On vacation right now, but my dad sent a few pictures of the progress View attachment 828471951


Ecu harness can fit under the clutch pedal mount with firewall mods.
The main harness also needs to be moved towards the fender.
It also helps to trim the clutch pedal mount

We got another parts car. A TRUE parts car this time. We may use the grill and tail-light pieces on the banana car

The rear will be changed to 4.10

Also, the Hurst shifter will have to be replaced with a stock one because of clearance issues with the output shaft.

Easy on those half shafts with the manual trans/4.10 combination. :burnout:

Nice project by the way.

I don't how I missed this thread. I saw this car riding around Sarasota and took several pics of it at a bank at Lockwood Ridge rd. and University. Good luck with the project!

lol, keep the wheel hopping launches to a minimum and you shouldn't see much issue.
getting some Delrin bushings will help even more with the wheel hop issue.

Yes. They're in my old phone. I plan on getting them transferred to my new phone shortly. When I do, I will PM you and send them!

Thanks! I'm trying to get as many pics of it as I can while it was possibly owned by George Blair. If it's OK, I'd like to post them on here too so people can see them. Just making sure it's OK since your the one who took them and they're your property.

Since many like to use the CobraStar emblem on the front quarter panels, I thought we should try something different. I figured it would be neat to make a custom 281 black vinyl sticker for the BananaCar. I thought it would be cool to have B.G.B. under the displacement to honor the previous owner: Banana George Blair. I'm still playing around with the font and slant, but I like the look of the hollowed numbers for sure. The slants are 20 degrees and are side specific.
