Driving Blown 454 32 Ford Coupe Hotrod
Driving home from a cruise in. 1932 Ford 3 Window Fiberglass Coupe. Bored
.030 454 Chevy. Yeah I know, a Chevy in a Ford just ain't right but I love
big block Chevies but also love the look of an old Ford. It has a Ford 9"
with spool which I want to switch out to a posi unit this winter, 4 wheel
disc brakes, rack & pinon steering, 4 bar with coil over suspension,
Edelbrock carbs, GMC 671 blower with Weiand drive and a turbo 400 trans. It's always driven and never
trailered. It even has a trailer hitch on the back. Lots of road chips and
nicks but it was bought to be enjoyed and driven, it even has air
conditioning and a CD player for added creature comforts.
Was a lifelong dream to own one just like the models I used to build when I
was a wee lad but never in my wildest dreams ever thought I'd actually own
one. At 57 I still can't help but have a big grin while cruising down the
road, especially when pulling up beside some young fella in one of the
newer imports at a redlight. Can almost hear them thinking when seeing all
motor setting beside them... Holy Sh%$ ....... They can sure get gobs of
HP and great 1/4 mile times from new technology but it's hard to beat
ground pounding old school horsepower that rattles the
windows when idling thru town.
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.
The Blower Truck
This truck is a twenty two year old hotrod. That is correct blown for 22
years. It was parked for 7 years until this video was born.
