The ute was previously campaigned by Dennis Taylor, with big block Chev power and primer paint. Dennis won the A/FX class at Drag Week 2014 and Jarrad took over the car the next year.
Jarrad treated the car to a complete rebuild chassis and driveline-wise, with Dennis Taylor Hot Rods swinging the spanners. The Chev was replaced by a 540ci Hemi, based on an Indy block. On top is a Blower Shop supercharger and a Hilborn injection stack - controlled by a Holley EFI system. Power? A lazy 1200hp!
Jarrad ran the car at last year's Drag Week in primer, but turned up this year with that fantastic period-style paint scheme. Not only that, but he claimed victory in the A/GAS class. Check out the video to learn a little of how he did it.
