This is Bennie's first car. He's had it for 15 years and he plans on keeping it forever. Since he sent me the first batch of pictures in 2001 (see below) the car has had a complete frame-off restoration. He customized his own stripe, installed new quarter panels, did "lots of block sanding," and removed the trim because he wanted a cleaner look. It still has the 400 engine but now has 4.11 gears which "make it a different machine to drive."

This is the information Bennie sent with his original pictures in 2001, so it might need updating: 400 original block with 351 Boss heads, TRW forged Boss piston, 11.1:1 compression ratio, Boss OHO solid lifter cam by Crane Cams,
Roller Rockers Edelbrock intake with the Edelbrock 750 cfm carb. and the engine red lines at 7200 rpm thanks to a MSD 6 AL. Performance: 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, 1/4 mile best is 12.36 @ 112 mph. Usually does about 12.80 @ 105 if he doesn't push it past 6200 rpm. The car makes 436 hp at the rear tires and 590 ft/lbs. of torque! Most of the power is on at about 3700 rpm.
