There is just a little more to this story. Back in 2002 I had a friend who passed away suddenly at just 53 years old. I was charged with disposing of his estate which included a large number of AMC cars and parts. One of the pieces was a 401 shortblock he built along with a set of home ported cylinder heads and I purchased these from his family. This engine has sat for 16 years in storage bags when I finally decided last year to build "his" engine. I updated the build with more modern parts but kept it much the way he intended and located a TR manifold. He was a Hornet Pro Stock fan and wanted to build a tunnel ram replica of the Maskins Kanners cars. So I built this car with that engine in mind. My old friend is never forgotten and will always be riding shotgun in this car.
