A Pertronix Igniter electronic ignition module was installed under the rotor for a hidden upgrade to help reliability and smoother engine performance.
The 396 was sitting on some home made mounts which didn’t position the engine properly, so we fabricated a quick set of frame stands to remedy the situation.
They sit on rubber mounts and were painted black to match the frame.
A new power-assisted master cylinder was installed, along with custom bent stainless brake lines.
