Tony and Gillian Argentino - The Hitman - blown alcohol Chev
Tony and Gillian Argentino's 1936 Chev drag racer is known as "The Hitman",
and is a theme car that represents history from America, which now resides
in Perth, Western Australia. With its curvy shapes and vivacious body, the
car represents beauty, charm and character, all whilst the tough
supercharged and injected alcohol burning engine provides power for the
Recent testing of the car got Tony familiar with all of the levers and
buttons, and the crew kept the car working good enough through two
successive race days and acquired several personal best times along the
way. When testing a car of this caliber, power and driver need to
familiarize and adjust, and the team was exceptional in achieving what they
have in just three outings.
Hitman Racing is also heavily involved off the track where Gillian takes
care of marketing the car. She has been involved with the establishment of
Supercharged Outlaws in Western Australia, and more info and merchandise is
available from http://www.superchargedoutlawswa.com.au
Tony has been racing on and off since he was 17 (23 years) starting in
street, then modified until Outlaws started in WA and is best known for
their previous car, a 1934 Ford 3 window coupe altered. This Hitman car was
purchased from Terry Hall of Terry Hall Race Car Bodies in Vermont USA. It
was running Pro-Mod and the Super Chevy series and has a best time of 6.30
@ 220mph. The Argentino's purchased the car as a roller, and are using the
engine and gearbox from their old '34. The car is a 1936 Chevy Master
(carbon fibre), it has a chrome-moly chassis, 442 cubic inch Chevy (iron
block) and the engine is built and maintained by Tony. Induction comes from
a 14-71 Littlefield hi-helix retro Supercharger, it has an FTC converter and 2-speed
Powerglide, and the rear end is a Mark Williams modular rear with Strange
Ultracase 4.56 gears and 40 spline axles.
Tony and Gillian would like to thank all of the crew for their help,
Kwinana Performance for parts and the hands on effort of the Boss and staff
who also double as Crew. Graham, Jan and Neil from Southside Engine Centre,
FTC Race Converters for looking after the converter and gearbox, Spud at
DJW Engineering for making all the nice mods to get the running gear to fit
and making nifty things as needed. Fuchs Oils for supplying the oils and
race fuel, Genie Exhaust, and The
Moving Man Removals.
