Paint: BASF Glasurit 90-Line Tennessee Whiskey Gold gloss and Daytona Sand satin

Build Time: 1000 man-hours of paint prep

Engine: Boss 429 complete with a rare Ford experimental mechanical fuel-injection intake converted to EFI by Rad Rides

Highlights: The Talladega was given a Holman Moody-inspired body treatment as it was widened by five inches, with three inches removed from the front fenders and an inch taken from the wheelbase. The body was Coke-bottled, meaning the rear quarters and front fenders are wider than stock and bulge out relative to the rocker panels. The grille, taillight bezels and other trim parts were CNC’d from large chunks of billet aluminum. The engine is a real deal Boss 429 complete with a rare Ford experimental mechanical fuel-injection intake converted to EFI by Rad Rides. The chassis is a converted Art Morrison unit with C5 Corvette front suspension and a Detroit Speed four-link in the rear with a Watts link and a Mark Williams 9-inch axle. The body was treated to more than one thousand man-hours of paint prep and finished in a BASF Glasurit 90-Line Tennessee Whiskey Gold gloss and Daytona Sand satin paint.
