Starting with a healthy six-cylinder car with clean white body and good interior, Matt set about building himself the SL/R 5000 he had always wanted.
The Barbados Green Aussie muscle car now sports a 308 with a Crane 286 cam, big-valve heads and an Edelbrock manifold, all topped off with a double-pumper 650 Holley. A 3200rpm stall converter sends power through the T350 to the Truetrac nine-inch running 3.55:1 gears.
Convo Pros in 15x10-size fill the flared guards on the back, while 15x7s on the front help Matt steer the four-door rocket.
Matt likes the stock look of these muscle cars and has stayed true to tradition as best he could.
