Barn Find Polaris Project – Part 3 – Machining the Head & New Plastics

This is Part 3 in our Polaris Barn Find series. In this video, we show some of the freshly painted parts, test the compression, machine the head, and then show the plastics that will be going on next. If all goes well, we should have the Polaris completely back together for the next video. Then we’ll get to start having some fun with it.

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part One

This is the first part in a series of videos, where we will resurrect this old Polaris ATV. This particular quad was built as a prototype for Ritter Cycle Racing’s stroker kits. It’s appears to be a Polaris 350L, but it’s actually powered by a 409cc Two-stroke stroker engine. This really is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Over the next few weeks, we plan to bring it back to life and even transform it into more of a sleeper. Then hopefully we’ll lure in some unexpected victims for a little drag racing action. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Wicked Sounding Cammed 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle from Passing Lane Motors

This thing is definitely plenty healthy. There is just nothing like the sound of a well-built, cammed small block Chevy. This 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle is powered by a 406 Stroker small block, backed by a 700r4 automatic. It’s a beautiful car inside and out. It’s decked out in the SS trim and strips and the interior has been fully restored as well. This one is ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

The car is painted Vermillion Red with black stripes and looks like it is in motion standing still.
