Chris Bryant and Mitchell Does brought a very unique race car to the Grassroots Motorsports $2016 Challenge. Their original plan was to bring the truck to the $2015 Challenge but the project involved more than they had anticipated so it took an extra year of development.

The team called Procrastination Performance started with a 1994 Ford F-350 Crew Cab and we mean only the cab. As you can see there is no need for a bed on this race car. Under the body the guys installed the full suspension from a Subaru Forester. This included the front and rear subframes, rack and pinion steering, and MacPherson front and rear independent suspension.

Powering the wild custom is a Chevy 350 ci V8 pulled from a 1979 Corvette. The previous owner upgraded the engine with a mild camshaft and the team added an aftermarket carburetor. The team estimates the engine is producing around 400 horsepower.

The rest of the powertrain consists of a 700R4 four-speed automatic connected to a Subaru Forester rear end. The front Subaru differential was removed and the system modified to roll freely.

    I definitely like this truck, but….
    a ’79 Corvette made either 195 hp (L-48) or 225 hp (L-82)
    I assume it would take more than a mild camshaft for it to suddenly make around 400 hp.
