Cool. Did they come with that wheel, which appears to be the same as the Corvette wheel of the era?

The early Tempests used an independent rear suspension, and a modifed Corvair transaxle linked to the engine with a box form tube containing a torque shaft. making the engine and transaxle one unit. When assembled, the torque shaft bowed down 3" from the horizontal in the center. It was actually known as "rope drive".
I guess when they made this one , the transaxle and related componets were highly modified, since the normal engines were a 4, the now Rover 215 V8, and the 326 V8.

That wheel came on my car. I think it was an option.

I've seen your driving, you're gonna need a whole lotta bungy cords to keep her from sliding off in the corners.

Thank You. I can take credit for the work but the site itself is handled by someone else.
