"Some old lady in Vegas ended up with it, and it sat in a garage for, like, 34 years."--Terry Toth
1964 Dodge 440 two-door hardtop
Owned by: Terry Toth, Saddlebrook, Arizona
- Engine: Much-modified 383 (bored out .060-inch to 395 cubes) provides '60s Super Stock looks with gobs of power, thanks to iron Mopar 425 heads, Comp Cams 284 camshaft, dual Carter 625 cfm four-barrels atop a Mopar intake, MSD ignition and Hedman Headers.
- Transmission: The same one that the Dodge Super Stock guys used way back when to win automatically: the 727 TorqueFlite: Terry's has a B&M shift kit, 2,500 stall converter and B&M Star shifter.
- Rear: A stock 489 rear housing is filled with 31-spline axles and a 3.23-geared Sure Grip.
- Suspension: Modified stock 1964 Dodge, with torsion bars up front, competition leaf springs in back, Edelbrock shocks all the way around, and Competition Engineering wheelie bars.
- Brakes: 11-inch Mopar drums at all corners brakes provide the stopping power, along with an S&W Race Cars parachute on the back.
- Wheels/Tires: American Racing Wheels' Torq-Thrusts wear black wall Goodyear radials all around (P215/70R14 Regatta 2's in front, P275/60R15 Eagle GTII's in back).
- Paint/Body: Original 1964 Dodge B-Body two-door hardtop unibody escaped the ravages of time and weather, so all of its original steel and glass is there and intact (along with a fiberglass Max Wedge hood scoop). Paint is two-stage DuPont ChromaBase Scarlet Red
- Interior: Terry fabricated the roll bar from an S&W Race Cars kit. Seats are A990-style front buckers and the stock rear bench (with custom covers), and gauges are by Auto Meter.
