Muscle Car Suspension Upgrade on a Pontiac LeMans! - Hot Rod Garage Ep. 6
On this episode of Hot Rod Garage Presented by Lincoln Tech, we turn a lowridin’ 1965 Pontiac LeMans into a corner-carving muscle car with a budget-minded suspension system, a quick-ratio steering box, and disc brakes. Classic Performance Products supply the parts, which bolt in place and result in dramatic improvements to the handling of Hot Rod Magazine staffer Brandan Gilllogly’s car. Once the LeMans is sorted we work on our 1973 Chevy Ramp Truck during a Dickies Roadkill Project Car Update. The electrical system has seen better days and so we play detective to trace a battery drain and replace both batteries with new units from AC Delco. We wrap up this episode with a question and answer session with Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger as they ponder the mysteries of the universe and cars in general. HOT ROD Garage appears every fourth Thursday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/HOTRODGarageShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com
Pontiac GTO - 520+ HP Restomod!
Hot and nasty goat with a surprise under the hood. Vintage 1965. Shut 'em down, little GTO!
134006 / 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cz3ncr4 This striking '67 Chevelle pro-tourer, with its 468 cubic inch V8, tweaked air suspension and completely custom interior, is the perfect piece for the muscle car fan who wants the best of absolutely everything! The beneficiary of a professional frame-off restoration that was completed in June of 2012, this slick Chevy hardtop features a seamless custom appearance that's highlighted by an immaculate coat of mirror-like paint. Take one look down the sides of this Chevelle's rock-solid body and it becomes obvious that great care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to better-than-factory fit. Step closer to the car's hypnotic finish and check out its straight and ripple-free surfaces which are a product of both rust-free sheetmetal and high quality prep work. Grab the car's well-adjusted hood and feel how smoothly it closes to provide an excellent fit which is set off by a precise gaps and a glossy clearcoat shell. Now, step back and watch it all add up to one very well-done pro-tourer which is built to exacting specifications and features a great combination of skilled workmanship and first-rate detailing. The Chevrolet division has always represented performance to a virtual army of car guys. But unlike their luxuriously smooth Impala brethren, Chevelles manifests that performance as raw attitude and brute force. Lift the hood of this sinister pro-tourer and you'll find a 468 cubic inch big block V8 which makes killer power and produces the kind of throaty growls that elicit an immediate 'deer in the headlights' look. The more things change, the more they stay the same as this 21st century A-Body kicks into go-mode thanks to a rugged M22 Rock Crusher. As you can probably tell from our pictures, that proven pebble pounder is suspended by a fully rebuilt chassis that's fitted with fresh air bags, modern power steering, a traditional 12 bolt rear end and giant drilled and slotted rotors that are seized by bright red calipers. And putting the power to the pavement is a slick set of Boss Motorsports 338s which spin 235/40ZR18 front and 275/35ZR20 rear Nexen N7000 radials around chrome lug nuts and SuperFinish lips. Inside this stunning Chevelle you'll find a completely custom interior that's tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats, modern units that have been swiped from a donor car and recovered in faux ostrich skin, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. At the front of those seats, a custom dash hangs a sweet set of Auto Meter American Muscle gauges above a control panel for the car's Nostalgic Air Parts air conditioning and a bright screen for the car's Power Acoustik CD/DVD/Navigation system. At the base of that dash, a custom black console props a leather-booted Hurst shifter in front of four power window switches and a small leather armrest. In front of the driver a chrome tilt steering column, which is complete with a full set of billet stalks, prominently displays a custom chrome steering wheel. And behind the passengers, a fully-finished trunk features premium carpet, custom paneling and two large Vibe amplifiers. In summary, this '67 Chevelle represents creative engineering at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with no-excuses, no-limits performance.
