Over the next few months I’ll be detailing my AK build on these pages. I’ll try and do it in a logical manner just the way that I build the car and although not everyone who reads this will be building an AK I hope that they will get a good understanding of what's involved.
My AK has a modified chassis and body which was designed and built at the AK factory especially to give me some more room. I specified it in black gel coal with stainless steel engine bay cladding and holes cut for a single width roll bar behind the driver. I will be making a flat bottomed dash with black faced ETB instruments and covered in black leather. The seats and carpet will also be black. The engine will be a stroked Chevrolet small block of 383 C.I. This will be a fuel injected engine and I’ll be using four twin Jenvey throttle bodies and Megasquirt ecu. The gearbox is Getrag with an adapter plate. The suspension is Jaguar XJ6 based and my 3.31 diff has been fully reconditioned by Russel Ram. I’ll put more info here as and when I need to, thanks for looking.
