Last raced at 2000 Solo 2 Nationals (I think), in storage past twenty years and not started in ten.  It still looks like the photo, just dusty in a small garage.

Built and raced by Bill Condrashoff from a rust-free California car.  Since moving to Illinois in the mid-90s it has never been street-driven and always garaged.  I raced it 1998 through 2000 as Condrasoff built it (Nationals trophies in ’98 and ’99), then set about revising it with help from Jim Susko (G-Force Engineering);  I finished it but never sorted it --- lost interest when these cars were re-classified CSP c2001.

Powertrain

  • 1500cc refreshed by Prather Racing, only an hour or so shakedown since rebuild
  • Electromotive TEC2 crank-triggered ignition and fuel injection
  • 4-choke intake built from 2 x 40 DCOE Weber carbs with ports for OEM injectors grafted to the Weber manifold
  • Tubular exhaust header, turbo muffler
  • Aluminum flywheel by Apple Racing (steel insert engagement surface)
  • 5-speed transmission, recent rebuild

Suspension

  • G-Force Engineering coilover housings and camber plates
  • Eibach springs
  • Advance Design double-adjustable shock inserts (Ground Control)
  • Designed/specified by Jim Susko (G-Force)

Wheels

  • 1 set 13 x 9 Keizer 3-piece
  • 1 set 13 x 8.5 Keizer 3-piece
  • 1 set 13 x 8.5 Panasport 3-piece, minilite-style centers
  • 1 set 13 x 7 Revolution cast wheels (used for BFG R1 rains)

Spares

  • Complete Condrashoff-spec suspension with Koni shocks, springs, camber plates
  • Rebuilt 5-speed transmission
  • Good set of half-shafts
  • Original intake manifold and throttle body

Trailer

  • 16’ dual-axle Speedwagon open trailer
  • Removable tire rack
  • Tires are up but likely flat-spotted from sitting;  I’ll replace them for the right deal

It still looks like the photo, just dusty in a small garage;  I could get some current photos if interested.  No reasonable offer refused --- I need the space.

Oh gosh St Charles IL?

That's really close to me (Homewood flossmoor area).

I'm out of state on vacation for 2 weeks. Would you be willing to sell the spare koni suspension setup separate?

Trust me, I did a cost analysis of reasonable vs unreasonable and didn't come up with a good line between the two.

Let us know, he send me over some pictures, looks good from the photos. Well worth his asking price in my opinion from the pictures and description.

They're small enough he should be able to stack them 3-high in his garage. Might have to flip one of over & nest them windshield-to-windshield though.

It was a good deal, I would have purchased if it was not so far away. Plus I picked one up earlier so I have one to build already
