History Purchased by John Harris in Rhode Island around 2002 for $3500. Added IROC SS ground effects package by Crystalite Engineering. Replaced entire interior of ugly green/gray color with Royal Blue components after refinishing with SEM products. Cleaned up engine compartment over time and added chrome and other items as budget and time allowed. Used as a "daily driver" with trips to town dump in the morning, afternoon trips to Home Depot or garden center for materials, and - after a quick hose-down, drove to cruise nights most summer weekends.
IROC SS Camaro-style nose made of fiberglass with ground effects bolt-on kit. Hard bed cover by Gaylord's of California. Aluminum 15" wheels by American Racing.


Replaced Turbo 350 tranny with 200-R4 overdrive supported by G-Force crossmember.

Under the Hood
350 c.i 4-bolt main crate engine.
Edelbrock Performer intake manifold.
Edelbrook 600 cfm carb.
HEI ignition.
Replaced loud, rusty full length headers with factory stock exhaust manifolds.

Mostly stock, with addition of F-41 suspension components, corner braces, and rear anti-sway bar.
New air-shocks and springs in rear.

Wheel and Tire
15" BF Goodrich TA radials mounted on American Racing Wheels.
