Asking $7000 obo (the wheels alone cost more than that!)
This was a drag car that I took apart and replaced all suspension components. The plan was to LS1/T56 swap the car, but life gets in the way and I'm moving this summer to Austin. The plan was to take this car to road courses, so the components were selected for that.

Interior is stripped, but I could include the carpet and panels that I have around in porno red (Also have a dyed black interior panel set I believe..). No seats.

The outside was recently repainted and is a pretty good job. I may end up having someone finish the project though - so if you know anyone that does good work and is reasonably priced - let me know!

It basically has a Maximum Motorsports Max Grip package which is $4800 new and it was FURTHER upgraded with:
Maximum Motorsports race valved struts (MM3) and uprated Hypercoil springs to match
MM Upper shock mounts: Fronts: 450lb, 10", 2.5 diameter; Rear: 350lb, 8", 2.25 diameter.
Maximum Motorsports heavy duty torque arm (main tube and crossmember)

Don't know your situation, but Austin is a phenomenal place to have a sports car. Year round good weather, and beautiful twisty roads in all directions.

Put a stock motor and trans in it and drive it daily. I see stock used motors on c-list for $500 all day long here.

Besides, Texas is very fond of foxbody cars. You may be able to make money by selling it here.

Just my $.02
