FFR42xxK was a donor build but almost all of the donor parts have been replaced. It is titled in Maryland as a 1965 Fact. The original build was to be for a street car. That evolved over the years to one more focused on local AutoX while keeping street-ability. Almost everything from the donor was replaced during incremental upgrades. See the equipment list below. The car was built for a tall driver with Breeze seats tracks, riser blocks under the steering column, and the pedals adjusted to provide the most room possible. It has 14,058 miles on the odometer, with around 3,500 mile on new engine and trans.
Issues: The car has an idle problem; it will not hold a steady idle. It will either hunt, sweeping wider and wider or it will simple fall to zero and stall. The tires are getting old and will need to be replaced fairly soon, good tread, just old. The seats are the original FFR Street performers and have faded and are worn a bit. The top is worn. The gauges are the donor conversion set, they work but are not that attractive. These items have been factored into the sale price, so the price is firm.
I have been driving it less and less the past couple of years and now my back and my knees will not let me lean over the car to do the work needed to fix it. I do have a replacement dash in the works with some gauges, and new vinyl for the soft-top, both are included.
