This beauty was set up as a show car by the family I bought it from and they showed it for a several years. I wanted a driver and I was building this specifically for myself so I put the best of everything in it. The car has less than 1240 miles on the new engine, transmission, suspension, etc.
Following is a list of the big dollar items that are in the car.
The engine is a professionally built 454, 30 over forged pistons, CompCams 280HR hydraulic roller cam, Merlin oval port cast iron heads, Morel roller lifters, Edelbrock 7561 RPM Airgap intake manifold, Holley 850hp carburetor, Sharp 1.7 roller rockers, MSD 6A digital, Taylor 8.8 mm wires, Headman headers with 3" exhaust, new oil and fuel pumps, Clevite bearings, Griffin aluminum two row 1.25" radiator w/electric fan. CompCams CamQuest software predicted close to 600hp and 600ft-lbs of torque with this set up. I don't think it is that strong but she does run good!
The transmission is a Richmond ROD 6 speed manual, Hurst Pistol Grip Shifter with custom wood grip. The clutch is a ceramic disc with low flex pressure plate and an American Powertrain hydraulic clutch.
The frame has been reinforced (not just channeled) and is powder coated. The rear suspension was completely upgraded with UMI Performance adjustable upper and lower control arms and a control arm reinforcement bracing kit. The 10 bolt rear end was upgraded with Moser 7107 axles, Richmond 3.73 gears, Yukon Dura-Grip Posi unit, Moser truss style diff cover.
100% rewired with American AutoWire Classic series wiring harness. The dash is from Classic Automotive Specialties including Autometer Phantom II, GPS speedometer, oil pressure, water temp, volt meter and fuel level. Everything but the backup lights work (needs wiring from trans to the harness).
The interior is customized to match the flame paint job, new carpet, power driver side front seat, with trunk area finished to match. (you will want to get a center console or carpet to cover the trans hump.
The wheels and tires are also new, US Mags U102 17"x8" front and 17"x9" rear. The tires are Raptor ZR 225/45/R17 in front with 275/40/R17 rear. Four-wheel disc brakes with CCP Street Beast hydra-boost system (runs off the power steering pump). NEW PAINT JOB ALL BLACK ON 04/27/2019
