Vintage race car revival (2002 content)

So back In may I found out steve aka blunttech Had a vintage race car. We quickly came to an agreement on price and she was mine.









On june 7th I was finally able to go get her.



Then I took it the shop and thats where it sat until this last weekend



I found out it had an alpina big break kit on it so IE sent me a present to swap the brakes with



Went and removed the alpina brakes and sold them for a good amount of cash



Then I Found a m10 and set of stahl headers for 250 bucks






Now Im left with how the car looks right now which is on stands with now brakes or hubs becuase the bearing kits i got were mis labeled. I'll soon be putting her back together.





I hope to get more work done in the coming weekends. Funds and time are limited right now though.

Finally got around to picking up my motor and headers. All I have to say is WIN. Motor sat since early 2000's but when I pulled the head.....



It's and e12 cast head that appears to have been rebuilt only a few thousand miles ago. The valaves look great except the exhaust side cause it was open to the elements in the guys garage some surface rust but when I got a scotch brite pad on them it scrubbed off

The bottom end how ever is a different story it didn't have an oil pan so the cyl walls have surface rust. Hopefully I can get it to knock loose pretty easily and re use the Pistons for a little while. I hoping a hone, new rings and bearings will bring the bottom end back to life. Cause right now it's dead can't even see hatching in the cyl walls on the top side.







I also found out the stahl headers are 1 5/8 primaries so those are good for now...

I approve of vintage race car builds!

Good thing you took a look at those bearing shells, they look a bit dark. You using stock brakes? I thought you said BBK so I wonder if your vintage rules are different. Originally available setup?

Gotcha! What will you use in the rear? I noticed a lot of the 2002s I've raced have the rare factory rear disc conversion...
