I picked this car up as a roller in '09. In my two car garage, it has taken me lots of hours, blood, sweat, & tears to get it in the shape it is today. The whole point of this project was to see if I could build a car that is dependable enough to drive anywhere, be consistant enough to win at the dragstrip, and at the same time look great, & be 100% NHRA/IHRA legal. I drive it to the track every weekend and it is currently doing very well with an 11-3 round record this year. It turns heads eveywhere I go and my son (6) loves it when I pick him up from school in it (the teachers, not so much....). It retains it's original, complete, interior and also has a great sound system. For power, it has an aluminum headed Vortec 350, TH400, Ford 9", and is a solid 12 second street car.
Update 8/30/11: This car just clenched First Place for Team Bunker Hill 2011 in the Sportsman Class NHRA Summit Racing Series. That qualifies it for the Division 3 ET Finals VP Race Fuels Race of Champions race to be held in Indy on 9/16/11.
When I bought this truck it was a white LS and I started modifing it as soon as I got it home.Everything I did myself except the body paint,recovering the seats in leather and installing the 4:56 gears.
I call this my 4X4 Vette because of the Wipple Supercharged LS 5.3 with 10 lbs boost, Arizona Speed and Marine long tube headers, true dual exaust made with a Flowmaster 2.5 mandrel U-Fit kit, Magnaflow polished cats, Flowmaster Hush Power 2 polished mufflers, Granitelly mass air flow sensor for Corvette power, 4:88 gears to get it moving like a Vette and recovered the bucket seats in leather, console and extended console to give it that Corvette feel and SSBC Tri-Power polished brake calipers with Power Slot rotors front and rear to stop like a Vette.
