It was a thrash to the final minute but Kevin, Chad, and the crew from Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle got the job done before the 2014 SEMA show a couple months back. After SEMA, rather than loading up and going home the Kevin, Chad, Nate Tovey and a couple other maniacs hopped into the Valiant and the Craftsman Tools Comet that Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle also built for the “six speeds to Scottsdale” tour where they went on an awesome desert road trip to Scottsdale, Arizona for the final Goodguys show of the year.
This video was made on that trip. You’ll see some awesome desert cruising scenes, some great footage of the car being wailed on at the autocross and most importantly you will hear exactly what that big stroker Chrysler wedge sounds like with its Hilborn EFI feeding the fires inside. We talked to Kevin during and after the trip and everything went great. The car, which was just finished worked right and delivered nearly 20mpg while cruising on the highway in high gear with the EFI doing the fuel metering. There may be more there still, who knows.
It was a pleasure following the Violent Valiant build on BangShift and this video shows just how good the whole thing turned out.
