Video: Year One Can Get You Ready For The Pure Stock Drags


This year’s Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race (PSMCDR) has come and gone, but Year One can help get your stock-appearing sleeper ready to go for their 25th annual race next year.

The rules to participate in the PSMCDR are stringent, although a flip through the Year One catalog can easily get your muscle where it needs to be. For example, the interior must be factory-correct and functional. Year One’s full lineup of interior upholstery, carpet, and plastic parts has you covered there. The engine must appear factory-correct, so take a look at their assortment of engine paints and under-hood decals. Even the suspension has to be just as Ma Mopar intended, so flip to that section for reproduction shocks, leaf springs, and rebuild kits.

Jim Keyes’ red ’67 Hemi Coronet R/T is a perennial participant at the PSMCDR. This ride-along video gives you a passenger’s view as the brute burns down the quarter mile in 11.71 seconds, nearly hitting 121 mph. Not bad for a car that looks like it just came off the showroom floor in its unsuspecting red-line skinnies and poverty caps. Jim would know exactly what that looks like since his name is the only one to ever grace the title!

Kent grew up in the shop with his old man and his '70 Charger R/T. His first car was a 1969 Super Bee project when Kent was fourteen. That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.
