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!
