FF004

I am nearing the completion of my latest work, FF004. This project was very special in that I was able to utilize an original Ray Litz built 356 engine, LSD Getrag 4 Speed Transaxle and Pre A Brakes for mechanicals.

As you can see I gave the car a very unique but functional design cue with the “Suicide” doors. The influence came from the Heini Sauter Porsche special built in 1952. The idea was for “Ease of entrance and exit at rally checkpoints.”

I recently invested in a commercial grade polishing system. This is what restorers of vintage warbird airplanes use for a mirror finish. As you can see in the photos it is working well, and this is not the final polish!

The final numbers on this build should put it at about 1130LBS with 115HP. To find out more about build options email CRunge@TheMotoringJournal.com
