Stubby Bob Stands Up

Stubby Bob 1950 Ford F-6 dump truck with a supercharged 454 BBC V8

Roadkill is back with episode 52 and possibly one of their most epic builds to date. If you remember in episode 44 Mike purchased a 1950 Ford F-6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to 102 inches. In this episode the team pulls the the flat-head V8 and swaps to a 454 ci big-block Chevy V8 with a 8-71 Weiand supercharger. The rest of the drivetrain will consist of a GearStar 4L80E automatic-transmission and a V-drive right between the two seats to send the power back to the rear end. To give the guys even further incentive David makes a $100 bet that Stubby Bob can drag the hitch doing a wheelstand. Watch below to see if the guys give or take the $100.

        Only problem with it on Netflix is that ito only season one and we are into season 5 already. I bought my subscription tof motor trend on demand and had this episode a month ago. It’s an awesome series and we’ll worth watching as is the engine builders and roadkill garage series.

    Been watching these guys since the first episode. Freiburger has talent and Finnegan is just crazy enough to make Freiburgers ideas happen. I don’t know what’s going to happen next with Stubby Bob but I hope they get some kind of cooling system on it.
