This is my old 1985 SC, after being for sale for a few years Brian finally sold it, it now belongs to Mike Gifford. It started life as a zero option 2.8/T5 car. I knew full well what I was going to do with it, but I got it running and shortly after with the 2.8 but I swapped in my Moser 9" with 4.10's (I blew those to smithereens one day too and now it has 3.50's) and Herb Adams solid control arms and pan hard both with hiem joints. We pulled off the front sway bar and installed sub frames while it was still a 6 cylinder. It was so much fun to try to blow that 2.8 it launched just as hard with the V6 (almost lifting the tires)
Then it got the 355 SBC and then a like new T-56 from a 94 bird. The 355 is well worn, but has forged pistons and is balanced. It also recieved the near brand new Dart S/R heads w/2.02-1.6's I had on my last motor.
This 85 only weighed 2800 lbs on the scale (checked on 2 scales same hour), add Brian and it is an under 3000 #'s! The funny part is the car hooked just as good on the street as the track.
On the dyno just before I sold it made 435hp. The Force EFI hardware was controlled by a modified old analog projection TBI box, but is now controlled by Accel DFI Gen-6.
I originally sold it to Brian Blanton because he was at my house for the build-up so he knew the whole car well. It is the only car I really miss. Family concerns made him lose interest in it and sell it to Mike, so I doubt I will ever be getting it back.

The nickname of this ride is much maligned for a super sleeper of this simplicity and performance. Consistent 12 flats and more recent high 11’s made this car a bad street cruiser (video available). This car made 435 HP and 575 TQ to the rear wheels on a Dynojet
