Car info: 3 owner car originally purchased by Larry Herek at John Craft Chevrolet, July 2nd 1972 on 85th and Military. Car was purchased by me in September of 2007 with 85,000 original miles. It still retained its original color, Mohave Gold, 350 motor and 3 speed on the column.
After a few mild mods at C&S Motorsports, Carb, Intake, Exhaust, etc. it was driven occasionally and seen at a few local shows. The car garnered little attention as it sat in its “drabish” brown state and although a somewhat rare car, it wasn’t the most desirable...I wanted more and I had a vision.

Motor: 400 Small Block, Scat Crank, Eagle Rods, Chevy Bowtie Heads, Erson Roller Rockers, Competition Cams “Thumper Cam”, Wiseco Forged .030 over 10.5:1 compression pistons, Quick Fuel 650 double pumper carb.
