|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This car retains the original Sebring race engine #EX178/43 which has a special block and head casting that eliminate internal water passages and enable the engine to be assembled without a head gasket. Other factory modifications include a long range 20-gallon fuel tank, dual fuel pumps, dual ignition coils, quick lift jacks, a ZF limited slip rear axle, Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes and pin located knockoff disc wheels.
Numerous panels, such as the front valance and transmission tunnel were made of alloy, and Plexiglas was used to replace the side and rear windows to reduce weight.
