This vehicle is featured in Chapter 8 of Automotive Electrical Performance Projects. Specifically, I illustrate how to install a complete Painless 18 circuit universal wiring harness, as well as a supplemental auxiliary power system. This is one of the largest chapters in the book and you'll learn all kinds of tips, tricks, and techniques.

At the time I did the original work, the owner was undecided on which engine he would purchase. Now that the engine is installed (a Smeding Blown 383), he was dying to hear it. We filled the bowls of the carbs with fuel and let it run until they were empty. Yeah, I'm thinking 685hp should be enough to motivate this 2,400 pound car!

We shot this with my iPhone so don't be too critical of the video quality. Also, the center console is not finished yet, so I plugged in the switch panel and laid it on the floor.
