The Last HEMI - Segment 1- The Journey Begins
In 1978, a 14 year old boy on his bicycle noticed the back end of a '71 Charger R/T sticking out of a garage. The HEMI badges were gone but, being the son of a racer, he saw the black body stripes and knew there was something special about the car. After getting some pointers from his dad, the boy snuck in and popped the hood. Sure enough, there was a 426 HEMI under there. The journey was officially underway. After some door to door detective work, the boy found the owner and made initial contact. Though the Charger wasn't for sale, it was an important first step. For most of the next decade, the boy would periodically check in to see if the car was available, even offering to trade a clean 440 Charger at one point. The owner simply wouldn't budge. By the 1990s, the boy, now in his mid-twenties, had bought and sold several vintage Mopars but he'd never forgotten the Charger in his hometown. Through a chance encounter at a garage sale, he found out the Dodge was finally for sale. The owner had turned several buyers away but welcomed the boy, remembering the years of calls and attempts to buy the car. A price was agreed upon and the Charger finally came home. Throughout the early 1990s, the car was shown in its unrestored state while awaiting its turn to be rebuilt. This thing was a monster on the show circuit. Luckily we have some photos as proof! While going through the car, he located TWO broadcast sheets that were found fully intact. It showed a build date of June 18th, 1971 -- nearly 2 weeks after any other HEMI car on record. After months of research, the boy was proven correct for believing there was something special about the car back in 1978. It was the final HEMI car ever produced. Though there were already plans to restore the Charger, this new information upped the ante considerably. The owner got in touch with the team at RKM Performance Center and, together, it was decided to go all in. Go ahead and bookmark the page or visit TheLastHEMI.com. This is a restoration you won't want to miss.
1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great over 60 years ago.
Custom 1972 Ford Econoline Mystery Machine Van
A few of you had asked to see this custom 72 Ford Econoline, so here it is. As you can see, they have painted it in dark brown metallic, with the Mystery Machine Graphics from Scooby Doo. It's powered by the original inline six cylinder engine. It's riding on a nice set of Cragar SS chrome mags, with a fairly new set of white letter tires. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
