The Ramcharger’s High & Mighty 1958
1949 Plymouth three window business coupe with a 354 Hemi and 392 heads, credited as using the first ever tunnel ram intake w / twin Carter carbs and of course the 48″ long Megaphone exhaust. The rear frame rails were cut back and suspension moved forward, with the front end lifted 12″ higher.
The Ramcharger’s team was led by Tom Hoover and was made up of engineers who built the car using the engineering principle of “Accelerate a vehicle over a fixed distance in the minimal elapsed time.”
The cars best time was in the 11′s at 117 mph.
