When we first met Snowball Bishop (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9s6CFUBq3I) and saw his old Ford coupe dirt track racer he had sitting behind his barn, we knew we had to see it back on the track. After some unfortunate delays and a good bit of blood, sweat, and tears, this Chrysler-440-V8-powered race car is back to its former glory. It may be a handful on the corners, but hearing it rip up the track again after a 50-year hiatus is the stuff dreams are made of. Follow along as we give this project our legendary Redline Rebuild time-lapse treatment and show you every single step it takes to completely rebuild a classic Mopar V-8 engine and “restore” the hacked-together Ford coupe Modified it powers.
