Pro Truck National Ice Exhibition at Anchor Bay
Richard's Auto Parts held a little exhibition in Anchor Bay, Michigan. We
didn't know what to expect, I don't think they did either. ;We were treated
to a great test and tune show from BAD Company team members Mike Page and
Ben Dozeman. They brought along some friends and then those familiar quads
showed up and strutted their stuff.
Blown mud truck
***This video was taken while the truck was still under construction***440
with 671 blower, Dynoed 680 horse@ 6600 RPM. We
decided to test out my transmission , the first run I think I accidently
bumped it to neutral, second run was clean all the way through 3rd gear.
Good thing I dont plan to shift in the mud anyway, its just nice to know
things are working properly! I need to upgrade to 70 shafts in the front
before I lock it! Heres a couple links to the videos of this in the mud:
133081 / 1964 Plymouth Belvedere

Listed in Darrell Davis' book of original Max Wedge serial numbers, this
car is one of only fourteen 426/4-speed Belvederes produced for the 1964
model year. If you're looking for a no-nonsense pavement pounder that's
fast, raw and ready to brawl, you've found your next heavyweight!
An extension of legendary designer Elwood Engel's modernist rescue of
Plymouth's increasingly eccentric product line, the firm's newly downsized
B-Body did almost as well on Chrysler's sale charts as it did on America's
drag strips and super speedways. This particular Belvedere, a Stage III Max
Wedge car sold new at Powell Plymouth in Jacksonville, Florida, was likely
ordered by an aspiring racer who whipped a few people on the street and
then settled into a life in the slow lane. Unlike the majority of these
badass Mayflower warriors, which were purchased almost exclusively for
sanctioned drag racing, this car has never had its front inner aprons cut
for Exhaust headers, never had a roll
cage installed, and never had its rear wheel wells tubbed for oversize drag
slicks. In fact, when this Plymouth's true heritage was discovered in the
late 1990s, the car had been mechanically and cosmetically transformed into
an all-steel, 90,000 mile slushbox special. Naturally its enlightened
savior knew he had something special, so he began a frame-off restoration
by welding in new floorpans from a clean donor car and hanging new quarters
from a high quality aftermarket supplier. Next, when a trademark aluminum
front end was finally located, it was re-skinned, thoroughly worked, and
perfectly aligned with its new body. And finally, after much parts research
and even more parts searching, a wet-looking coat of correct Chrysler code
P Ruby Red paint was buried in a thick clearcoat shell that shines like a
trophy on race day!
Gently lift this Plymouth's Ruby Red hood and you'll find an date-correct
Max Wedge V8 that wears an authentic 2406730-1 casting number, a December
(12) 10th (10) of 1963 (03) date stamp, and a 1964 V-series (V) Maximum
Performance (MP) High Compression (HC) 426 cubic inch (426) engine stamp.
Pushing a brutal 12.5 to 1 compression, and currently Dyno-ed at 486 horsepower and 469 lb./ft.
of torque, this Mopar monster has built a hard-fought reputation for being
one of the best competition motors ever created.
That high powered big block churns torque through a tough A833 4-speed
manual transmission to an original, factory-narrowed 8.75 rear end. During
the restoration that transmission, which is a correct piece that's dated
slightly after the car was assembled, received new bearings, new synchros,
a new clutch and pressure plate and a correct cast steel bellhousing. And
that rear end, which rides below original factory frame weights, was fitted
with a new Sure Grip differential and tall 4.10 gears. At the ends of that
stellar drivetrain, an original torsion bar front and leaf spring rear
suspension, which has been completely rebuilt from top to bottom, helps
increase both drivability and track times. At the sides of that stellar
drivetrain, original Max Wedge Exhaust
pipes whisk spent gases to either manual dumps or factory replacement turbo mufflers. And all this first rate
hardware proudly stands on a set of 14 inch body-matched steel wheels which
spin fresh 205/75 Hurst radials and 215/75 Hurst cheater slicks around
pristine stainless center caps.
Take a look inside the car and you'll find a spacious and airy environment
which has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort. Top dead center
is a pair of red bench seats that are lined with new padding, stitched with
NOS covers and accented by bright stainless trim. Below those seats, new
black carpet does an excellent job of highlighting the car's original, and
re-chromed, Hurst shifter. In front of those seats, a two-tone dash hangs a
silver '49 Plymouth-inspired instrument panel next to original radio and
heater deletes. And in front of the driver, a restored steering wheel spins
a red rim around a pristine chrome horn ring.
This aluminum-nosed Belvedere is a super cool piece of muscle car history
that's easy to imagine as the focal point of a sunny 60s track day. Call,
