Mark has treated the free Hemi right, starting with a .030" overbore, then topping it with a 6-71 supercharger and manifold from BDS. It also sports an all-COMP Cams Valvetrain and Mopar Performance cylinder heads.

From a straight-on view, hot rod tradition meets pure intimidation. Check out the 
383’s unique twin intake scoops and the coupe’s increasingly rare un-chopped top. “I had the pillars marked with tape where we were going to make the cuts, but the guy who agreed to help me never showed up!” Snode said.  “And I’m glad he didn’t, because I think it looks right like this.”

  Every hot rod build has its story: some are basket case barn finds, and others are passed down through the family. But in the case of Mike Snode’s 1930 […]
