Power comes via a GMPP hipo 383 sporting 425 hp through an Edelbrock intake and a Barry Grant Demon carburetor with MSD ignition. Custom touches include The Roadster Shop air cleaner, smoothie valve covers, and a Billet Specialties Tru-Trac serpentine belt system.
Wanting to add a selection of elegant modifications to the Speed33 body, Jeremy and Chad Glasshager mapped out a number of updates, including a sectioned grille, and a curvaceous rolled rear pan to not only accent the IRS but to also route the stainless dual exhaust with perfect symmetry. A set of custom steel hood sides were treated to deco-inspired inserts, adding just enough seduction to the mix. Completing the exterior are custom taillights and low-slung headlights by Greening Auto Company. To bring a level of subtleness to the project once all of the final fabrication and fitment of the body panels were completed, Jack worked with Phil and Jeremy to come up with the custom-blended PPG Frost Green neatly applied by Joe Belfiore of The Roadster Shop.
Billet Specialties Magnitude...
Billet Specialties Magnitude wheels measuring 17 inches in the front and 20 inches in back are wrapped in T/A P205/40R17 and T/A P295/45R20 BFGoodrich g-Forces.
While in the final assembly stage, a one-off dash filled with custom-faced Classic Instruments gauges was installed accenting the hood side panels. Portage Trim in Ravenna, Ohio, got the nod for the interior and created the stylish inner door panels along with a flowing console. Yards of Butter-Soft Green leather, combined with complementing German square weave carpeting, accent the Budnik steering wheel and Lokar shifter. Wrapping it all up is a deep green convertible top that adds just enough allure to the exterior of the car.
With his all-weather hot rod fueled up and ready to hit the streets, it's easy to see Jack and his wife, Nancy, will put plenty of miles down as the months fly by, and to us that's just plain bitchin'.
