In just 8 weeks, GAS and Galpin's Classic Auto Service took a 1968 "junk yard dog" and created an awesome custom. First, the team completely dismantled the car, then refurbished, rebuilt and modified each and every component of the vehicle. Powering this custom is a Barrington Engines custom BOSS 351 engine producing roughly 450HP, backed up by an original Ford 4-speed transmission rebuilt and modified for road racing. Power is transmitted through a Currie 9-inch rear end with heavy-duty axles and 3:89 Trac-Lok. The vehicle also incorporates a Total Control Products coil over front suspension system, Maeco Motorsports modified road racing rear suspension system, VariShock adjustable shocks, McLeod racing clutch, handmade custom grille and aluminum bed cover. Keeping it to the ground are American Racing 17—9.5 427 Cobra style wheels with Nitto NT05 315/35 ZR 17 tires. To stop the machine, Galpin's Classic Auto Service and GAS installed a Wilwood 4-wheel disc brake system. The interior features a custom roll cage, Scat Elite bucket seats with a 5-point racing seatbelt system, and to keep it old school, a factory original AM radio. This creation has gone from scrap yard to custom show car!
