John & Robin Whitcore's '71 S
Well, after 2 years of smashed knuckles, lots of tears (all 3 of us), and John
ruining his "good" clothes....."oh honey, I'll just be a second, I won't get
dirty".....we present the fruit of our labor:
-455 bored .030, 10.5:1 comp.
-Crane Valve train components, .520 lift cam
-Holly 750 Double Pumper with Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake
-TH 400, built for street and strip
-2 1/2'' Flowmaster exhaust with Blackjack headers
-Factory AC.....It's Florida man!
-Factory power windows.....too cool
-BF Goodrich 245 75's all the way around
-posi rear with 3.42:1 gears
Robin and myself did this entire restoration ourselves for the exception of
the paint/body work and tranny. We did the tear down, interior, trunk pan,
engine, tuning, detailing and all the stressing out (mostly waiting for our
friends to finish the paint and body work). Jody, now 19 months, supervised
the entire operation (even from the womb).
We're guessing she's making somewhere around 400+ horse right now and is
definitley a whole lot of fun to drive. You can find her at the world famous
Saturday Night Cruise at Old Town (Kissimmee, FL) almost most every Saturday
night. Stop by and say "hi" if you're there.
