True 426 HEMI Horsepower 'The Keeper'
Welcome to Nick's Garage! Nick is just getting started on YouTube, but he's no novice when it comes to building engines for some of the most exciting cars anywhere. Nick wants to get things started here with a special build, so he's letting you in on the rebirth of his own classic 426 HEMI. This power plant made a name for itself 5 decades ago, and now we're all going to watch and listen as it is brought back to life and then pushed beyond the red line. Chrysler claimed 425 horsepower back in the day, let's find out what it makes today as Nick goes looking for True 426 HEMI horsepower!
a ride in a 1971 426 hemi charger last426
This is my pride and joy. The last year of the 426 hemi. I am the second owner and, as the movie will embarrassingly show, I treat this car like a cupcake. It is grandma's hemi with column shift 727. I asked why the original owner ordered it with that and he said, "just to save money." The car cost about 5,000 with about 1,000 of that the engine and "required" options. It is absolutely stock and now even has 14 x 6 black wheels on it. Only 47,000 miles on this beauty and you can see more of it at http://www.marlia.com. Here is a video of the engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl2e1NIcBFs and yes, the car weighs around 4,100 pounds.

My uncle Cal breaking in the 528 Hemi before it gets dropped into a 1971 Plymouth Scamp race car. Sorry about the turning of the frame during the video, my camera auto turns when I turn the camera. The video will definitely make up for that! Enjoy!!
Awesome Sound of 426 Hemi Cuda Convertible Running
This is just a short clip of a 426 Hemi Cuda idling and revving a bit. I hope to bring you a full video on this awesome machine shortly. It's a 1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible powered by the 426 Hemi, backed by a four-speed manual with a pistol grip shifter. Thanks for watching!
