Reason for building: Built it for the 2016 Rust Rebellion Rat Rod Build-Off and took first place.
Who helped (friends): This was a family project including my dad, wife, and son.
How long have you been in the hobby? 6 years Previous rides: 39 Chevy Pickup Rat Rod
Club Affiliation: Dickie Productions
Name of your ride: Molly Why? Named after my favorite stock car I built.
Engine: A 1975 Chevy 350 was bored to 358 then filled with a solid lift cam, Vortec heads, air gap intake, and topped with a Holley 650 carb. This motor was built by my very good friend, Rob Vincent. The transmission is a faithful Turbo 350. The exhaust is a Lake side kit from Speedway James built himself.
Suspension: The frame has been “Z”ed by James and his father. Spindles are from a 52 Chevy 3100 and a set of buggy springs complete the front end. The rear end has been modified for a 3 link and the ride is courtesy of pro Shocks off Jame’s stock car.
Paint: is the original patina
Body Mods: This body was originally a four door car. We removed the two doors then body has been channeled 4” and chopped 3” by James himself.
Interior: The stock dash remains and is filled with Sun Pro gauges. The seats are made of plywood behind a three spoke racing steering wheel.
Tires/wheels: A set of 15X7 steel wheels are mounted on 235/75/125 Sailun tires.
