I built this truck to drive to the local drag strip on Friday nights and have fun.. long story short the track closed for good and the truck doesn’t get driven much.

truck is fairly stripped down to lose weight for the track so there are not many creature comforts. No heat or a/c, radio and wipers have been removed, no cruise control. Open areas in dash where heat/ air & radio controls were. Factory wiring harness was thinned out (not hacked) for just the bare necessities. The inner fender sheet metal for the front fenders was trimmed out, small spot of the hood structure was trimmed for clearance. Truck drives straight down the road but needs alignment (never done after coilover kit). The truck brakes good for manual brakes but I feel there may be a tiny air bubble trapped I haven’t been able to get out yet. Factory gauge cluster doesn’t work.
It does still have power steering, all lights work, horn works, turn signals.
The truck drives great around town, doesn’t run hot, gets thumbs up everywhere I go. Runs 3000 rpm at 62 mph so not exactly good for long distance highway driving. Never been on the track or a dyno but I would guess 450 hp and high 11’s if it would hook. Right now the timing is set conservative, 8-9 lbs of boost and runs on 93 octane. No hiccups or bucking or anything, no choke on the carb so you have to let it warm up a bit when cold.
Have tons of extras that could be negotiated. Extra procharger pullies, rear shock relocation kit with double adjustable Viking shocks, sbc parts, bunch of stock parts, extra wheels and tires.
Don’t need to sell so I will ignore lowball offers. Only trades I would consider is a C5 Z06 or FRC, E55 amg, cts-v. Would consider selling for $2500 less if I keep the supercharger and you bring your own carb. Would also consider a 4th gen f-body 6-speed + cash preferably an SS or WS6.
