Fully Developed And Proven Race Car With Numerous Event Wins
Extensive Spares Package – 2nd Fresh Engine (Shaver, 347ci), 16+ wheels, Braking System, Carbon Fiber Body Parts, And Much More
Serviced And Maintained to High Standards By J&L Fabricating
“Whoa, that car is fast.”
I heard this phrase verbatim at least three times when this car first arrived at the shop from local racers in the know. This car has been known to run in the top three at most tracks and events it has participated in over the last 12+ years of current ownership.
Serviced, stored, and supported trackside to high standards by J&L Fabricating out of Puyallup, WA – the car has race and service records dating back to 2005 in the folder. The race log books go back to 1995, and the verbal history is that it was a race car since the 1970s. The log books list all the great tracks and events you want to be at – Laguna Seca, Sears Point, Portland, Pacific Raceways, Coronado, Thunder Hill, Willow Springs, Road America, Fontana, Reno, and even Indianapolis. The car has run in SVRA, HMSA, SOVREN, HSR, CSRG, and VARA.
Currently fitted with a Shaver built 302ci engine (on a “Sportsman” block, new old stock), that has only had three events (8 hours) on it. Shaver fitted the engine with a new Bryant crank, Carillo Rods, JE Pistons, Manley valves, Isky retainers, valve springs, lifters, timing chain and gears. Dyno sheets show 428hp. The engine had an oil change and run-in service earlier this year while in storage.
Transmission duties are handled by the reliable Borg Warner T-10, which has proven to be robust and reliable on the track. Currently the car is fitted with a 3.73 rear end. There are also four (4) additional rear ends gear sets in the spares package to adjust for various track speeds and lengths.
Suspension features strengthened mounting and custom valved Penske shocks. Brakes currently fitted are standard Mustang rotors/calipers for compliance with the last event run (Monterey Historics), but in the spares boxes are a full Lincoln Continental braking system that the current owner strongly urges a new buyer to fit again as allowed in your sanctioning body and region.
The spares package that comes with the car is extensive and representative of a long history of racing. Here is just a small sample of major components included in the package:
347ci Engine – Shaver rebuild, fresh engine
Complete Lincoln Continental front braking system
16+ spare wheels – full sets of 7”, 8”, and 8.5” widths, plus extras
4 additional read end gear sets – for various track set ups
New clutch and flywheel assembly ready to go in
Carbon fiber body parts, painted to match – hood, front fenders, rear deck lid
Various used good race parts – driveshafts, cylinder heads, valve covers, crankshafts, leaf springs, etc.
Numerous new unused parts – axle bearings, brake seals, universal joints, wheel studs, brake rotors, calipers, hoses, belts, spark plugs, etc.
And much more….
When speaking with the current owner while preparing the car for sale, we asked a simple, but important question – “What do you love about the car on track?” His eyes lit up as he replied – “I love that the car is so neutral in handling – well to be fair, it understeers like a pig, just like all vintage race cars of that era, but it never comes around on you, never scares you. The car is very fast, and easy to go fast in. Much easier to drive than other cars I own – sort of like an old reliable pair of jeans – just god damn fun to race. One of the best things I have owned and loved over the years of playing cars.”
Car is sold on a bill of sale, comes with race log books, service invoices, race track prep/run notes, and an extensive spares package as generally described above. Please contact us for the full spares list. The car is largely race ready, but we always recommend the minimum with a race car after acquisition – have your shop or mechanic run a full safety check on all systems, flush all fluids, new tires, new harnesses, verify fire system, etc.
