Challenge Car Quick Change Grill

Yuuup

Started a project to make a quick change exhaust and rear grill for a challenge car.

For street it will have 2 cats and a "silencer" exiting out the bottom
Race is strait out the back most direct route.

Goal is to be able to change the exhaust and rear grill to the alternate configuration in 10-15 max.

Here is the grill part roughed in. Held in simply with 4 Dzus fasteners. R&R time under 1 min to change the configuration.

Exhaust to come I will be using springs to hold it in place with quick connects.
The race pipes will have outer pipes to extract air from the engine bay using the exhaust as a vacuum.

Is that Greg's ex 355 - lives in Naples raced CCR?

If so that is an extremely modified 355.

Congrats!

Yes it is. A fantastic car I am trying to keep "as is" or clean up a few race things.

She runs like a raped ape for sure

Thank you I will.


They look beautiful!!!

All I need is a "late" model F Car now, maybe a nice 360 with Race History to keep the other company. Maybe for my birthday next year.


Now that I'm old and slow all I can do is give them a easy workout to keep the blood flowing
