Its probably the best sounding small blocks i ever heard if i remember from the sign on it at the shows its like a 358 i beleive with over 700hp just amazing the owner is an engine builder from around Columbus ohio.
Thought id share the details on this car are remarkable!

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

Thanks for the reply!
Actually great i can tell im not 20 any more been burning the midnight oil on this fab work.
Actually finallllllly got my hood mounted and working just have to fab everything building a custom car is sooooo time consuming. Heres a few pics.
I da'ed the body with some 80 grit to get started on the body work but this hood has taken about a week or so to get close.
Have to rebrace the bottom of the hood and it will be smoothed up to. Hinges are working well thought i wasnt going to be able to use them when they were mounted on the firewall.

Picked up a few parts aswell the other day new billet ignition and coil waiting on the 6AL box.

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

Nice looking Monte. Looks more race than street for sure. No air filter, dry sump, etc.. Any idea what it runs/ran? With the non glass windows, it wouldn't be street legal here in Calif. Man I love a nice silver paint job.

The 48 is looking good and I know what you mean about building a custom car, there is just no way to rush the process, things always take longer than you think they would. In the end you will have a unique car and all the hard work and lack of rest will be worth it. After about 4 years on and off (mostly on) my car goes in the paint booth on Monday.

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

I'm not a big Monte Carlo fan normally but that's a sweet looking ride, you can tell it was born as a race car but he's refined it a bit. Killer car for sure. What is the story on the motor, how did he net 358", large bore short stroke or just an .040 over 350? What did it run?
One of the guys we used to race outlaw 10.5 with had a chevy II that honestly had more ploished metal on it, the interior was ridicules. I can't imagine the upkeep on a show car like that Monte let alone a race car, that's dedication to polished surfaces...

Your '48 is really coming along. Sweet looking ride I always have loved those cars..

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

Hey I dont mean to thread jack. I work at this wrecking yard and they have a old plymouth that looks just like your car there pro 48. I think they are just going to end up junking it and the body is in killer shape i mean no holes rust nada its clean. What are those things worth unrestored? Its in better shape than some of the camaros ive seen on here unrestored.

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

This Monte is really cool!
I dont recall the displacement excatly i know it was a samller displacement in the 350ish range but i do recall a person shouting out 722 hp off the sign he had up.
At a local indoor show in the mall we had here in eastern ohio, He had it there and did well showing it of course but best part of the whole show was driving it though the mall on the way out and it shook out some of the inserts from the drop ceiling out leaving,
It literally sounds like a pro stock car.

The story from friends that have had there engines dynoed at his shop is It was his very first car at age 16 and completly built the car with the intent to run super gas with it. And turned out so nice he just decided to tool around in it instead and use it as a show peice and advertisement for his business. Never seen it ran but if it was super gas would be a 9.99 car im guessing.
Its all chrome moly steel chassis and every bolt on it is indexed and in the right place.
I did notice a few stress cracks down low around the bumper valances where they were molded into the body from the car flexing some,

A close freind has a 70 monte with a bb in it and he got to ride around the mall in it before he loaded it up and said when he launched it it just felt like you were hit in the back with a baseball bat just pinned you in the seats.
He the owner was grinning and said "Now thats why i built it"
To bad its not wrung out more often would be a blast to drive
When i talked with my buddy Kent i'll get some details from him more on the engine

Re: A Killer small cube Pro Street!

Thanks guys the ole 48 has been in metal mock up for almost 4 years so many lil things changed on it that all ad up.
I welded the fenders to the body and tilted the front clip "still all metal mind you" and did the top of the hood pancake style and opened it at the body line for a cleaner look and feel to it flipped the bumpers moved them closer to the body etc. things you just wouldnt think of.
Waiting on my heads to buttoned up the rest of the motor short block is completed. and will get my news wheels on etc when the car is in primer and out of mock up. But overall really fun build.
Just be nice to fire it up finally.

I will post pictures for sure, hopefully it comes out decent. I probably still have a month of assembly left after paint, but I will post progress pictures.

I almost asked before I read that you were using a 6AL this is the same three items I went with.I mounted my coil in side and used a feed thru.Heres a pic of the billet cover my buddy made....Many don't like the box in the engine bay but I think it has a good look...This thing is looking great you got to get it finished we need to see the final product.
