This is a compilation of some of the recent builds from Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. We featured the 720+ horsepower Chevelle convertible, the LS3 powered 64 C10 pickup, the supercharged 6.1 Hemi powered Orangasm Cuda, and a beautiful V12 powered Ferrari 550 Maranello. The skilled crew at Manns can handle any restoration that comes their way. We hope you find them interesting, thank you for watching!

1978 Trans Am 455 V8 Start up and Restoration Update

 

We thought you might like a look at this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am from Manns Restoration. It’s powered by the original 400 V8, that has been bored and stroked to 455 cubic inches. It also features the shaker hood, t-tops, and snowflake wheels. They still have a few bits of trim left to install, but it’s getting really close to completion. In this video, we mostly wanted to give you a look at the stereo setup. It allows you to sync up with modern devices, but still retain the appearance of the factory stereo. It’s definitely a cool piece of equipment. Hopefully you find this interesting, we appreciate you watching. We’ll try to come back with another video when the car is fully completed.

The background track is “Ten Million Slaves”, by Otis Taylor. It’s off his 2002 album, “Respect the Dead”. This video is not monetized, nor do we claim any rights to the song.

Trans Am Update & Open Headers Road Test

 

It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am First Road Test

 

Jordan decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!

Test Driving 1970 Chevelle SS 396 Big-block V8 Four-speed

I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, from Passing Lane Motors. This is a true L34 396 Big-block V8, four-speed car. As you can see, it has been beautifully restored in the correct factory color. It’s riding on SS wheels, with BF Goodrich white letter tires. The paint is extremely slick, the interior looks like new, and it runs out great. It really doesn’t get any better. I hope you find it interesting. We felt very fortunate to be able to take this baby for a little test drive. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Test Driving Awesome 555 Big-block Powered ’67 Corvette Convertible

We thought you might like a look at this awesome 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. It’s powered by a 555 Cubic Inch, Pat Musi built, big-block Chevy V8. All that power is being sent through a new Muncie M22 Rock Crusher four-speed, back to a posi rear with 3.36 gears. It has Wilwood disc brakes all the way around, four wheel independent suspension, ice cold A/C, and American Racing rims with high-performance Nitto tires. This truly is as nice as they come. It’s extremely powerful, but still well-mannered on the road. This car needs nothing. We felt fortunate to be able to take this one for a little test drive. Hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
