About “Crossram Rat”

Owned car since mid 80's, I am the third owner. Car came out of the Philly area. It has had two frame off resto's the latest coming just a couple of years ago 2003 to be exact.
It features an LS-6 454 with Merlin heads, Crane roller cam, Edelbrock crossram intake with two 500 cfm carbs, Mallory ignition, Dynomax headers. It's backed by a B&M th400 tranny and a GM 12 bolt with Richmond gears and Moser axles. Rolling on Weld wheels and Mickey Thompson rubber.
The car still retains most of the original GM sheetmetal. It has a Harwood 4" fiberglass cowl hood over the 600 hp BB Chevy. It is all covered in a PPG BC/CC Cherry Red metallic paint.
The black interior remains mostly stock with just a B&M Starshifter and a couple of Autometer guages installed.
The chassis also has stayed basically stock but just cleaned up and painted with much stainless, powdercoating and chrome
