This is a very special car for the right buyer. This car was bought new in southern California by Skip Hess, the founder and, then owner of BMX and Mongoose Bicycle Company. He had the dealership deliver the car to a southern California customizer and for more than a year, they turned this brand new car into a modern hot rod. They removed the suspension and custom engineered a much lowered, much tighter ride. They installed headers and performance cams but did leave the original power-plant. They had aluminum racing wheels made solely for this car and made a custom paint job for it. When completed, the bill was for almost what the car cost! The car toured with the BMX/Mongoose races and was used for promotional purposes from 1982 to 1985. It was featured in a few magazines, one of which is included with the car. In 1986 the car was sold at auction to a car collector in northern Indiana and sat, undisturbed in a collection for 30 years until I bought it. When I got it I flushed out the fuel system and replaced the pump, accumulator, warm-up regulator, fuel distributor, fuel lines and all of the injectors. I removed the intake manifold, valve covers, timing gear cover as well as all of the engine brackets and powder coated them. I replaced the AC compressor AC lines, condenser, accumulator and now the AC runs great! I installed LED lights in the interior, doors and tail lights as well as orange LEDs under the fuel-air mixture so the engine illuminates orange at night when the engine cover is up. I also replaced the headers installed in 1982 with a DPI spec 1 exhaust kit. I replaced the clutch slave and master cylinder as well as installing a stainless steel clutch line. I installed a new brake master cylinder and installed new rear calipers. The seats and interior are original and flawless. It has the original dash and binnacle, both are in perfect condition. The original radio works great as does the clock. I have put about 650 miles since I finished my work to it. This is an absolute show car with a great history. It would be an impressive, historic addition to any collection or it would make a great, reliable driver for someone! I do reserve the ability to end the auction as this car is listed locally. Please call me with any questions at 317-670-6397-
