  • Vehicle Overview

    70 Impala wagon, with Scat Stroked 496, Weiand Supercharger, Holley 4781, Edelbrock heads, Comp Cams valvetrain, 4L60E trans. 12 Bolt rear with Auburn Posi & 3.73:1 gear set. Partially restored interior, with Auto Meter Stack dash, & Auto Meter Wideband and Vac/Boost gauge. Metco Motorsprts rear upper & lower billet control arms, UMI adjsutable Panhard bar, Tubular upper front control arms, rebuilt lower front control arms. This vehicle is a commuter, fun car, attends cruise nights, and a few car shows. It also competes in burnout competitions. Its been to the track once where it ran a 13.001 with a broken 2nd gear in the trans. One day I will have it back to the track to see what it really runs. People love the 3rd row seat as much as they like seeing a supercharged big block under the hood. This car is a real conversation piece.

    Future Plans

    Upgrade from the cheap disc brake conversion kit, to a factory disc brake set up Change over to fuel injection. Try to achieve any fuel mileage figure that ends with "teen". I drive this vehicle, so fuel mileage is important when cruising, hence the upgrade to the overdrive trans. We are almost there, and without sacrificing power at that.
