Dave Goodbread's gorgeous "Factory" 401/4 spd Matador coupe, previously owned by Brad Denning (photos courtesy John Rosa - javelinamx.com):

You will notice the Vise-Grips holding the shifter in place, and the air cleaner housing on the seat - this was while the 401 and tranny were out of the car being "refreshed" before Dave bought it.

If you doubt this car runs, check out the timeslip figures on the Registry List page.

Now that Dave has bought it, he plans to "detune" it a bit with more street-friendly rear gears, and a bit milder cam for better street performance and mileage.
