Barn Find Chevelle Brake Upgrade, BEV 818 Run, Hennessey F5, Porsche 911 Record, And Musical Road Mess Up
October 24th, 2017
The Barn Find Chevelle Gets New Stopping Power From EBC Brakes, A Tesla-Powered Electric Kit Car Runs A 9-Second ¼ Mile, Hennessey May Have The First Street-Legal Car To Hit 300MPH, A Musical California Road That Sounds Terrible, And A Porsche 911 Turbo S Runs An 8-second ¼ Mile all on PND!
This week on PowerNation Katie welcomes hot rod builder Steve Legens of Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martin, Tennessee. And with him a gorgeous 1960 Ford truck! One very interesting change Steve’s team made to the pickup was to the side trim; Ford never ran it down the entire side, but now that long strip of chrome trim looks fantastic. They dropped in a Coyote engine with a Borla fuel injection making about 510 horsepower. The Schott Wheels are a nice touch. There’s no missing the custom PPG red paint they call “Cardinal Red” because owner Jeff Perkins is a huge Cardinal’s fan! Inside distressed Pecan color leather seats and a Tan interior, plus with stock gauges give the truck that vintage look. One beautifully restored truck inside and out, front to back. Check it out this week on PowerNation.
