Pretty sure “roller” means no engine, especially at that price. Drop in a nice small or big block engine and have a fun track day car and vintage race it too. Wish I had room for it. GLWTS

Mark....It could possibly be sold as a turn key set up, but certainly not at that price. If you are serious about the car, contact Ralph at the info provided and see what can be worked out.

It can participate in any Vintage event for large bore or wings and slicks.....SOVREN( the Society Of Vintage Racing ENthusiasts ) , SVRA ( Sportscar Vintage Racing Association ) etc. The Car was extremely competetive when raced in Group 3 and Group 7b in SOVREN. Tire selection( treaded vs slicks) opens up the ability to run in several different classes. Tech requires fuel cell/safety equipment etc. Car has passed tech every time, with the most recent events in summer of 2018. This Car will qualify in any Vintage club across the country. Each club designates the vehicle class according to year/engine size/tires.
