car originally ran in the early 90s, 454 big block chevy linked to a th400 with a bit of nos, there a few gaps in its history but it ended up with John Claydon, my brother bought off John but didn't realy do a lot to it and it sat in the lok n store for many years, couldnt see it go to waste so I bought it from my brother and have started to put it back together as it was in the 90s, it was featured in the1992 issue of custom car, a few pics
