Lot #68 - Imagine a stock '64 Lincoln Continental. Then add a NASCAR chassis, a 600hp 427 Motown engine and a T-100 4-speed manual transmission. Jesse and his crew did just that. "The biggest technical challenge was getting the old body off the chassis, as it was a unibody car. The steel was five layers thick in some places, so it took forever to plasma and saw away. I spent at least two full days of the build plasma-cutting that body off. They definitely knew how to build cars back in '64!" says racecar engineer Craig Jull. Jull smashed his tooth out on a grinder during the build of this car. His sweat and blood literally went into the creation of this monster.
