LS and LT Conversion Specialists
GM late model engine swap kits for cars and trucks
Follow along as we build new projects and update some Iconic American Iron to the LS and LT platform. You can follow their progress on these pages or get quick updates on our MuscleRods FaceBook page.
57 Chevy LT Series
Our 57 Chevy project is a fairly unique vehicle. It's a 210 2 door sedan originally 6 cyl, 3 speed with radio and heater delete. The car has primarily been a mock-up vehicle here at the shop for the last 25 years. It's been used to develop a host of parts - including our LS swap kit nearly 20 years ago. We would primer it from time to time to keep it protected as it waited for it's next use. Well recently, as we were working on our LT conversion kit, the primer had started to get thin and show it's original paint. Several people noticed this and said we should put it on the road just like it is, so that's what we did. Check out the next page for details.
88 Formula Track Car
Our project Formula is your typical enthusiast vehicle. It's had several different engines and drive-trains over the years. And has done everything from daily driver, to drag racer, to it's current configuration as a dedicated track car for weekend road racing and autocross events. Now it has an LS based engine, our long tube headers and a six speed trans. Check out the build shots. Then see how much the performance has improved as the little budget build runs with some of the heavy hitters in the industry.

87 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe Street Car
Our Project Monte SS is a low mileage original owner car that has been in storage for close to 20 years. Well its time to pull it out, dust it off, and update it. We're going to turn it into the Street Super Car that the General intended by pulling out that anemic, 180 hp, 305 small block and replace it with an LS1. The unusual part of this project is that the engine and drive-train will be bone-stock, with only a set of our mid-length headers as performance parts. Follow along as we try to make this swap look like it was factory installed.
More New Stuff to Come.
