Photo Gallery: A Virtual Tour of the Private Lingenfelter Car Collection

Ken Lingenfelter, in addition to owning Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, also owns a private, world-class auto collection.

The cousin of Lingenfelter Performance founder and former NHRA driver John Lingenfelter, Ken acquired the performance mod shop in 2008.

Today, we are fortunate to get a virtual tour of Ken Lingenfelter’s car collection thanks to Summit Racing’s Al Noe, who visited the collection back in February.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The Randall Brothers was a dealership in Mesa, Arizona that converted 304 CI Gremlin X’s to a 401 CI monster. The 401’s were never “factory” in a Gremlin, but were in the Javelin and Matador. (SOURCE: thelingenfeltercollection.com)
AMC sent 20 401 engines to the Randall Brothers for conversions, making the original 401-XR’s extremely rare. X stood for the AMC factory appearance package and R for Randall Brothers. XR’s ran the ¼ mile at 117 mph in 12.3 seconds (SOURCE: thelingenfeltercollection.com)
