Imagine Scoring Not One But Two Rare Mopars While Still in High School

  Imagine Scoring Not One But Two Rare Mopars While Still in High School In the late 1970s, the Denver area was a hotbed of obtainable, topnotch muscle cars. Gas was expensive, insurance was through the roof, and good deals on hot rides could be had if you were willing to seek them out, make an offer, and take a chance on a slightly used (and possibly abused) street performer.

When you grow up in a family that's devoted to hot rods and custom cars it's easy to see where the influence came from indoctrinating you into the hobby. For Ron Ellis of Wilson, New York, it was commonplace for his family to be on the road to countless rodding events accented by trips to the dragstrip during his formative years. This easily fueled the overall experience with plenty of daily excitement fused with the adrenalin rush generated from the sounds of hopped-up V-8s. It literally took every model kit he'd built at the kitchen table and brought them to life when he walked into the family garage where everything from a 1940 Ford Tudor sedan was being worked on right next to a 1940 Willys pickup or a radical Chevelle.

Giant American Made Hemi Heads for Your Small-Block Ford!

  Giant American Made Hemi Heads for Your Small-Block Ford! Like you, when we first looked at these heads, we imagined them hanging out of the engine compartment of a Model A or 1933 Ford. The real market might be X275 radial racers that you see at events like No Mercy in South Georgia. It makes sense when you consider these heads are capable of flowing 471 cfm at 0.800 lift on the intake side and 320 cfm on the exhaust side when they are prepped for racing. Since the Radial classes have turbo-size restrictions, racers are forced to push both cubic inches and cylinder head flow to make power.

Being a hands-on hot rod family, Ron spent plenty of time in the shop holding a wrench, which led to bleeding brakes and even learning the basics of bodywork. While attending a local car show during the late '70s he came face to face with a 1942 Willys Gasser packed with a 383ci V-8. The car, coated in silver metallic gloss with candy red flames made such an impression that he had his picture taken with it. Without a doubt it became his benchmark for the ultimate hot rod.

By the time he reached high school he bought his first car, a 1966 Nova SS followed by a 1929 Ford pickup. Then one day it happened, while driving home in the family car his dad sighted what he thought was a Willys coupe parked alongside a house on a side road. Turns out it was the same silver 1942 Willys he worshipped since he was a youngster, although the car was sitting out in the elements, as much as they tried it couldn't be bought for a fair price. He kept tabs on the car after graduating from college but eventually it disappeared from the local landscape. Fate works in strange ways though and years later while researching to buy another coupe a series of calls led him to a disassembled 1942 Willys that was waiting to be converted to Pro-Street. Finally coming face to face with the car he chased for decades gave him the opportunity to make a deal and haul it home.

It’s hard to imagine nearly 70 years have passed since Chrysler first introduced the wonders of the highly efficient hemispherical combustion chamber to American motorists—and hot rodders. Back in 1951 when those first 331 Fire Power equipped Saratogas, New Yorkers, and Imperials introduced owners to the thrill of stop-light dominance, the concept of smoking the rear tires away from an intersection wasn't yet "a thing."

I really like to see that like this, old classic cars that can not be said to be old, even the power that is able to beat a car that can be said young. Yup, this is 1942 Willys Coupe that carries 398 - ci Hemi V - 8 Supercharged engine. Even the interior and exterior that have been re-polish can make me err.

Nothing makes more of a statement under the hood better than a supercharged Hemi V-8. Starting with a 392ci block it was massaged to 398 ci by K-S Auto of Tonawanda, New York, and filled with a stock crank linked to stock rods wearing 8.0:1 Ross Racing forged aluminum pistons urged by cam from Hot Heads. Warmed-over factory heads make plenty of power while a Weiand 6-71 supercharger sitting on a Cragar intake fed by a pair of Holley 750-cfm carbs delivers plenty of punch. It sparks to life with a Mallory Unilite ignition and dumps spent gases through custom fenderwell headers to a polished 3-inch stainless exhaust with mufflers from Stainless Specialties. Power moves rearward through a reworked TH400 trans by Competition Transmission Services of Tonawanda to a custom driveshaft.

Mopar Highlights from the 2017 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals .
The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center on the outskirts of Chicago was packing some serious Mopar heat during the annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN). For Mopar lovers, the MCACN event is a great way to end the car show season, and being indoors and under one roof, it's pure sensory overload. Created by Bob and Vicki Ashton, MCACN assembles the very best muscle car samples of all the brands, not just Mopars, and celebrates certain themes and/or historical milestones of certain nameplates and even options. That's why we love the MCACN show — it's always something new and different year-after-year.
