The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the body, the battery is in good order and the engine bay is exceptionally tidy. This pony rolls on Kumho Power Star radials, size 165/80R15 in front and Mickey Thompson racing tires, size 26x10.50/15 in back. Each tire is mounted on a Centerline Drag Lite wheel. The wheels are in excellent condition while the tires are in very good order. The suspension has been rebuilt with new, two-inch drop axles in the front and de-arched springs in the back.
