With an iron block, 440-1 head, 540ci Diamondback Engine, this car had a best of 9.375 @ 145 MPH in the quarter. It now has a a BRAND NEW Aluminum Block, 572-16 head, 580ci Diamondback Engine with an estimated 100HP more and 100 pounds less. The motor has not yet made its initial break-in Full Passes — but it is expected to bring this car into the 8s.

Mark Artis of Texas Thunder Performance did all of the chassis, body, and most of the assembly; and Damon Kuhn of Diamondback Engine built the engine, front end, and rebuilt the transmission. It would cost well over $100,000 to build a NSS car exactly like this.

I am moving into a 60 Plymouth Wagon for my NSS racing — and would like to see this car land in good hands. It is a very fast all motor car — and not for the inexperienced or faint of heart. It is turn-key ready to race in the Nostalgia Super Stock FX class with NMCA and most other organizations that race NSS. It needs absolutely nothing. Chrome Moly Chassis easily certifies for 8.50.

The price is $65,000 firm.
