Its Alive
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.

It has been my passion for 5+ years. I went completely through the car to make it my own and to make sure it is 100% and well tuned and sorted. It is turn key and ready to enjoy. ***No expense spared*** Drag raced it 1 x on 1/4 mile and 2 x on 1/8 mile - just for fun but it is super fast. Mostly take it to local cruise nights and car shows, I drive it to work on nice days, and I took it to Carlisle several times. It won 1st place at the Carlisle Mopar weekend fun field! Well sorted and in excellent condition, turn key and enjoy! Street legal, registered and inspected. Pump gas. Needs nothing. I just had engine freshened with all new bearings, rings (stock bore) had the heads done over, brand new 3500 stall converter and 4.11 gears (more street friendly than the 4.56's it had). I also had a custom 3" Exhaust system installed with cross over and tailpipes. New Mopar dual batteries. Literally less than 10 miles on all new parts - still breaking it in. When we tore down the engine we were shocked to find a top fuel billet crank. We upgraded to Indy roller rockers to match the roller cam. Super cool car it is the hit of any show. The interior is period correct racer with vintage seats, full dash and roll bar, but no carpet or door panels.
