Comments: the alternator had to be moved to the lower left and a bracket made that attached to the fuel pump. A reservoir tank was made for the radiator to handle cooling issues. The transmission housing is only 3 inches off the ground and the air cleaner rubs the hood. The motor has no fan mounted to it and a manually-switched electric fan was added to the front of the radiator. During High RPM's the stock electric fuel pump can't keep up with demand. This car still has the original paint, soft top and interior. It was my very first car; I bought it when I was 15 in 1977.
