The original 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am body sits on its original 125″ wheelbase Hal Canode-built chassis. The Quarter Pounder is powered by an old school iron 427 Big Block Chevy strapped with aluminum Brodix heads.
Spinning an 8-71 Supercharger and fed by a Enderle pump & bird catcher injection the tuneup was supplied by Fuel Injection Enterprises. The engine is kept lit by a super-hot FIE SuperMag III magneto. The ATI ProGlide and ATI Converter transfer the power to the Ford 9″ rear rolling on 4.30 gears.
