff it needs for it is what I had on the car over 10 years ago....
I'm going for a modern track car look.
To give you a run down of the overall look of the car:
6 points roll cage.
two racing buckets (already have them)
A couple of pictures when I was fitting them a while back (they are FIA including the harness)
The interior will be back to bare metal (painted of course, maybe some sort of grey).
Racepack UDX dash.
Momo steering, quick release.
Full lexan side and rear windows.
For the outside, it will still have the original look, nothing crazy in terms of aerodynamics (as in monster rear wings or thing like this.....)
For the wheels, I'm getting a set of 16" Vintage Wheel Works 48 with track day (but still road legal) tyres.
Wanted a set of Grab-A-Trak Race Wheels but they don't seem to have them in 16".
A full set of the biggest break I can fit behind the 16" wheels.
TCP manual rack (to be purchased, sold my Randall power rack).
Eaton Detroit Truetrack, will keep the current gears of 3.55/1
Will also keep my 4 links rear Heidts system but change the coil overs for some QA1 ones.
Will semi upgrade the front with coil overs (the ones which replace the stock shocks, not the full on monty ones).
For the engine, I will de-stroke my 342 to 289, the current heads are Dart pro1, solid lifters etc...
Holley Terminator EFI (already have it)
Lightweight flywheel, lightweight clutch (Centerforce LM series), scatter shield.
Engine bay will be some sort of white/cream to be able to see any leaks easily.
The car will have a very limited road use, to go to a track and back really with the odd runs on public roads to take friends about.... so I don't care much if this engine is not "street" friendly.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot, but I hope you can let your imagination run as to what the car will look like...
As for the paint, it will be red (haven't picked the right shade yet)
Needless to say that the build won't happen over night ...
