I have included some pictures of the car's rocker panels and running gear. This is not a restored car, but rather a good driver, with rebuilt running gear,that has extensive race history. It has a great patina, that I feelmakes the car a great piece of history. It garners a lot of attention wherever it goes.Log book, Heritage certificate and some race programs/memorabilia included in sale. Car has spent the majority of it's life in Texas and California, and so has avoided the usual rust issues.
