After 4 ½ years of ownership and 7,000 miles, Gordon decided it was time for some upgrades and more power. The car was fitted with the “Big Brake” upgrade, racing shocks and springs, Kevlar clutch, MDL release system, Quick Time Bell Housing, and the engine was rebuilt making an incredible 620 HP on pump gas.
Engine modifications included Callies Forged Crank and Rods, Coated Diamond Pistons, custom ground Comp solid lifter cam, Jessel shaft rocker system, Bill Wilson head work, and a custom built Gary Williams carburetor. To say the car is now a rocket ship is an understatement. 620 HP in a car that weighs 2480 lbs. gives a pounds to horsepower ratio of 4.0!! What a ride.. and it sounds even cooler, if that's possible.
