Description Started as a 1969 "S" Code big block car. The rust-free body was placed on a rotisserie where it was bead blasted and full frame installed.

The scoop is a BOSS 429 style increased by 1" to allow for the Kaase intake height. New Painless wiring throughout. The firewall was smoothed and new inner fenders were created to allow the installation of this massive engine. Heidts front suspension with power steering. Heidts rear 4-link suspension. Heidts stiffening bar with built-in drive shaft loops. BOSS 557 engine built by Bob Lathrop of Performance Unlimited. We started with a 460 block bored and stroked, forged crank, rods and pistons.

These were port matched by Bob with Kaase's new intake, valve covers and wires. Custom made headers.
