For your consideration is a 1977 Chevrolet Monza Spider Pro-Street car.
The best way to describe this car is the perfect mix of high quality work, lots of time and a lot of money invested. That is what went into this higher end build. No short cuts, cheap parts or quick tricks. Everything is custom and high end. The car is built to enjoy safely on the street but race if wanted. I will walk through the condition of the vehicle below.
Exterior – Finished in a PPG Base Coat, Clear Coat, the red paint, flames and air brush work is very detailed. The paint is show quality with almost no flaws. The flames and spiders are stunning, very detailed and immaculate. The body is very straight and door gaps are nice. The glass is clear and in great shape. All the moldings, wheels, lights and badges are in great shape. You would expect paint of this caliper to be on a car that doesn’t get much street time, its that nice!
Interior – All custom and in show quality condition. The seats are fresh. Carpet, headliner and dash are all custom. The carpet is molded for this build, headliner is perfect and the dash is a work of art with the roll bar integrated into the dash its self. All of the lights and gauges work as they should. Gauges include: Speedometer, Tachometer, Temp, Oil Pressure, Trans Temp, Volts, Boost and Air Fuel Ratio (Wide Band).
Mechanical – Well….this is where the majority of the excitement. A Supercharged Big Block Chevy powers this very light car. The approach to this build was pillared upon safety, quality, durability and reliability. This car runs like a race car, is tame enough for the street, shifts great, stops and steers as it should! Tires, brakes and fluids are all new/fresh. A true “race car thats a street car”!
Engine – Supercharged 496ci Big Block Chevy that was professionally built by Domhoff Automotive Machine in Pittsburgh PA. Everything in and on the engine is of the highest quality. The Callies rotating assembly is capable of handing power north of 2000HP. Valve train, Bullet cam and lifters are all roller, 3/8″ hardened pushrods. Bullet Camshafts are known for their custom cams. This cam is tailored to this combo with streetablity in mind. Its not too much to drive the car, its streetable! The engine is only running on two pounds of boost currently. Its a street friendly 600HP is a blast but that number can be north of 1000 with a pulley change and some tuning. The car has always been cared for and NEVER raced. The engine has only seen the 2LBS of boost, no more than that. Pump gas is perfect at its current boost. Race fuel is only needed if you significantly increase supercharger boost.
Transmission – The Turbo 350 had been built to take the power and stay reliable. The custom converter and transmission has been tailored to the engine and its potential peak power. Driving around on the street, it acts normal and stays cool. If you want to launch, as with any good converter, it will flash 3000 RPM and go!
Rear End – Ford 9″ narrowed. Moser 31 spline axles. Limited slip, 3.50:1 gear.
Undercarriage – Very nice, well engineered and clean! Full rear tub with full rail frame connectors.
This is a versatile car. You can show it. You can race it. You can drive it around on the street. Its easy to drive and enjoy!
