Weiand Blower, Holley Carbs Power Gas Monkey Garage's Incredible Hi-Po Hauler

A '63 Ford Econoline pickup might not be the first thing that comes to mind for your next build, but in the hands of the guys from Gas Monkey Garage, there's nothing that can't be transformed into a bad-to-the-bone hot rod. Their Hot Wheels Hi-Po Hauler is amazing – so amazing that it was selected to be a Redline Edition car for Hot Wheels’ exclusive Red Line Club alongside another epic Gas Monkey Hot Wheels project, the Midas Monkey '68 Corvette Stingray. To create what's basically a Hot Wheels die cast come to life, Richard Rawlings, Aaron Kaufman, and the mechanical masterminds at Gas Monkey Garage completely disassembled an Econoline and basically scrapped everything but the body itself. As seen on The Discovery Channel's Fast N’ Loud show, they added a back half from Chassisworks and fabricated a custom front frame in-house, moving the driver's seat from the traditional position at the left of the cabin to the center, where the engine used to be.
