Progress continues on a full in-house custom build of a 1972 Olds 442. The new engine is an LS 427 and a 6 speed manual transmission. The new rearend is a Ford 9”. There are tons of other custom upgrades going into this car. Another bumper to bumper full custom build that’s underway is a 1972 Chevy Blazer. The brand new crate engine will be a super late model GM LT5 V-8 with 710 factory horsepower and its matching 8 speed automatic transmission. The frame and suspension are being fully upgraded and it gets a complete new custom interior. We’ll have more updates as it moves through the restoration process. Up on a lift, is a 1972 Chevelle with a blown 454 big block for power. The Vintage Iron crew removed the body from the frame, added some new bars and fully boxed in the frame for a lot of additional chassis reinforcement. The Chevelle also got new Wilwood disc brakes on all four corners and a new Moser differential with positraction. Grammas 1970 International Scout had its rare 304 V-8 engine and automatic transmission removed and cleaned up. While it was out, they rebuilt the front suspension, and added new power front disc brakes. Before the engine went back in, the crew fully cleaned and professionally detailed the engine compartment. An amazing 1971 Plymouth Cuda had just come into the shop needing some mechanical upgrades, including a new manifold for its Kenn Bell supercharger for its 426 Hemi engine. They will also be fixing a minor oil leak and do the final tuning for street driving.
