VERY EYE CATCHING ROADSTER! 383 CRATE V8 W/ AUTO & DISC BRKS! UNIQUE & VERY FUN!
Looking to make an impact from behind the wheel of a truly one of a kind ride? Check out this 2001 Diva Roadster. It combines dynamic styling, a light curb weight and some serious power, so it's a veritable rocket on wheels but in addition, its impressively engineered components from front to back make it an agile, refined performer as well.
There'll be double takes for sure when this roadster pulls up. The concept of a built to order component car is not a new one, but this is a model you just don't often see. Its Electron blue paint cuts a high impact appearance and upon closer inspection you won't find the unsightly stress cracks in the fiberglass body that are so common among lesser reinforced models. The paint quality does this distinctive car proud and up front, a nostalgia-invoking grille reminiscent of the Ford coupes of the early '30s - albeit in a more compact form - sits between two prominently sized chrome headlight casings, just in front of the gracefully scooped hood whose extra clearance hints at the sizable powerplant underneath. The vents on either side of the front end add a great visual detail in addition to improved ventilation. Sturdy roll bars protect both driver and passenger - a nice feature often missing in component cars.
The low profile and open cockpit configuration of the Diva makes doors unnecessary and the step inside the cockpit is an easy one. Once you make it, you'll be surrounded by a gray vinyl interior that's in fresh, lightly used condition. The bucket seats have enough bolster to provide support during aggressive cornering and fit nicely inside the cockpit as they straddle a platform that puts the automatic shifter within easy reach. The dash area features a nice assortment of white faced gauges to keep tabs on motoring functions, as well as a pad across the top that, judging from its appearance, has been spared from much exposure to the sun. A sturdy strut braces the rear deck lid in its raised position, and you'll find a nice amount of space inside the trunk area for some take along items.
Big power plus light weight has always been the time-tested formula for exhilarating acceleration and it's on display here in absolute abundance. There's a 383 cubic inch crate V8 under the hood, armed with Weiand intake manifold and a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb that sits under a sharp looking Holley air cleaner. The powerplant is in very good form, running smoothly and sounding great through its aftermarket headers, with an exhaust note that's deep and rumbling, but stops short of being too overbearing. The amply sized V8 pairs with a 3-speed automatic transmission to make up a solid, responsive drivetrain that's entrusted with powering a car whose curb weight is just a bit over 2100 lbs, so you can get an idea of just how much acceleration will be at your disposal. Where handling is concerned, this roadster has things covered as well - it features rack and pinion steering, coilover suspension in both front and back, and a 5-link Ford rear axle that's adept at handling uneven surfaces. Disc brakes at all four corners bring this street machine to a quick stop on its 16" Eagle Alloy polished aluminum wheels that are wrapped with Falken tires.
