Racing of all forms is a progressive enterprise, so stuffing a big Hemi Pro Stock motor into something like a little Plymouth Arrow was just part of going faster back in 1978. You may have seen this car before, as it was showcased in the September 2014 issue of Mopar Collector's Guide. Most importantly, this drag special is presently certified to run 7.50 on NHRA tracks, giving its purchaser a chance at more than simple ownership (see glovebox door for more details).

Previously constructed as an actual Pro Stock car, this Arrow has the look of its era, and it backs its reputation up with an aluminum 498 CI Keith Black retro Pro Stock Hemi V-8 engine topped by Stage V heads, a magnesium Weiand tunnel ram and paired Quick Fuel Technologies 1050 CFM Dominator carburetors. Internally, it uses a Crane-design 296R camshaft, race gas 15.1:1 compression and a crank-triggered ignition system. A McLeod clutch and Lakewood bellhousing link this to a Lenco transmission, with a Fab 9 race differential spanning the scant distance between the monster rear slicks. If the names shown seem familiar, this car wears a custom Ronnie Sox-inspired vehicle wrap.

The fastback Arrow design superseded the earlier Crickets and Colts, and Bob Glidden used one of these cars equipped with a small-block engine to dominate the NHRA series in 1979. Of course, that huge, scientifically proven snorkel hood scoop was never offered on the street model. This car is built around a Chris Alston chromoly tube chassis and now features a 7.5 funny car cage. The interior consists of a driver seat with safety belts, faux dash detail, functional gauging, a large-face tach with shift light, and the multi-handle Lenco shifter. In keeping with its heritage, polished Centerline wheels are on all four corners wearing blackwall racing rubber, with a Deist parachute pack mounted to the rear. Sitting still or running fast, this special Mopar will always be a real attention-getter.
