Vehicle Description

A great, and time tested way to go drag racing is to start with a complete car.  The shopping for parts, waiting for shipping, and trying dozens of combinations that don’t work can take lots of time away from actually racing the car.  And building a car from scratch — or worse yet — the “project car” can be expensive. This Monza was originally built to Pro Stock specs, so it’s more than up to the task for brackets, Super Gas and Super Comp, or class racing.  Everything’s here: engine, tranny, all electronics, and all accessories right down to the parachute. Check the highlights to see names like Jesel, Comp Cams, Brodix, Strange, and be assured the car was built using only the best components.  The frame is all TIG welded Chrome Moly and is “over built” for most classes. A bulletproof Dana rear will take whatever you can dish out. A four link will get you hooked up. There are many ways to build a race car, but two important pieces of data are the dyno sheet, and of course, a time slip.  A complete dyno sheet shows that the 331 is ready, willing, and able. It sounds fantastic! Bottom line: 650 horsepower at 8500 rpm. The car has run in the 8s. It should pull easy 9.60s as it is, and with a little fine tuning, even lower ETs are attainable. It’s a 331 small block with Brodix Pontiac heads.  It has dual Holleys on a modified Holley tunnel ram. Inside is a complete roller valve train and Jesel belt drive. The trans is a TCI Powerglide with transbrake. The car certainly has the right drivetrain to get the job done. The interior is also nicely done in rolled aluminum and coated with durable gray paint.  The body features a drooped Hairy Glass front clip, Hairy Glass doors, and Viper Red paint. Extras include a big AutoMeter tach with shift light. Other goodies on board are a Moroso Ultimate 2 Oil Pan, Tilton Super Starter (very important!), wheelie bars, a complete MSD ignition system, and a Simpson chute with a very nice lever and cable set up.  The graphics are easily removable to make way for your own personalized look. This one’s ready for you to take on a nice Sunday drive.
