Ye-Beast after forty-two years on the road with a V8 engine conversion - including a high perf. Chevy 327, 235hp, a Chevy 350, 350hp, & a Chevy 383 CID making 470hp with 500 ft-lbs torque. Transmissions started with a Muncie 4-spd & finally a Tremec 3550 5-spd with a .68 fifth gear ratio. Very smooth cruising at 100mph - about 2800rpm. It is a project of continual upgrades to new technologies. Current upgrade projects have been the rear suspension upgrade to 3 inch wider track & higher spring rate, followed by the front suspension upgrade & disc brakes conversion, and finally a conversion to HID 8000K HI/LOW BI-XENON beam headlights & all LED running lights.
