Owned by: Jean Hagan Bristol, Connecticut

Mopar Power:

  • Engine: The original RB was sent off to Bob's Machine Shop in Bristol, Connecticut, to have all the machine work and assembly performed. It was bored .030-over and pumps out 445-cubic inches now. Inside, Keith Black pistons are attached to Eagle rods and a stock Chrysler crankshaft. The original heads received some bowl work to compliment the custom Comp Cams .510-inch lift 512-duration hydraulic camshaft. An Edelbrock intake and Holley carburetor take care of the air and fuel as it's ingested through the dual snorkel intake. A factory replacement exhaust sits behind the lightly-modded engine, and it delivers all the sounds she's been looking for since she was 14.
  • Transmission: Mated to the 440 is a TorqueFlite built by Economy Transmission with a Dynamic 3500-stall converter and B&M Shift Kit.
  • Rearend: A Dana 9 3/4 -inch rear is filled a Sure Grip differential and 4.10 gears.

Sure Grip

  • Suspension: The front uses the factory torsion bars, and Super Stock springs and a pinion snubber are used in the rear. Stock shocks were retained.
  • Brakes: Factory drums.
  • Wheels and Tires: Factory Magnum wheels were ordered through YearOne, and a set of F70-14 Red Line tires were mounted for the classic look.

High Impact

  • Paint and Body: Ron's Auto Madness in Bristol, performed all the body work and paint. A replacement fender from Auto Body Specialties was the only new metal needed before it was sprayed in the original Light Bronze Metallic color.
  • Interior: YearOne parts were used inside to bring the cabin back to life. Brian Hagan, her husband, performed all the work.
