I spent years finding parts for, and building the motor:
- Genuine Mopar 426 Wedge block, forged-steel crank, and rods. NOT a modern "crate motor". Everything in it is new, with now around 400 miles on it.
- Custom-made, forged aluminum pistons by Venolia, 10.25 compression to run on pump gas.
- Special heads with bigger ports and hardened valves.
- Competition Cams cam with special-order ramp angles, lift, and duration.
- Mopar electronic ignition and Accel high-voltage spark plug wire set.
- Mopar nostalgia tach (looks like 196.
- Edelbrock competition intake and 4-barrel carburetor.
- Competition fuel pressure regulator and braided fuel lines.
- High-flow water and fuel pumps.
- Extremely rare, correct, original factory 426 Mopar Performance exhaust headers.
- Custom-made 3-inch aluminized exhaust and Flowmasters with an incredible sound.
- The radiator is a custom-built high-flow cross-flow modern core, with the original top, bottom, and side tanks in polished brass.
- The 727 transmission was also custom-built, with all competition parts, shift kit, and a 2,500 stall-speed converter.
- Front, up-dated disc brake conversion, which makes a huge difference.
- New Cragar SS mag wheels 380 miles ago.
- New BFGoodrich T/A tires, 380 miles ago.
- New super high-output alternator.
- New starter.
- New shocks, bushings, ends, joints, brakes, etc.
Everything is the very best and cost a fortune. The body is arrow-straight, and lived all its life before in North Carolina (no rust). Super clean underneath.
- It came with factory a/c, which I have set aside in a box to save horsepower.
- The interior is original, with the exception of the replacement, but correct, carpet, and in excellent conditon.
- The paint has just been done, in base-coat clear coat, and is show quality. There is no bondo of any consequence in the car.
- The chrome is very fine, and mostly original.
- The top is recent and very nice, with a new rear window as of last Fall. It goes up and down perfectly.
It's a great performer, but because of the 2:73 differential it is also a very nice highway car, cruising quietly at 80mph with low rpm. It's perfect for going out with my wife, or stomping on little cars with one noisy pipe..
