Speed Demon...worlds fastest wheel driven piston vehicle.

The six speed air shifted 480 mph Liberty transmission.

Just in case none (all) of you have never seen one.

Notice the Spirit of America in the second shot.

That's just cool Phil. And that trans should just bolt right up to a Corvair axle right. Mel could use one of those for his 4 door.

Wow! Looking at that transmission one would never call it a slush box!make sure you clench your teeth while it’s shifting or you might break them!
