As most of you know by now, Timeless Muscle is all about those classic, American, carbureted performance vehicles. As we mention in our Mission Statement, we’re geared towards everything from ’60s big-block muscle to the admittingly smog-equipped cars of the early ’80s.
Despite this, we simply can’t ignore the hugely popular trend of dropping late-model powertrains into classic musclecars. They offer the perfect blend of beautiful, timeless styling with modern power, performance, and efficiency. So you might just be seeing a bit of those from time to time right here as well.
Recently, we caught wind of YearOne‘s latest project, an LS-powered, pro-touring ’66 Oldsmobile 442 that they’re finishing up for one of their return customers. Sporting an impressive list of goodies like massive Baer brakes, Grip Equipped wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, a FAST 102mm intake manifold, and a low-restriction air filter, this car appears to be the compete package.
Knowing how YearOne’s GhostWorks Garage rolls, a set of high-flowing heads, a lumpy camshaft, long-tube headers, and a low-restriction exhaust are probably part of the package as well. As YearOne’s Keith Maney, points out, the cruising season is almost over, and if you have any last-minute parts for your classic GM vehicle to check out their website.
YearOne also dabbles with modern-sized retro wheels, 17-inch and larger diameters; whether you own a BOSS 302 or a Chevelle SS, YearOne has you covered in that department as well!
