More awards for MCR craftsmanship
This past Saturday June 2nd at Raceway Park in Shakopee, MN, Muscle Car Restorations participated in the 23rd annual Mopars in the Park all Mopar show. The show, held inside of a quarter mile asphalt circle track, was filled to the brim with more than enough vintage iron to keep any Pentastar lover ecstatic all weekend long.
Besides sponsoring the Unrestored Survivor class, MCR displayed one of its more recently completed projects a 1963 Plymouth Belvedere owned by Jack Brundage. Built to be a replica of his first new car, Jack's 383 4-speed now looks just like the one he drove and raced in his youth. The 383 has been stretched to 433 cubic inches and it now spins an A-833 Hemi 4-speed but other than that, it is a period restoration.
While Jack's '63 was not eligible for voting, Mike Creglow's 1965 Satellite attracted enough attention to win Best in Class Race Car. Mike's Plymouth is a full on drag racer boasting a 499 CID 400 wedge motor designed and built by Lofgren Automotive. A reverse valve body 727 backs the wedge. Besides the complete restoration work, MCR also installed mini tubs and a fully licensed 9-second NHRA roll cage. A first place trophy its first time out shows that Mike's '65 looks as good as it will go.
