My replica 289 Roadster

(1/6) > >>

I posted a thread about my 289 replica about 5 or 6 years ago but was lost in the great meltdown  :-\
A little history, This is my tribute to csx2367. I've loved this car since I first saw it cruising around No New Jersey. It was owned by Joe Angeleri who had been the original buyer. Joe owned 2367 for I believe 46 yrs. Its' presently owned by Dave Wathen. I built this myself using a Factory Five chassis and the body was made by Mr. Bruce (Bruce Chervenack). I fabricated all the aluminum sub structure, engine compartment, interior dash and glove box. The glove box door was a challenge but I'm pleased with the way it came out. And Oh yes, the trunk. I tried to replicate as closely as possible with what I had to work with. The motor is a 1965 289 HiPo, (I love the sound of solid lifters, almost erotic) with an original 289 Cobra dual quad set up. Carter carbs, 3258s and 3259s. It has a five speed Tremec and a straight axle 3:55 trac loc rear. Here are some pics.

Wow - great job!
