There are parts from over 14 vehicles in this build, including the radiator support fabricated from a Caterpillar D4 bulldozer. The front axle was stretched and disk brakes were added along with a rear mount rack and pinion. It’s powered by a 1973 corvette 350 with trickflow aluminum heads, big mutha thumper cam, holley 770 carburetor, drive gears and MSD ignition. These were followed by a 400 turbo transmission and a 373 posi rear end. The exhaust consists of a set of over the frame sprint car headers with MagnaFlow glassspack mufflers, stainless steel custom builder kit and MagnaFlow stainless tips. The sound is truly indescribable.
Fabricating and finding parts to build this truck took a lot of creativity. The casket is real, which gave us a definite direction with the design of the build. A custom tombstone fuel cell and wrought iron hand twisted fencing were added along with other personal touches.
