1965 Dodge Coronet acceleration part 1
This is up to a little over 5000 rpm - roller valvetrain probably has over
6000 in it. Still working on a few bugs, so I haven't really pushed it
Engine is a '77 440 block (+.030) with KB 10.3:1 hyper pistons, Edelbrock
RPM heads, Comp 308R (262 @ .050/.575 lift) solid roller cam, Weiand tunnel
ram with Holley 4160 600 cfm carbs. Summit universal 3" X-pipe to
Magnaflow 11229 mufflers dumped at the axle. Mopar 8 3/4" (489) rear end
with 3.91 suregrip gears. Trans is a 727 built with Hughes parts, turbo Action "Cheetah" reverse manual valvebody,
and ACC Boss Hog 3600 stall converter. Color is a BASF single stage
urethane enamel called "Red."
Camera is a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 - you can watch the video in HD. I
accidentally left the wind filter setting on, so you don't get as good of
sound quality with this one.
Over the winter of 2007/2008, Big Red Ram was torn down and rebuilt. The
three year old 540 came out in favor of a pretty radical 580CI. The
transmission was freshen -- and the clutch was just redone prior to the
last race of last season. A new rear chunk, spool, and gears were bought
and set up, and the old one put in the trailer as a spare. Actually there's
a new transmission and shifter on order -- but it isn't in yet. We'll swap
that in and and make some bigger headers mid season.
This is the video of the motor getting fired up after put in the car.
Tomorrow, some loose ends will get finished and the car put on the ground
to get aligned and the wheelie bars installed. The day after we'll take it
to the track.
1965 Dodge Coronet Hemi AFX Funny Car Virtual Ride
Come go for a ride in this 528-Fuel-Injected-All Aluminum-Hemi-Powered
altered wheelbase AFX funny car. NHRA outlawed these lethally fast machines
for most of 1965, allowing them to eventually return due to large crowds
they draw. This one brings more cubes and electronic fuel injection to the
table. We raise hell in Dallas, Texas. Enjoy!
