Classic Car Overview

This car was born from a dream that started when it was new. When introduced in 1966 I thought this was a perfect car. Not too large, not too small, enough horsepower to run with the big dogs and good looking to. In 1966 I thought, "I'm going to have one of those someday. It only took 40 years and it was far from new. The floors were rusted through, the drive train was worn out, the rats had eaten the interior and there was a hole for a floor shifter made with a can opener, but it was a true SS car. Six and a half years later it had a new front suspension from Heidts with rack and pinion steering, tubular "A" arms and dropped spindles and disc brakes. The rear of the car was modified to create a sub-frame to accept a custom built independent rear suspension using a Ford 8.8 center, with 3.73 gears, posi-traction and Dutchman axles and disc brakes. All of this is supported by Air Ride Technologies air springs and adjustable shocks and managed from the inside by Dakota digital gauge and controls in the center console. The engine is a 353 (not a misprint) small block. This is a de-stroked 400. Steel 3 1/4 crank, "H" beam 6.250 Eagle connecting rods, custom pistons, AFR aluminum heads, roller rockers, Comp Cams retrofit hydraulic roller cam, Mass Flow electronic fuel injection. The power is transmitted through a 700R4 built by Bow Tie Overdrive. This combination makes just under 500 HP and gets 25 MPG on the road. The body has many subtle modifications. The bumpers have been tucked and narrowed, the drip rails shaved along with the door handles and gas filler. The windshield and rear glass are flush mounted and the "wing" windows have been eliminated and replaced with a single glass in the door. The car rides on Billet Specialties "Vintec" wheels. The interior is black paint, gray leather and black walnut accents. The dash is "Inteletronics" digital. Tilt, cruise, air, power brakes, steering, windows, seats, doors.
