What happens when an engineer with a demand for detail acquires a heavily modified ’68 Dart powered by a 6.1 Hemi and sporting a Keisler transmission, B&M shifter, RMS suspension and a Strange Dana S60? Tear it down and build it again of course! The car went through a major second rebuild with virtually all new sheet metal, suspension, interior and an Indy Cylinder Head 6.1 Hemi. All that and he kept the Strange Dana S60! End result: 660 HP at 6900 rpm. You can’t second guess the man. Find the full story, and the build-in-process pictures, at Street Legal TV. More pictures after the jump.
Check out this badass ’70 ‘Cuda that the folks at Dr. Mopar’s High Performance are building for Chance Barden. Chris “Doc” Ketteman, owner of Dr. Mopar’s High Performance in Burlington, North Carolina writes:
The vehicle has a 6.1 Hemi with upgraded camshaft, custom Moser 8.75 housing, Ride Tech Air Ride Suspension, Painless wiring, Wilwood 4 wheel Disc brakes, Champion Aluminum Radiator, Bouchillon front p/s alternator serpentine accessory kit, TTI Exhaust headers with cutouts. Will be using 10 w 30 Cam2 Blue Blood Racing Oil and Baldwin Oil Filter for lubrication. We are an “Authorized dealer of Cam2 Racing Oil”. The paint is flat black on hood/decklid, with a color mix close to driftwood beige metallic on the rest of the body. Chance also incorporated a built in spoiler on the body/decklid. Currently we are finishing wiring in the vehicle, and will be running 6AN fuel lines/fittings with push lock ends, getting the vehicle ready to crank and to the dyno. Any computer programming will be via a Diablosport Tuner. Dr. Mopar’s High Performance
That’s right, you are looking at the Moparts Mopar of the Month. It’s a 2000 Ford Mustang. But it’s powered by a BAE Brad 8X Hemi fed by an F3-136 Procharger. But as you might expect, quite a few Moparts members are not that thrilled about seeing a Mustang featured on their site! Check out the burly Hemi after the jump!
How is this for insane? A Hemi-powered Volvo gasser. That’s actually a 331 cubic inch Hemi from 1954. Check it out with all the usual top-notch photography over at Speedhunters
How do you make a Pantera more awesome? Ditch the Ford powerplant and swap in a 426 Hemi, stroked to 526 cubic inches. There is a LOT more that went into this car, though, and it is all thoroughly documented on the Hemi Pantera website. Owner and builder Göran Malmberg is a famous custom guitar and amp builder–Eric Clapton used one of his guitars back the Cream days and Led Zeppelin has used his cabinets. Cool stuff! More pics after the jump!
Saw this posted on Miss Mopar’s Facebook page. Kind of sad they only made the Rampage for three years–you don’t see them much anymore. And you certainly don’t see many with a Hemi stuffed between the fenders!
