Don Garlits - 1964 426 Hemi build CACKLEFEST Swamp Rat 8
During the work on HEMI: A History of Chrysler's Iconic V-8 in Competition, I had a chance to spend a day with Don Garlits as he put together a cackle engine for the 2014 season. Providentially, this was going into the replica of Swamp Rat 8, the first Garlits dragster to use the 426 engine architecture. As you will see, the results could not have been better....
