Under the hood is a beastly motor. But the crisp look also reminds you it’s a fresh one with less than 1,600 miles on it. This is a hardy Merlin III 540 cubic-inch big block V8. This has been enhanced and fortified with an Eagle competition forged rotating assembly, Dart Pro 1 aluminum cylinder heads, Comp Cams solid roller camshaft, Moroso fabricated valve covers, ARP bolts, Edelbrock 2927 aluminum intake, and topped with a massive Pro System three-circuit 1200 CFM four-barrel carburetor. Hooker Super Competition headers add even more power while also contributing to the thunder of the dual exhaust. And when you really want to show them all your taillights, there’s also a NOS 200-shot nitrous system. A build of this quality also has the right supporting components, like steel-braided hoses, an MSD 7-AL-2 ignition, a high torque starter, and a Griffin Aluminum radiator with electric fans. The big power is connected to a TCI TH400 three-speed with reverse manual body, trans brake, and 3500 stall. This feeds the Ford 9-inch Detroit Locker rear with Strange Engineering 35 spline axles. So you have stout components for powerful take-offs. In fact, this one feel solid all-around thanks to new bushings, QA1 adjustable coilovers, and the reinforced and welded frame. The ladder bar rear end knows how to keep those wide Hoosier tires on the pavement, and the four-wheel disc brakes gives you superior stopping power.
