One of the house specialties at Tempe Speed is doing General Motors LS based engine and transmission conversions. They have installed that type of engine into an amazing variety of different vehicles, including several years ago into a 1957 Ford Ranch Wagon that I once owned. And yes, they also do Ford and Dodge/Chrysler engine swaps as well. In the recent past, they converted a 1989 Dodge pickup from 360 V-8 power to a modern Dodge/ Chrysler Hemi V-8 engine. The 360
V-8 only had 68,000 miles and ran good. The shop is now installing that engine into a 1973 Dodge pickup that had a worn out 318 V-8. Also in the works, is a 1964 Lincoln Continental that has been converted to LS3 power and 4L70 GM automatic overdrive transmission. It was also fitted with a completely new Hot Rod Air A/C system using the existing vent openings. A 1987 Chevy long bed pickup is being converted into a short bed pickup. A nice 1981 GM short bed frame has been purchased for the swap. The truck will also be fitted with coil-overs and tubular arms in front and the rear gets a new 9” Ford with 4-link suspension. All new American Auto Wire wiring and new Auto Meter gauges will be installed as well. Tempe Speed removed the 350 V-8 and 4 speed manual transmission from a 1968 Chevy half ton pickup. It was converted to a 5.3 liter LS engine and 4L60 automatic transmission. It also gets complete new Vintage Air A/C, and new Dakota Digital RDX gauges that retain the look of the original gauges. And, a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass has been converted to LS3 V-8 power and a modern 6 speed 6L80E automatic transmission. The Olds came in without a dash, the shop has found a good replacement dash. Tempe Speed & Performance also does other repairs and performance upgrades specializing on the older cars and trucks. Call them at 480-921-4170. Please mention Roddin’ Arizona when you call.
