    The other 'Red victor'

    Hi, This is my project that is about 8 years in the making, due to other things that have got in the way (e.g life).
    This car has a bit of a history apparently, it once belonged to Kevin scott, a mate of andy frost, and was once known around the black country driving along with red victor 1 and a red fd estate belonging to a guy named Geoff.
    I bought the car back in november 2003 off a guy named sean toole, who had bought it from a guy named Damian halliwell who once ran the car in the northern street car challenge.
    The car ran ventora running gear and a 305ci chevy motor, and came 2 doored (as per red victor 1/2), and was also featured in july 1996 issue of street machine in the readers rides section.
    The car has been steadily worked on over the last 8 years, in between rebuilding my house and now has many subtle mods such as retuned back to a four door, frenched rear lights, fuel filler cap moved to rear panel, narrowed ventor axle, deepened rear inner arches to make room for the planned 9x17 cragar pro street wheels, 3 series bmw rear arches, exhaust cut outs in rear valance,hole cut out of centre of the bonnet to make room for the edelbrock triyx tunnel ram and twin four barrel carbs, the front end has been replaced by an hb viva to tuck the cragars under the arches.
    The car will be finished with a a full performance engine upgrade with nitrous, 6 point roll cage,black paint, black leather interior, as for when, that remains to be seen.
    cheers


    The car as i bought it from sean back in 2003.






    The car as it is now.

    Red coloured Victor would be a better title,if it was red of course.....
    Red Victor is my trade mark.
    I remember the car well. Good luck with the build.
