BIG BLOCK BRUISER


Andrew Bristow bought this old Super Stock Dart from Dandy Engines as a very used race car.

He bought it off the Mopar Market about 10 years back, and after returning from the Speed Week Salt flat racing decided it was time to run “the line”.

The car runs a 500cui Big Block, with full manual 727 with trans brake, cleaned up edelbrock heads  and a roller cam.

The block is a std 440 block with a 4.150 eagle crank scat rods, ross pistons, 12.5 to 1 comp. crow roller cam and crane roller rockers.

The pipes came with the car.  The diff ratio is unknown at this stage although Andrew guesses it’s 4.11 : 1.

Other good shit includes 35 spline Mark Williams axles, a chrome moly mancini racing tail shaft.

Wheels are 15×14 with a 4.5 backspace Micky Thompson Sportsman Pros.

Ignition is an MSD 7al.

The engine sucks the sky and stars in through a 1050 Dominator Holley carb and M1 manifold.

It recently made 474.3 hp at the tyres.

Andrew hopes to have it ready for for performance car mania 2011.

Pics run from “Before” to “Now”.

(And remember – if you have a new build or even an old and faithful you’d like to see on the Web, feel free to email the details to me at : ratpatrol at optusnet dot com dot au )
