"The Tyrant", HPI Customs' '66 Chrysler Imperial
"Dubbed 'The Tyrant' and built by Tyler Scarfe and HPI Customs out of Beausejour, Manitoba, this example of Mopar royalty started out as a 1966 Imperial. Upon the start of its 3500-hour makeover, a new chassis was built with a front suspension from Speedtech Performance with AFX tall spindles. Rear end is a full-floater Ford 9-inch built by Speedway Engineering with an aluminum center section and outer hubs from a Corvette ZR1. The Viper motor, itself having beaucoup de chevaux, has a few more added horses via a Paxton supercharger. Those horses are harnessed through a TCI Auto 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters and put down on fat treads on Schott Wheels."
The Tyrant features our Speedtech Hot Rod Subframe which incorporates our high clearance 1st gen Camaro based suspension, AFX tall spindles, and rack and pinion steering. Out back it sports a custom modified Speedtech Torque Arm suspension and our super tough Chicane full floating 9" Ford rear axle.
