The American Powertrain Parting Shift: Ride In Kevin Guthrie’s Jeffco Shifted Outlaw 10.5 Bubble Top


The American Powertrain Parting Shift: Ride In Kevin Guthrie’s Jeffco Shifted Outlaw 10.5 Bubble Top

There are guys who do things differently than the rest and we tend to celebrate those guys around here at BangShift because they keep life interesting. Kevin Guthrie is one of those guys because he’s got a supercharged, big block powered 1962 Chevy bubble top Outlaw 10.5 car that’s called Beluga. Adding to that already awesome list of stuff, the car has a Jeffco transmission between the seats that you will see him rip through the gears this video. The Jeffco is a planetary style manual transmission that’s proven itself to be exceptionally strong. The company has recently been purchased by a larger drivetrain manufacturer so we’ll be interested to see what becomes of the brand.

This car is really great and we have been fortunate to see it at events like the Street Car Super Nationals in Las Vegas and others. In a world dominated by Camaros and Mustangs we’re very glad to guys like Kevin Guthrie keep the sport spiced up and interesting. We don’t know what the car weighs or what kind of aero disadvantage it has over other machines int he class  but horsepower fixes all of that science junk anyway, right?

Grab a seat and then watch Kevin grab some gears in this absolutely awesome 1962 Chevy Bubble top!

    Larry’s right, that’s a 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door sedan. Bubble tops were Bel Air 2 door hard tops, this one ain’t that. It’s still a bad ass.

    There looks to be two different bodies on these car(s). One is bubble top and the other is two door sedan.

    I’ll be darned, Gary’s right. I seldom watch these videos ’cause they mess with my computer. I was judging by the car in the still photo, a 1962 2 door Bel Air sedan, but there is a hardtop in the video also. I hope the sedan didn’t have to replace the hardtop, those bubble tops are waaay cool, somewhat rare and quite expensive.
