Roadkill Races a 1974 Mazda Truck with a V8 in the Bed

Roadkill's 1974 Mazda Truck With an Oldsmobile 455ci V8 in the bed

The Roadkill team went to Santa Rosa, California to pick up a heavily modified 1974 Mazda truck and drive it down to compete in the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge. The truck originally came with a 1.3-liter 13B four-barrel carbureted engine. The truck is now powered by an Oldsmobile 455 ci V8 and 1969 Toronado transaxle in the bed of the truck. The guys purchased the truck for $5,000 and found out it needed some work if it was going meet the challenge.

Update 12/11/2015 – I realized we had previous written about this truck when it was on sale in August. Maybe the Roadkill team saw the listing off this website? I can wish.
