History
Purchased the car in 2005 with '73 454, 781 oval port heads, rusty headers, TH350 trans. Pulled the motor in 2007 and bored and stroked it to a 496. Eddy intake and carb to go with the new flat tappet cam from Lunati. Engine made 492 hp and 565 torque on the engine dyno. 1 year later, the oil pump gave out. Pulled the motor, ground the crank, new bearings, new cam, reworked the exhaust ports on the heads. Intakes flow 325 cfm. Brodix Race Rite Ovals flow 345 cfm, so not bad for iron heads. Cam was swapped with a solid roller Lunati custom grind .639" lift on the intake and .659" lift on the exhaust. Moved to a ProSystems 950 carb to feed the monster. A year later I had a 200R4 installed by Century Transmission, 3000 RPM stall. Running 3.73 gears that came with it. Bed mod I ever did.
2018 full suspension swap from SC&C with AFX spindles and BIG brakes from Kore3.
