The custom fiberglass body built by ScottRods sits on a custom frame and is made to resemble a first-generation Fiat 500 minicar. Cloaking the exterior of this drag car's custom body is a black and purple two-tone paint job along with a silver "pinstripe" separating the two colors that is actually a full verse from Corinthians. Even more, this car was piloted by a chaplain the last time it made a pass down the track. For those that aren't religious but would rock this modernized old-school Fiat drag car, just know that all of the decals can easily be removed. The exterior also features an ultra-long hood, huge hood scoop, and wheelie bars.

Powering this insane drag car is a Dart Big M block 540cui V8 engine topped with a huge Quick Fuel 1150 CFM four-barrel carburetor along with plenty of other modifications. Shifting power is provided by a Powerglide transmission with TCI valve body, as well as input and output shafts. The Hurst Quarter Stick shifter is complete with line lock and trans brake that will help nab consistent runs down the quarter-mile. The hood lifts straight up, and the front end tilts forward to allow easy access to the potent powerplant. Mechanical highlights include Brodix BB2 Plus cylinder heads, Cloyes gear drive cam, ARP main and head studs, a forged steel crank, bronze bushing full floating pins, SFI flex plate, and an MSD 7AL-3 ignition control system. Start the car and watch people jump as the custom headers roar to life. Power is sent down to a Moser 9-inch rear 35-spline axle with a 4.10 ratio. In addition, the car is equipped with a Heidts independent front suspension, Chris Alston four-link rear, adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Important vital signs are monitored by the AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges along with an important tachometer mounted in the middle of the dashboard. The car is titled as a 2019 HOMEM SPCON.
