My brother Bob is pretty much finished with his AFX car (we're never really done).

Bob's '65 draws a crowd at every car show. Between the Porsche Guards Red paint, the 528 hemi and the altered wheelbase, the car makes quite a visual statement.

Bob assembled his own engine using a Mopar Performance block, heads, cam and intake. Other features include an MSD ignition system, Fluidampr, and Doug's Headers. The computer dyno says it should make around 700 hp at the flywheel. It shifts through a rebuilt 727 with pushbuttons and a 3800 rpm stall converter. Out back is a Dana 60 with 4.10 gears suspended on S/S springs. The three inch exhaust passes through two chamber Flowmasters. Bob uses Hoosier radial skinnies up front and Hoosier DOT Quicktimes in the back. Stainless Steel Brakes supplied the front disk conversion.

Bob did all the metal work inside and out including the fenders and the cage. The rear quarter panels are flawless. Anyone who knows anything about bodywork has to be impressed with what Bob has accomplished with this car.

The Bel runs and sounds as good as it looks.

Before you go for a ride you better make sure your eyeballs are securely fastened because they tend to end up in the back of your head.

See Bob's Previous Mopar of the Month!

Another excellent job, Bob!

Quite understandable that the '65 will draw a crowd!   smile!
