Engine: A 1971 Chevy 350 built by Ken Lipham provides power. Lots of good stuff have been added like a 488 Isky cam, Vortec heads and a 650CFM Quick Fuel carburetor. A set of reversed headers takes care of the exhaust. Power flows through a Turbo 350 to the rear end.
Suspension: The frame has been gone over by Dog House Garage and converted to right hand drive and modified to support a complete air ride setup. 55 Chevy front spindles were added along with a set of AFCO shocks. A custom 4 link setup installed by Steven completed the frame.
The air ride setup includes (2) ViAir 480 compressors, (4) 2600 air bags, and a very unique (4) fire extinguisher air tank setup on the back of the ride.
Paint: is provided by Mother Nature
Body Mods: This body was channeled 3” and a tongue and groove cedar top was torched and stained fills the roof. A pair of cool railroad signals were converted to headlights and mounted alongside the International Harvester grille.
Interior: The stock dash was replaced by a ¼” plate steel version and filled with Equis gauges. A stock car style steering wheel release ensures no one is driving off with this rod. A custom diamond plate console supports the one of a kind shifter and a cool chain cup holder.
Tires/wheels: A set of 15X7 Cragar wheels are mounted on 225/70/15 tires upfront and 33/1250/15 tires on the rear.
