71 Monaro

By | 1 April 2004

Under the bonnet we've got
a rebored Chevy big block fitted-out
with Mallory ignition, Holley twin-carbs,
Genie extractors, high-stall converters,
a port-matched Edelbrock manifold on heads
running lumpy cams, roller rockers, MT covers
and cooled through a five-row baffled
cross-flow radiator with an electric
water-pump, braided hose and twin
thermo fans (but it still runs pretty hot)
red-lining at 4800 revs sending
250 brake horse-power belting through
a Turbo 400 transmission with a B&M shifter,
down the drive train to a 1:3.36 ratio
rear diff on the arse-end spinning fat
Firestones on 14-by-8 deep-dish rims,
smokin' it up, laying down a quarter mile
in 15.9 topping out at 108 miles
an hour.
       Cream premium-grain hide
interiors matched to wood detailing
compliment a high-style body finished
to concourse quality in fire-engine
red with more chrome than the sun
can shine on.
