Angelo Furfaro's twin-turbo NASCAR-powered Mopar VC Valiant is street elite perfection. A BIT over 10 years ago, Angelo Furfaro bought himself a 273ci, V8-powered '67 Valiant as an occasional cruiser. It was a real survivor, "a mint body with very little rust, and all the hard stuff like glass and moulds were all pretty good."

At the time he was driving a stout '63 Nova and enjoyed cruising with his wife and two boys to the drags, street meets, Sunday morning coffee runs - everywhere! Inspired by the Pro Street scene, Angelo decided to build the VC Valiant into something on a whole other level. The original theme was a silver exterior with a black vinyl roof, black interior and a pair of turbos for the 273. That all changed on the back of some wise advice.

Peter Teague from PET Racing talked Angelo out of working the old 273 and sold him on the idea of an ex-NASCAR mill instead. With that 358ci beast no longer revving to 9000rpm, the original five-stage dry sump was reconfigured to a three-stage system, with its reservoir tank mounted up under the passenger-side fender. By keeping the turbos small, it's on-boost by 1800rpm. PET also took compression and cam out of it so it would happily run on 95-octane E10 but still pump out near 750 horses on 6psi, with a good bit more to come.

Eliminator Rod & Custom knocked up a removable radiator support and front assembly - a couple of hoses and a handful of bolts and just about the whole front of the car comes off in one piece. From there the engine and super strong 727 Torqueflite can be easily removed as a single unit. The driveline-related fab work was performed by Pro Street Development, whose handiwork included the headers, transmission mount, and sheet-metal nine-inch filled with a Truetrac centre, massive 35-spline axles and Race Products full-floating ends.

The very tidy boot houses twin brake boosters on the right, a 100L tank in the middle and the battery on the left. The boot hinges have been relocated and the underside of the bootlid is smoothed - just like under the bonnet. The red knob on the passenger side is a battery isolator switch.

Peter and the crew at Stylerod Panels spent many hours fine-tuning the panel gaps and fettling the body into its current arrow-straight form. They then rolled the car into their booth to lay on that sensational one-off shade of silver. Emmanuel from the Trim Shop, radically modified the original front bench to look like a pair of buckets wrapped in blue Nappa leather trim. The car features push-button start panel, Lokar accelerator, original steering wheel, B&M shifter, programmable Auto Meter gauges and Wilwood pedal box with remote master cylinder.

PROVC has undergone serious re-engineering. Rod-Tech custom-built a double A-arm front end with rack-and-pinion steering to take the place of the original torsion bar arrangement. Out back there's a four-bar set-up, complete with Watt's link. Controlling it all is a set of killer Penske shocks by Bill at North Terrace Tyres. The engine has been set back several inches, and to tuck everything up out of harm's way, a new complete raised floor was fashioned. The sill panels now wrap right under and extend across to the original chassis rails. Triangular panels have also been added at each corner to further anchor everything.

The front rails have been box-plated, while the beefy new rear crossmember and the gearbox crossmember are tied together with a sturdy chrome-moly X-brace. On top of all this there's a six-point rollcage tucked up inside. This is one mighty stiff VC Valiant that's also way better balanced.

In the Street Elite Showcase at MotorEx 2019, PROVC picked up gold medals in Body, Engineering and Engine Bay. It also snagged the Street Machine/Muscle Care Pinnacle award as well as the Laurie Starling award - what a haul! Fully engineered with full Victorian registration.
