The car carries the cross of peace insignia , in honor of Jan, and includes the following: completely and recently restored by original builder roller chassis with 355 c.i. USAC engine and many spares including wheels, gears, shocks, torsion bars,  brake caliper, tires ( used & several new), etc.  Winters 4.86 rear end, new Davis alum radiator, KSE power steering, new Hilborn fuel pump, etc. The race car is available as a turnkey car, race ready, and tested after just one Vintage event for testing and running the engine!  located in Las Vegas, NV gfbhome@hotmail.com.  George
