’41 Willys on PowerBlock!

Check out this gorgeous 1941 Willys custom on PowerBlock this weekend. Courtney welcomes yet another awesome build by Jason Graham Hot Rods of Portland, Tennessee. He started with just a bare body and built a custom chassis under it with a full air ride suspension for owner David Trent. Jason did extensive body mods including a 3 1/2” chop, custom fender skirts in the rear, hand-built running boards, suicide doors, a side opening hood and reshaped the front fenders. It’s powered by a small block Chevy with 3 deuces and a 350 turbo tranny. The interior is killer with White tuck and roll and Green piping, plus a custom dash with a ’34 Plymouth gauge pod. Jason created his own custom color from PPG Green Pearl and Green Microflake. And it all rolls on ‘55 Pontiac hubcaps on Firestone bias-ply whitewalls.

See it on PowerBlock August 24th & 25th. For more JasonGrahamHotrods.com

Ol’ Ranch Truck on PowerBlock!

This weekend Courtney shows off one gorgeous custom truck that’s going to live on a Montana ranch. Owners David and Helena Seiver wanted a four-wheel-drive custom truck that was ranch-worthy so they turned to T.C. Penick and the crew at Bay One Customs. The problem: this was a two wheel drive 1954 F-100. No problem for Bay One!

The New Process transfer case found a home, and they dropped in a Mercury 410 engine with C6 transmission. The rear bed is a unique material made out of recycled plastic. The interior is retro but updated with a killer stereo, iPod connections and other creature comforts including a Lokar digital shifter readout. It’s got a 10,000-pound Warn winch in the front and a 10,000 pound Warn hitch in the rear hidden behind the license plate. All in all the team has 600 man-hours in this project!

See it on PowerBlock June 29 & 30. For more check out BayOneCustoms.com

MuscleCar’s Dart gets a paint job, plus we head to the Ford Shelby Meet!

 

If you’ve checked out the most recent issue of PowerBlock Magazine, you know that we’ve recently featured MuscleCar’s Project Business Time, with stories that feature sheet metal work and how to install a roll cage.

Though we’ve already shown you the completed 700-plus HP project, this weekend on a NEW episode of MuscleCar, our Dart goes from black, to plastic, to primer, to painted! Plus, the guys show you how to use your computer to make graphics for your ride.

“Well, there is no denying that billboards get attention, so we kept that in mind on our Dart!” Tommy said about the project. “And as if the paint, engine and rear tires wouldn’t do the trick, we just had to put the Hemi on the hood!”

Sense a little bit of sarcasm there?

Also, MuscleCar heads to Oklahoma for the 38th annual Ford Shelby Meet! Make sure you check it out this weekend at 9:30 EST on PowerBlock!
