4300rpm stall converter!

I just got my copy of the new book on the Gasser Wars of the late 50s early 60s.

Awesome book with lots of colored pictures. Great adjunct to Don Montgomery's similar tome of a few years ago on "Supercharged Gas Coupes".

In an article on the Malicote Bros. twin turbocharged SBC (this was when the GMC Roots blower was king - still is in fact!!), the authors mentioned that the Malicotes needed extreme revs to make power so B&M made them a 4300RPM stall torque converter. Imagine running that in your grocery getter!!

4300 to me doesn't really sound that big since I'm into drag racing. I run a 10" 4000 stall in my '70 Chevelle with a TH350 and a 355 roller motor and it works nicely. My buddy with a 434 SBC in his 67 Chevelle runs a 6000 stall, he drives his on the street on special occations, this motor makes over 700hp without nitrous... We just cruise around in it and rap the throttle when you see people, it's really fun taking it out on a nice long grippy country road and just lay in the throttle and you are doin 120 in no time and slaming you into the seat like a jet. When you fire up this car it's idling at 1500 and you put it in gear you can't even tell because the stall, you have to rev it to 2500 just to get it to move. He let me drive it this summer and I was really stressed out when he asked if I wanted to so I hopped and we took off into the country just took it for a cruise about 3 miles away and I turned around and on the way back he told me "Ok floor it but be careful and get a good grip on the wheel" so I did and it was absolutly amazing feeling the shift light came on at 7500 as soon as my foot hit the floor it all happened soo fast and we were going over 100, the car was wanting to go sideways but I stayed in it and kept it straight and caught the next gear. What really took about 5 sec seemed like 10. Very neat feeling having 700hp at your foot.

Just had to share that story with others!

Helped a friend and his partners on a Anglia Coupe called "The HOP Toad" from Van Nuys, Ca. It had a mid engine Hilborn injected 392 Hemi. It got it's name from the way it left the line with a manual trans, they went to an auto and it bogged terribly. B&M came out with the Clutch Flite and I think they were testing for B&M as one of there guys was always hanging around. What a difference, you popped the clutch on the line, the auto trans cushioned the shock, you left hard and auto shifted the rest of the gears. those were the days.
Hey wills Iv'e got a Hot Rodding annual from 1962 with some cool pics from pomona, ect. I'll do my best to post a couple Ohio George Mongomery Willys shots after work tonite.
