About “T-DEVIL”

This is my favorite car I wish I still had. It had a lot of respect. It pounded hard and was heard from blocks away. It was one of the fastest cars in this town for a little while. I called it T-Devil for the Tasmanian Devil as this is just what it was. A small car with a nasty bite.

About “The Ghost”

This car has been through alot with me. It has been in a few ditches, overheated a few more times. But shes in good shape for the shape shes in. It passes everything but a gas station. But thats ok.

 

Specs for “T-DEVIL”

1978 Chevy Monza Hatchback. 355 Chevy 4-bolt main motor, with 11-1 compression on factory rods, polished beams, and ARP bolts. The crankshaft was a factory forged steel piece. I used Clevite bearings and Sealed Power Chrome Moly Rings. The heads were Double Hump 2.02/1.6, Manley Severe Duty valved, Comp Cams springs, 10 degree locks, and Harland Sharpe roller rockers. The cam was a ..580/.580 lift solid cam that was from Competition Products. The intake was a Edelbrock Victor Jr. and I used a Holley 750 Double Pumper carb. Oiling was handled with a Milodon wet sump system. Fuel was handled by a Mallory Comp 140 system with AN 8 fuel lines and the ignition was also handled by Mallory components. The trans was a turbo 350 with a Fairbanks 3500-4000 stall convertor and a full competition valve body. It had a lot of chrome and other goodies.

Specs for “The Ghost”

307 v8

 

Factory Options for “T-DEVIL”

This car was an original 305 SB Chevy car with a 3.08 rearend ratio. The trans was a turbo 250. It had 13" wheels and tires on it. It came factory with single exhaust. Nothing exotic here but rather a little fun car. Enough to let you know it had potential and fast enough to hold its own with the factory cars of it's time.

Factory Options for “The Ghost”

No factory options listed.

 

Mods for “T-DEVIL”

I added an 8 pt roll cage, 4.56 gears, Moser aftermarket axles, U.S. Body Fiberglass hood with an 8" torpedo scoop. I used 15" x 8" Center Line rear wheels and 15" x 4" on the front. The battery was mounted in the rear of the car along with the NOS bottle for the 175 HP system that was on board. I used an aluminum radiator. I used all Auto Meter gauges and tach. RCI racing seats, seat covers, 5 way racing harnesses, and a Cheetah Command Center that housed all my switches on the console covering my Hurst Q-Stick shifter. There was an 8 gallon fuel cell installed in the rear of the hatch as well. The rear suspension had custom made solid tubed lower control arms with aluminum bushings that I made. I used an airbag in the rear passenger side coil spring to help launch it straight.

Mods for “The Ghost”
