About “Sleeper”

This car lives up to it's name: She looks tame on the outside, but when I put my foot in the worked Mopar small block, she just hunkers down and takes off! The engine was left appearing completely stock (until you take off the air cleaner housing with it's K&N low restriction drop-in replacement filter and see the Holley 750cfm 4-barrel, that is!). If you look closely, you'll see the headers that dump into a 3" true dual exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers for a mellow yet purposeful sound.

About “Christine”

My Charger is my first and only car. It was given to me from a family friend because he never drove it and he gave it to me because of my love of classic cars. No previous owner has done any car maintenance to it so everything is pretty much original which is good and bad becuase its now starting to come apart. I plan on painting it Black with Metallic Silver racing strips. I hope to get a rebuilt 440 Hemi in her in the next 5-10 years. I dont plan on putting it on the track or anything like that. The body is in extramly good shape. And i got the Joe Dirt footprint gas pedal lol

 

Specs for “Sleeper”

The engine started out as a mild-mannered 318, but it's been worked within an inch of it's life. Bored out .060 over, stroked 3/4", and the compression bumped up to 10.75:1, and featuring a mid-race cam. The heads have been completely gone through as well, being extrude honed and port-matched, with a three angle valve job. She has a 727 Torqueflite automatic with a shift kit and a 2,000 stall converter, all built to handle the power. It's all backed up by a Posi rear, of course.
