The fully built 468ci big-block engine features a polished Wieand 6-71 supercharger, all-forged internals, custom headers, dual
Holley carburetors and a Vertex Mag.
A Powerglide automatic transmission sends power back to the narrowed Ford 9" rear end held in place by a triangulated 4-link. Up

Specialties steering wheel.
