Here's what it looked like before.

Here's what it looks like now!

Basically, back in the beginning of the season, it broke lol It was making a pass when it lost oil pressure and went pop. Essentially, the valve springs were weak and a piston sucked a valve, they made contact. 2 pushrods came out of their journals. Blew a spark plug in half. Cracked the piston and cylinder wall. Long story short, it's getting a new motor and front end rebuilt. The old 440 had enough torque that it actually split the frame of the car.

So that's all welded back up and the rollcage is rebuilt. Currently waiting on connecting rods then it's just a matter of putting the new engine together and in the car. :party18:

If everything works out we're putting a bored out and decked 440, it'll be +500c.i. and +13:1 compression with the torque of God :llooll:

Oh hell no!! I wish! It's at a friend of ours, he builds tons of Mopars and we don't even have a quarter of what his garage is! We don't have nearly enough room to build a car like this unless it's down in the bodyshop, but that takes up space for a car we could be working on for a customer. Here's another shot of his shop...

The place is full of engines, transmissions, differentials, rollcage tubing and everything.

There she is. A 440 stroked out to 496 and decked block and heads for higher compression and Indy heads to help make it all work. The bottom end is built for low 9 second runs in a 3,000lb car.

Thanks! So far, the front is now a walk-off clip and the hood is a walk-off also. Engine is fully built 9 second motor. Indy heads, high-rise Indy intake, 1050cfm carb, stroked +500c.i. and new Willwood disk brakes, line, etc. Front suspension is refreshed with bushings, ball joints, etc. New balanced, aluminum driveshaft, just got do some welding work on the rear end to make it hold the power and it'll be back to the track!

yes and no, all the video i have is on my HI-8 tapes. my brother however has some stuff on his computer, but i dont have access to it. i've got a few pics of the car/engine though i'll upload.



as for the body, from the firewall back its all the original metal bodywork, its got a full tube chassis, the front is all fiberglass except the grill which is original. doors still work also. if memory serves me correctly it weighs 2400lbs
