Default Scout 80 Gasser w/426 HEMI

I found this while surfing some Hot Rod sites.

A 426 HEMI Scout 80. The Elephant Hunter.

I bet it was a wild and crazy ride.

Here's the history. The scout was built in the early 70's way up here in the great white north by Jim Pratt and street raced a ton. (And I mean a ton !!) It had a 426 Hemi set back 8 inches and rides on a Econoline drop axle and an Olds rear w 5:13s. The beast turned 12's way back when and was rumored to have hit the 10's with decent rubber. The truck was featured in the 1974 Hot Rod Year book where the name Elephant Hunter was pinned on it.

Disregard the PM. Was gonna tip you off to the HAMB. Looks like you found it. Cool stuff over there for those who want to chop stuff up and make it go!!!!

WARNING. If you want stock DO NOT LOOK at the HAMB!!!!!!! It could be very disturbing if you are a purist in any sense no matter the make or model.

That's because you haven't seen mine, in my opinion anyway.

Yes this is my Scout and yes, it's really cool. After a 2 year build I have it ready for it's initial shake down passes. So on Oct 2/3 The "Elephant Hunter" made it's return to the track after a 32 year hiatus. The plan was to make a few shake down passes but things went so well that I hammered on it a few times. Good thing I didn't have the Trans brake hooked up. That would have been an invitation for disaster.

1964 Scout 80 (What's left of one anyway)
10 inch engine setback
Straight axle kit from the 70's

377 sbc: 11.5-1, Brodix heads / intake, stock Holley 750 and a mild solid lifter cam. 510 hp / 482 tq on the dyno.
T400 with reverse manual
Dana 60 w 4.56 gears, Competition Eliminator ladder bars

Best ET: 11.31 Short shfited 1-2 and shut down @ 1100 ft (Iinto a big headwind)
Best mph: 112 On the 11.61 pass
Best 60ft: 1.52 On the 11.31 pass

Last pass of the day I flashed the convertor and pulled a 3 foot wheelstand hard against the wheelie bars. I rode it out 80 feet past the tree. (Sorry, no video)
