White Noise 1965 Chevy II

This car is as period correct as it possibly can be, built the way straight axel AFX gassers were built at the height of their popularity in the 60s, right down to the drilled out frame and doors for lighter weight.

The car is very well known throughout the Midwest and you may have seen it raced at the “Meltdown” Drags in Byron, IL. It also made the cover and feature spread article in the “Gears and Gals” magazine featuring the Meltdown Drags in 2013. A copy of the magazine in perfect condition is included.

The car is painted in white primer sealer and has dark blue candy stripes with its name “White Noise” and lettering hand painted by the legendary, Ted Turner, who does all the top fuel driver helmets.
This car needs nothing. Starts right up. It is a one of a kind turnkey, drag race ready straight axel AWB/AFX vintage built gasser needing only a new owner/driver, fine-tuned to your racing specifications.

Ownership History:

The car originally came from Alabama with Alabama plates. What started out as a shell found in a field for $800 was transformed into a period correct straight axle AWB/AFX gasser professionally built by Kip Hansberry in Beloit, WI in 2011. The original setup was a 454/30 over BBC with an Edelbrock dual quad intake and 2 600 CFM Edelbrock carbs.

The second owner from Blue Springs, MO purchased the car from Kip in September 2012 and replaced the Edelbrock set-up with a Hilborn FI stack intake mated to a MegaSquirt DYI EFI unit. While the Hilborn stacks created a nostalgic look, it was not set-up properly as the Hilborn rectangular ports did not match up to the rectangular head ports, causing the engine to overload with fuel and run too rich.

The third owner, JJ Armstrong, owner of Cali-Motors in Fort Myers, FL purchased the car at a Mecum auction in Kissimmee, FL in January 2017 for resale.

The current owner, Mark Capuano, of Canton, OH acquired the car on trade for a 56 Ford Fairlane gasser in March 2017 and replaced the original 454 with a new completely rebuilt balance and blueprinted 454/30 over BBC with the correct heads from Summit Racing to properly retrofit the existing Hilborn FI system that is now mated to a high-end Holley EFI HP ECU. The current setup produced 542hp and 509Lbf on the Dyno at 5,600 RPM. Converting the car back to a dual 4-barrel carb set-up was considered, but the Hilborn EFI set-up was preferred to retain the nostalgic look. While the car was not Dyno-tested at the rear wheels, it is estimated to produce 460hp to the rear axle. The engine was built by legendary engine builder, Chuck Wright of Pro Car Associates in Akron, Ohio where installation was completed on 2/21/2018 at a total cost of $13,325.00. The engine was fully broken in on the Dyno and, since it was installed, the car has never been raced and in fact has only been taken out a handful of times to local care shows where it is always a big hit and draws a huge crowd.
