Your car is beautiful! What sort of engine is it? I see dual carbs and it looks like a deep oil sump.

Thank you. The engine is a 2276. New AS41 case, tapped for full flow with a 1.5 qt oil sump. Mahle pistons, CB counter weighted crank, and I beam rods, all balanced. Cam is an Engle 125 with 1.25:1 ratio solid shaft rockers. D ported heads are from Brothers Machine Shop which are match ported to the manifolds. 42x37.5 three angle stainless valves with dual heavy duty springs. Carbs are Italian Weber 48IDA's. CR is 8.0:1. I just installed a Bosche 010 distributor (Glenn Ring) which I like very much. Exhaust is a 1 5/8 A-1 Sidewindwer ceramic coated merged to a polished stainless steel muffler. The pro-street transaxle is from Rancho with super diff, welded 3rd and 4th, hardened keys, super beetle 1st gear, bus nose cone, steel axles, and heavy duty side plates on both sides. Thanks to Brother's Machine Shop for helping me with the parts, and Glenn Billaber on the big Island of Hawaii for building my motor.
