The vehicle is powered by a IH 392 V8 engine with ported 345 cylinder heads to boost compression. The camshaft is a Comp 268 grind helping feed the multiport fuel injection system. A custom single serpentine belt rotates all the accessories.
Taking care of the gear shifting is a B&M 700R4 transmission that transmits power to a custom Dana 60 rear axle with a Powr-Lok and 4.30 gears.
Keeping the vehicle suspended is a custom air ride suspension with a custom 4-link suspension in the rear and custom independent front suspension from Scott’s HotRods. Rear 13” Wilwood brakes with six piston calipers and front 12” with four piston calipers with hydroboost assist stop the red sled in a hurry.
The interior is also customized with the front seats from a Volvo and the rears from a Honda pilot. Even the rear floor from the Honda Pilot was grafted into the Travelall so that the rear seats can be quickly removed for access.
The dash has been smoothed out with Auto Meter gauges installed to replace the originals. Vintage Air heating and air conditioning system is mounted under the dash to keep the air temp comfortable.
We look forward to the competition and bringing home the build off trophy for 2019.
