When I bought it, it was just a car with a 350 and a TH400. Over the years I made it a street strip car, then a race car... now it's a street strip car again. Will it become a pure street cruiser? A pro-touring car? Only time will tell.
Engine: 406 small block with flat top BRC pistons, 6" Eagle rods, Xtreme Energy solid roller, AFR 195 heads, Air gap RPM intake, 750 dp Holley, 1 3/4" headers.
Trans: TH 400 w/ trans brake and 4000 stall FTI Competition Converters torque converter.
Rear: 12 bolt - craigslist find with 3.31 gears and an open diff . big change from the spool and 4.30's!
Stock brakes (power disc/drum from a 69)
Suspension: Moroso trick springs front and rear. Lakewood drag shocks front and rear.
Rear lower trailing arms: Stock, boxed with new bushings .
Upper trailing arms: Stock with new bushings.
-Front and Rear BMR sway bars - don't typically go with drag racing springs and shocks, but it's a slow process converting it to street car.
Front: Centerline Autodrag 15x4.? with 165r15
Rear Centerline Autodrag 15x8.5 with 275/60/15 BFG T/A radials.
- the skinnies look funny with the large sway bars, but I'll eventually change them to something wider for better handling.
Was a nightmare... but it's something close to the Daytona Yellow I wanted.
Mostly stock or stock appearing (except the roll bar ;-) )
The front seats came from a 66 GTO, I had them upholstered with Chevelle covers and I painted the metal parts black (they were gold)
I upholstered the rear seat, installed the carpet, installed the headliner.
The center console is from a 69. The stock shifter has been modified to use as a slap shifter.
It has run a best of 10.97 @ 119.9?
Best 60' of 1.47
The current combo ran 7.70's in the 1/8th mile on the day I took it to the track. I KNOW there's more in it, but if I go down that road it will lead me back to where I just came from... So I force myself to be satisfied with that track performance, and concentrate on making it a better street car.
