Default My Shaker N-96 1970 Challenger R/T

Heres my 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, 440SIXPACK, Hurst Pistol Grip, Dana Trak-Pak, 1 of 184 Built, Shaker Hood car. NO expense was spared. Many parts were N.O.S. the engine, 18-spine transmission,Dana 60 are original to the car but restored. The wheels and tires are not original, they were 14"magnums. I installed 15x7 Ralleyes with B.F. goodrich rubber. The suspension was "scienced out" with various parts by Firm Feel, Just suspension, Moog. The engine was built by SS/AA racer Matt Hensley, the tranny by Mr. Herb McCandless, Keisler parts, paint and body by MuscleCar Restorations.

yes, its a street animal! Its built for Torque and makes good H.P. MoparMuscle Magazine will be doing a sixpack dyno test in an upcoming issue. The R/T is currently at the shop and they had a rep from the magazine there,(they had their Project Valiant done there), and my car was run on the dyno after installing promax six pack metering blocks. It will be in that issue complete with dyno numbers and engine specs.As far as how it rides and drives on the street, it has a very "stiff" suspension with RoadRace torsion bars chromemoly lower control arm studs with black poly bushings and sway bars front and rear with Edelbrock IAS shocks, it corners very well, flat with little body roll! BTW with manual 20:1 FirmFeel box,and a 4-speed, it can be a handful and violent at low speed, just the way I like it!I have driven many Vipers and even though this wouldnt hold a candle to one, It drives like an older viper with a massive torque curve and pulls like its nobodys business

To be honest with you 1Badmirada I thought Fred,(shop tech.), said 400H.P. and 405 Tq. but he was also talking on the cell phone and was also discussing the other cars they were going to run that day including the project Holley RoadRuner with the INDY motor. I also cant hear worth a damn on them little buggers. But the last time we talked they were still working on my carbs? So I am gonna guess 350 H.P. 380 TQ. RWHP I would be happy with that also the Mustang 1750 is a tough dyno a stock 426 Hemi does about 340 H.P. and 380 torque a viper about the same except it makes a little more torque. Its a tough dyno!! The main reason, Mirada, to run it in the first place was to get rid of a nasty bog from the sixpack, especially going to WOT, the transition, the pro-max parts are awesome. The man to talk to at Pro-max is Ben, I ordered the complete six-pack kit which is the billet metering blocks, billet rear baseplate with canted A/F screws to allow adjustability without removing the carbs, a fistfull of jets and no-stick Holley gaskets. It cost 421.00 delivered to your door, Beating that 428 Cobra-Jet or SS454 = Priceless

i know that the six packs were a tuning nightmare...

i still need to get my car on a dyno, but its so expensive in our area for dyno runs...the 150 that it costs for a trip to the dyno buys good parts for the demon...

I fully understand that man, I have so much in the car now that I wanted the carbs and fuel curve to be spot on! I have in N.O.S. trim what a new Harley Fat Boy would cost new, with accessories! No joke! I lucked in the car anyways and had to have the best job posible done to it. The N.O.S. chrome ralley mirrors were 1500.oo ! Today add another thou to that. I got mine in 2001 which at the time was a "bargain" It is getting to the point that only a professional,(doctor, lawyer ect..), can afford it. Hell Im just an old retired Federal Prison Guard!!
