What to Expect

Unit construction thumper that was quite modern back in ’53 Clipper version but suffered when tuned in later Conti and Crusader – vile vibes, broken gearboxes, con-rods, etc, plus they were real oil gushers. Late Conti’s have the most street cred and most likelihood of blowing up in a big way. Its reasonable chassis can usefully take a Jap single!
