Default 1966 Coupe Drag Car

Old NCCC built for autocross and drags and later in life (90's) it set a couple of national records. Clean, mostly original body(built from street car), Big motor ,502+ range, good components like Toms 4:56 swingaxel rearend, Bodix, etc Awesome car to run RPA in NCCC or bracket killer at 9.90

Any interest? at $20,000 I'll post up some pics soon.

Has VIN tag and title

OK!!! My bad...not!....took me a minute (4 days) to find these old pics. Apparently that is not quite fast enough for some??

I bought the car about 10 years ago and it is in climate controlled storage with my other toys. I have personally known the car since 1982. Currently looks exactly like pic of car in drag trim.
Other pic is from its autocross days. Set FTD at National Convention Topeka late 90's
Was NCCC RPA National drag holder at one time at 9.77 ! Still has same setup.

(I'm also putting, Blue Thunder, my 73 Current National drag record holder up for sale in C3 section. 9.01 record...will go faster)

Default more pics

More pics from storage
Just remembered when we stored it we drained fuel cell and fuel lines best we could
For a few years I would keep the batteries charged and crank the motor over every so often. Lost interest a couple of years ago so I;m sure it needs springs, gaskets, etc to fire....must do because components are all top of line/expensive
Lots of interest so lets get this car deal done sooner than later!
