'71 Dodge Demon
Owned by: Ron and Barbara Larson
- Engine: A 365-inch small-block with Keith Black forged pistons, forged rods, and a stock crankshaft. It sports a Mopar Purple-Shaft cam with .472/.487-inch lift and 208/216-degrees duration. Air is drawn in through an Edelbrock Air Gap intake and what else? A Demon 750 carburetor. The mixture finds its way through the 2.02/1.65 valves actuated by Comp roller rockers inside the ported cast iron R/T heads.
- Exhaust: A pair of tti 1 5/8-inch headers with 3-inch collectors feed into 2 1/2-inch Magnaflow mufflers.
- Ignition: Mopar Chrome ECU, MSD Blaster 2 coil, and Taylor 8mm plug wires make up the ignition.
- Transmission: The column-shifted 727 was rebuilt by St. George Transmissions in St. George, Utah. It features a TransGo shift kit, and a TCI 3,000 stall converter.
- Rearend: An 8 3/4 with 3.23 gears and a Powerlock differential.
- Suspension: KYB gas shocks up front and Monroe Air shocks out back dampen the road imperfections. A 1-1/8-inch sway bar stabilizes the front, stock Dodge leaf springs control the rear, while poly graphite bushings all around replace the factory rubber pieces.
- Brakes: Front discs from Master Power Brakes and rear 11-inch drums.
- Wheels and Tires: 17x7-inch Coys C-5 wheels and Goodyear Eagle RSA tires measuring 215/60R17 up front and 235/60R17 out back.
- Paint and Body: Heavenly Bodies in Cedar City, Utah, repaired the heavily damaged body on Ron and Barbara's Demon. After seeing Kenny Wayne Shepherd's Duster in the pages of Mopar Muscle, Ron decided to go with a two-tone scheme that Heavenly Bodies took to a different level with the incorporation of the devil's tail in the stripes and custom hand striping.
- Interior: As a one-stop shop, they also completed the custom seats and interior work.
