Car is titled and non op'd.

This project is freshly completed and has never been on the road. There are a few details that I am working on, runs and sounds strong (still needs to be dialed in), Electrical is fully completed, fuel system is fully completed. This car was built to drive not trailer...period. She's not a trailer queen!
