History and Information
The car was purchased RHD and registered in Australia.

 From there I modified the car and competed in circuit sprints and Tarmac rallies. After damaging the car during an event I decided to give the car a full rebuild and replicate the way the cars were raced back in the late 60's early 70's. I based the rebuild on the very succesful 1969 L88 corvette race cars. The rebuild took approximately 2 years to complete and I currently use the car for Historic Sprints and Regularity events. The car is still street registered and its a really great car to drive on the track and I always look forward to taking it out and driving it hard.
