And surprisingly after all these years, the phone booth’s engine still runs; in fact, the big block General Motors V8 is said to be quite the howler. The burly eight affixes giant velocity stacks and four carburetors, however this was the ’70s and ‘80s we’re talking about. Horsepower is estimated at around 380 hp.
A three-speed TH350 automatic transmission funnels that power to a set of hefty Goodyear drag slicks. Appropriately, the rod’s gas pedal has been swapped out for a phone receiver. Brilliant. Along those lines, the booth, which is itself a vintage 1970s North Electric model, still retains its original phone and phonebook.
It’s a car that clearly falls into the “you don’t see that everyday” category, and for that we can all be thankful to have caught a glimpse.
