Mopar Power

  • Engine: The motor is a '70s-era Dodge 340, worked over by Competition Automotive with a fresh bottom end, a Hughes cam kit, and a high-rpm Edelbrock Performer heads and port-matched Six Pack intake. A Milodon pan keeps it slick, and Hooker headers attached to a factory type T/A muffler/exhaust system round it out. Ignition is from Mopar.
  • Transmission: A833 four-speed with Centerforce clutch and Hayes flywheel.
  • Differential: 8¾ with 4.11 gearing, Sure Grip, and Strange axles.
  • Horsepower and Performance: Dyno'd at 445 ponies off the crankshaft.

Sure Grip

  • Suspension: Super Stock rear springs and pinion snubber.
  • Brakes: rebuilt front discs and rear drums
  • Wheels: Factory 14-inch steelies painted body color.
  • Rubber: Goodyear Polyglas E70-14.

High Impact

  • Body: The bodywork was done by Performance Car Restorations and features a '72 style hood scoop and Go Wing.
  • Paint: F5 red paint and black longitudinal body stripe.
  • Interior: The front bench seat has a wood-handled Hurst shifter coming up from the floor; there is also some Autometer gauges and tach to monitor whatever those gears shifts change.
  • Best Performance: Ask the unfortunate street guys who have first "Hand" experience...
