Large NACA type–duct in the front hood to allow radiator heat to escape. 250 GTO type rear fender scoops. Engine and trunk lid in a one–piece assembly. Engine and gearbox rebuilt to very high standards with higher compression pistons. Full roll cage. BBS 3–piece wheels. Very nicely detailed frame, rebuilt suspension, all new bellypans and all new aluminum inner structure built to very high standards.
