1971 Dodge Demon - The Trunk

By , Photography by

We are on year two of this build, and as the months click by, we’re creeping closer to making some noise with our 1971 Dodge Demon. To catch you up, we bought this car in January 2011 as a back-halved roller with a Slant Six and a stock front end. Our plan was to finish the job with a Chassisworks 2x3 front-end kit and an eBay 5.7 Hemi with a set of Comp Turbo 67mm hairdryers and a 392 stroker kit from K1 and Wiseco.

We are doing the last major parts in sections. We have the hot- and cold-side plumbing on the turbos, the wiring, the brakes, the fuel, and the trunk left on the list. The list might sound short, but it represents several more months of thrashing to get this car on the road. For this story, we prepared the trunk using some old—and new—tricks.

*CC fabricator Grant Peterson uses Falcon cutoff wheels (PN A60UB-96) because they are thin. It reduces the gap you have to fill with weld later.
