Larry Helm’s Custom 1959 Chevrolet Apache At NSRA’s Street Rod Nats

The braking system was upgraded to a power disc brake on all four corners, power steering was added, along with an ididit tilt steering column. Inside the cabin is a Vintage Air environmental control system. The rearend is set up with 3:38 Yukon gears with a Moser axle set.

The only odd component in the build was under the hood. The build team put a de-stroked 350ci four bolt main, Gen I small-block Chevy in the engine bay. De-stroking the engine to 336ci ensures that the engine revs quicker, with some decent low-end torque. This was accomplished with a 327 large journal crankshaft and cylinder bores punched out to 0.60 over stock.

Original GM double-hump cylinder heads with stainless steel valves, an aluminum Edelbrock Street Dominator intake with 650 Edelbrock Street Dominator carb sits on top of the high-revving mill.

We may not have understood the de-stroked engine in the build, but we sure could appreciate it, as well as the rest of the build.
