Before Sunrise

Kurt Petitti, from Oxford, CT bought this ’73 Go Mango 340 Challenger after it had been in a front-end crash. He fixed the chassis himself using factory frame and body prints, and his toolmaker skills to line up and weld the undercarriage. The .030-over 340 is heated up with 9.75:1 K-B pistons, Eagle I-beam rods and ported Mopar X-heads. Intake is a Speed Demon 650 4-barrel on an Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold. The mill is hooked to a 727 Street/Strip Fairbanks trans. Kurt worked on the car before going to work at 4 a.m.—hence the name.
