The 1951 Kaiser Henry J might have been about offering reasonable economy car to the masses, but this one is the exact opposite. Just legal enough to hang a license plate on it, this custom pro street machine has a NHRA certified chassis and a performance-built Mopar big block.

We bet whoever bought Kaiser's economy brand in the 1950s never thought their budget machines could look this cool. But all you have to do is remove the front bumper, smooth out the front panels, chop inches out of the top, lower the suspension, tub the rear end, custom fabricate a new tail, and voilà, you get a truly cool Henry J. And of course, we see those monstrous scoops peeking out above the hood, but more on all of that in a moment. So yes, there was a lot invested in transforming the body, and they didn't just stop there. Let's not forget that there has been an extra dose of machismo with the extra six inches expertly built into the metal front end. It has all been finished in a high-gloss metallic silver just so it can radiate in the sunlight or moonlight.

The econobox interior has been ditched for a full custom competition setup. You understand that the moment you open the door and see the full 10-point roll cage. The custom bracing and tubbed rear end means there's seating for two, but those buckets are plenty inviting with good bolstering and racing harnesses. As mentioned before, this is a true professional setup, so there's a Painless Performance switch panel, GPS speedo, MSD programmable ignition box, full AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges, and a large Pro-Comp Silver tach with shift light. There's even a B&M ratchet shifter with Shifnoid electronic solenoid. The original Henry J didn't even come with a trunk, but now you have one to hold your fuel cell. While this all might feel like pure performance, you do get power windows for your lightweight Plexiglas replacements.

The butterfly valves instantly tell you this is a car for going fast, but the moment you open the hood, it reminds you this is for showing off, too. The full clamshell tilts forward so you can get a good look at this monster. It's a 440 cubic-inch Mopar V8 stroked to 500ci total. This has the tidy look of performance as you spot the four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock RPM aluminum intake, and a ton of go-fast goodies (call for all the details.) Just know the full package is rated at 650 horsepower, and that's not just for the track. This one runs on pump gas, and the large aluminum radiator with high performance electric fan is there to keep it running cool on the streets. The Powerglide transmission is a full competition build that includes JW 3,500 RPM stall converter, manual valve body, pro trans brake, and line lock. This feeds a fortified Ford 9-inch rear with Strange Engineering axles and 4.11 gears. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll notice the Chris Alston full pro street rectangular chassis. Plus, it's an Alston front suspension with tubular A-arms and a four-link rear with diagonal support. You even get adjustable coilovers and Wilwood disc brakes behind every wheel.

We just don't have the room to go over all the track-ready elements that have gone into this Henry J, so call for all the details. We have the build receipts to prove that this is the kind of custom creation that would cost so much more time and money if you tried to recreate this yourself. So hurry before you miss out.
