1966 Satellite/GTX Clone in progress.

April 1, 2019

I have a customer with a nice driver 66'Satellite soon to be GTX clone.  It's a 4 speed car that had a standard slightly warmed up 440.  He's getting a 650 hp stroked 440 (500inch) engine with an aluminum Indy top end. 

 

The car had the engine out when it came to me.  The new engine is a pull from the previous Barton 528" Hemi swap I did on the 66 Charger further down in the blog.   It has a VERY aggressive top end with a giant camshaft and Indy heads and intake manifold.   I'll try and get an idle clip at the end of this project, it has a really awesome old school chop to it.

 

Couple of pics of the blank canvas.

 

 

Getting to work on the engine.  New flywheel, roller pilot bearing, and ARP hardware.

 

 

It's getting a McLeod twin disk street clutch. 

 

 

Assembling the drive-train.

 

 

In she goes! Takes some patience and care when doing this alone. 

 

 

Nestled in nicely - that's enough for this weekend, next weekend is water pump, headers, shifter, and wiring.

 

 

Upcoming work will include a fuel system, new 3" exhaust, and a NASCAR inspired gauge package as well as a WilWood disc brake conversion.    

 

Uploaded some new pics - descriptions to follow.
