OUR 1967 4-4-2 SUPER/PRO

ET BRACKET RACE CAR

In addition to our award winning Cutlass/4-4-2 show car restorations, we also race them! Whether your Rocket Project is a daily driver, an all out concours show car, street/strip, strip only or whatever vision you have for your Rocket, Supercars Unlimited has what it takes to make you a winner.

 

 Since 1974, this 67 has been our rolling test bed.

It allows us to test and develop new products before we put them in our catalog. NHRA Bracket Racing today requires an extremely reliable and consistent race car. Which is really the same thing we all want in our street cars.

Our hands-on experience assures you that we will always provide you with parts we have proven to be the best for your Rocket Project.

 

ROCKET POWER!

PERFORMANCE

Our home track (Portland International Raceway) runs an 1/8th mile bracket race program. In its current form, our 67 4-4-2 has run a best of 7.01 at 96 mph. With 60 foot times in the low 1.5 – 1.4’s. (Remember, this is with a cam with .475" of valve lift).

 

Setup as an NHRA Super/Pro ET BRACKET CAR (not a "street shootout" type car), its mission is to deliver consistent performance (down to the thousandth of a second) round after round. Other than the normal between rounds routine, this car is very reliable and requires virtually no maintenance.

For the best results for your Rocket Project, we offer the products that we have proven to provide you with the best value for your dollar.
