Wow does this Hemi have a story! It has a Keith Black 426 that was used by Candies & Hughes hall of fame race team. Recently rebuilt and restored as a high performance street car. Has high end upgraded everything- brakes, trans, and chassis etc. There is a lot to read here, but this car has a lot to offer.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Built to be a street beast. I spoke to Tesar Engineering, the engine builder and they were kind enough to send me the dyno sheet. It is rated at 772 horsepower and 637 lbs of torque! K Black and Candies Hughes is stamped on the motor, Tesar explained it's interesting history. It is a Keith Black engine that was raced by Candies and Hughes hall of fame race team back in the day. Tesar Engineering was established 1966 building high performance motors. They use cutting edge technology and have an incomparable amount of experience. They set out to build this engine to be bad ass and yet a street car. It's now 434 cubic inches, has Aries pistons, Comp cam, APR bolts, Littlefield 8:71 blower, dual custom built Holley carbs and custom built headers.
Has custom fuel system with braided hoses all the way to the tank, a regulator, custom pump and filter too. Custom fuel cell is relocated to trunk. Has MSD ignition with boost retard. Has aluminum radiator, shroud, water pump and overflow. Electric pusher fan and motor mounted fan keep it cool. Has oversized custom made aluminum oil pan and external oil cooler.
Of course the motor is the centerpiece that everyone wants to see. So it is fully dressed in polished parts. The engine bay is painted white, firewall is smooth and there are tubular support bars to prevent body twist.
UNDERSIDE: Upfront is totally upgraded with tubular suspension, chromoly tubular K member, coil over shocks and a fat sway bar. Has power rack & pinion steering system. In back there are CalTrac tubular control arms, new split single leaf springs and adjustable gas shocks. Has a custom built Spicer 8 3/4 rear end with Richmond 3.91 posi gears. It is tied together with tubular frame connectors.
Has performance built 727 TorqueFlite trans by Trans Specialties with TCI converter, manual valve body and deep aluminium pan.
It has a fat Flowmaster exhaust all the way out the back with crossover pipe. All 4 corners have Wilwood disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors.
It is rock solid underneath. Floors, rockers, lower 1/4s are super clean metal.
EXTERIOR: Super clean, dry body. Even the factory spot welds are visible on the 1/4 panel lip. Completely repainted a smooth glossy finish. The chrome and trim was restored by Calco plating. New windshield. Fiberglass hood with pins was neatly cut out for the blower.
New Cragar wheels at all 4 corners. 7x15 in front, 10x15 neatly tucked in the rear wheel wells. Has Mickey Thompson tires.
INTERIOR: Is completely redone. Legendary upholstery, new cushions, door panels, headliner, visors, carpet, embroidered mats etc. Professionally installed rear roll provides multiple improvements- safety, adds rigidity for better handling and it looks cool! Does still have full back seat. Original console houses the billet Hurst shifter and monster tachometer. Neatly installed in the dash are Pro Comp gauges. Has nice leather wrapped steering wheel too. Battery is relocated to the trunk with billet hold down. Has battery cut off switch.
CONCLUSION: Starting with an extra clean rust free car, one heck of muscle car was built. There is well over $100,000 invested. The motor alone is worth more than half of the sale price. Top notch upgraded components throughout make it a great driver. The cool factor is off the charts!
