Mike Ricketts / MMissile 1967 Dodge Coronet 440. Rust free Arizona car purchased from another member. Removed the 360 crate drivetrain and installed the following…. 528 Chrysler crate, rebuilt/gone thru by Best Machine Racing Engines.

Rehoned block, Dart coatings on pistons, rebalanced with a SFI mopar balancer added. Milodon pan, stock heads with Manley Severe Duty valves and Indy roller rockers. Straightline Performance custom ground hydraulic cam 576/558 250/256 at .050, Indy single plane 4500 intake, Pro Systems 3 circuit Dominator, MSD distributor, Magnacore wires. Hooker super-comp race headers, Diamond Fabrication exhaust, aluminum 1350 joint shaft, Moser Dana w/410’s. The trans is a Cope Pro-street unit with a billet drum and Griner valvebody.

The car is a pumpgas driver, and has a Jeckyl and Hyde personality. It is fairly quiet and non noticeable going down the road, but you’d better have it pointed in the right direction when you pull the trigger on her. I’d like to thank Chuck Millen and the guys at BMRE, Scott Brown at Straightline Performance, Al at Racefab, Diamond at Diamond Fabrication, my nephew Joel, and all the help/ideas given to me by various friends. Thanks guys!!!!
