1969 Chevrolet Kingswoood
This is a FUN car.
This particular Chevrolet wagon spent most of its life in California. When it was retired, it was stored outdoors. While the climate treated the car well (it didn't rust), it did age the car. Fortunately, the car was recognized for its uniqueness and condition and was rescued. The car was completely disassembled, all doors and glass removed, and repainted in the correct shade of 1969 Butternut Yellow. The car was carefully reassembled with an awesome mix of original parts and hard-core go-fast parts. This car is clean and crisp and tight, and the 46K miles shown on the odometer may be original.
The car is now powered by a late 454 4-bolt block, fitted with an Eagle crank, Eagle rods, and JE pistons that combine to make 470 cubic inches. A solid roller camshaft with .640" lift moves the 2.25" intake valves in the fully ported 990 cylinder heads. A ported Weiand Team G intake mounts a modified Dominator carburetor, and Hooker headers feed 3" full-length pipes with an X-style crossover. The car has 13:1 compression and runs exclusively on race fuel, and the motor spins easily to 7200 RPM.
The car has a built Powerglide trans, assembled with all the good parts, along with a custom 8" ATI converter. To make the car more suitable to terrorize the local streets here in Anderson, we may fit the car with a built TH400 transmission, or perhaps the new Tremec 5-speed slated to be released later this year.
A custom steel driveshaft channels the horsepower to a built 12-bolt axle housing, fitted with 4.88 gears, a spool, and heavy-duty 35-spline axles.
This car has been raced extensively, and will lift both front wheels from a dig EVERY TIME using the 275/60 MT drag radials. And despite weighing 4400 lbs, the car runs deep into the 11’s, with the potential for much more.
