Got the 433 off the chasis of my 73 440 gt and cant stop wondering about something.  The shroud is built to accept an electric start except i dont remember seeing or hearing about one on the roll o flexs.  Does anyone know if there was an electric starter option and if not, has anyone put one in?

I have never seen a rolloflex with a starter, but I am thinking you could put one on.

Over the short 4 years of our production, yes we produced a few electric start sleds... to the best of my recollection it was mostly with the Cherokee or 18" track models. Wade Collins was our "Electrical-brains" and between him and Katsu (engineer), they worked out the wiring harness and the schematics.
Happy holidays everybody... Safe sledding.... I'm off to the sunshine for the next 3 months... I'll be checking here often..

Thanks for the info Gene. Now that we know they existed, does anyone have one?

Have a sunny winter Gene and Mery Christmas to all the roll-o-heads out there.
