It has new .020 trw forged pistons with a true flattop design and chrome moly rings from hastings. It has a crane solid roller camshaft with slightly more lift and duration than the factory hipo cam. Don’t worry it sounds identical..nice chop and still get the solid clatter from the valve train but with much more reliability and more horsepower taking into account for todays oils which are zinc deficient and can be harsh on flat Tappet cams. Double roller timing chain and a high volume melling oil pump along with all clevite bearings round off the bottom end. Heads have been worked significantly . They have had larger stainless 2.02 intake and 1.60 exhaust valves added along with hardened seats and a 3 angle valve job. Intake and exhaust ports have been ported and gasket matched . New hardened pushrods were used along with guide plates and arp screw in studs . We also added Crane aluminum roller rocker arms . Has correct aluminum water pump, hipo fan and exhaust manifolds. Does not have correct hipo dual points distributor as we are still looking for a correct one.  Has rechromed original valve covers, and air cleaner with correct gold base.  Also in the engine bay is a NOS fan shroud and a correct and original to the car C4ZZ part numbered radiator for a 4 speed car (no trans cooler)…Try finding one of those!          Horsepower came in at 343hp 365lbft of torque.


 Transmission has been gone through adding new gaskets and synchronizers as well as a new hurst shifter. Has a hayes oem replacement clutch kit with Timken throwout bearing.  Has a new driveshaft that has been built with spicer u joints, and clean steel tubing. We took and clear coated the shaft and added the correct paint stripes. This will give a correct bare metal look but wont rust! So it stays looking correct and clean. This shaft was built and balanced by the guys at Carolina driveline.

 Rear axle is correct 9 inch with 350 gear set factory trac lok differential and correct hipo pinion support plate and snubber.

It has correct placement foglight switch with correct wiring that will turn on tail lights when foglights are turned on . Correct foglight wire hole placement for power feed to foglights.

  Now for one question im sure all have. The rocker molidings. We belive that this car was one of a few to get rocker moldings added to a GT by its original dealer. It had these when we found the car and they where definitely on the car a long time. After agonizing over it we decided to restore it this way as we fell this is how the original owner “bought “ it and because with this color combo we feel it looks better. Please remember this car is not built  to the point of being judged for points. It has been built to be a 99% correct driver with a few upgrades that could be easily reversed.
