Default JCG Restoration & Customs 70 Challenger 2nd Test Car!

We just started this project Monday.. The car has been lingering here @ the shop for a few months putting a plan together for it.. Last Saturday I drove it 2 the SoCal Challenge & now is in pcs ready for upgrades…




Car was an original 440 6 Pack, 4 speed, Dana 60 Car…



Carter Hickman has a concept for us…



The first step was putting it on a jig & cutting out the existing frame rails… We measured the JCG 67-69 Camaro Sub-Frame with ride height & it was a close enough match… The grafting of the sub-frame is going pretty smooth..













Engine choice! LS Mast Motorsports 416 with RPM Road Race transmission.. C&R 9” Ford third member… I know a lot of guys are not gonna like what we are doing their.. But you can't beat the HP & packaging from a LS engine.. It is gonna be pretty damm cool showing up to LS Fest in this car…












Using a GMR 9” Ford Housing with JCG 3 Link rear suspension.. Tomorrow we design the shock mounts with top link mounting point…






More Progress Pics Next Friday!

Wow Cris, you guys are fast, wasn't the SoCal challenge held only a week ago?!? Amazing how much is already done to it.

I love the rendering! Can't wait to hear all the Mopar guys whine about the hot little Mast motor you have in this machine. What oil pan are you running on this motor, it looks like a sheetmetal pan?

Am I the only one who cringes just a little, about taking a 440-6pack car and putting a chevy in it?

Nope. I do too but I understand the reasoning and respect the owner's wishes. Not saying you're not but I'm certain a lot of people are going to have the same reaction. This car is going to be cool as hell though. Love the rendering.

Josh- We are on a fast pace to get this car on the road.. I have a completion date in my head that I would like for this car to be completed.. The car will be a down & dirty re-do.. Nothing fancy.. just upgrades to do some testing of JCG components..

Oil pan is ATS pan that we used for mock up..


I knew the drivetrain choice for this car was not going to be popular.. but I had a pile of parts sitting in corner of the shop that I pulled out of 2007 Mustang that needed a new home.. Primary goal for this car is to test & race the crap out of it.. & have some fun..

If time permits & can find somebody to let me borrow a late model Hemi Engine.. I will fit it between the frame rails to see how it fits..

Ooops, there you have....any takes that will give Cris a Mopar engine? Don't hold your breath Cris. Do what you do. It may just be me, but I wouldn't care if you put a Honda 4-cylinder in it. Of course I'm exaggerating a bit, but you get my point. Just as long as it would be a bad a$$ car.

You know, if you ever get a Road Runner in there, it would be wrong NOT to put a Coyote in it.
