About Episode 43

The most epic day of desert bashing in Roadkill Garage history wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. You’ve seen some of the aftermath on Roadkill Extra, but now get the whole story of what happened to the ’70 Dodge known as the Off-Road Challenger (ORC). It survived the 100-year sandstorm that nearly killed David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich, but the E-Body’s 318 engine wasn’t so fortunate–turns out cylinders don’t just self-bore when a pound of sand makes it through the carb. After two years of neglect on the farm, the guys finally get the ORC back into working order with a fresh 360 powerplant and 727 trans from a $1,500 parts truck. If just getting it back up and running wasn’t victory enough, the guys decide to put it to the test in a mud drag race against their blown small-block, Chevy-powered Jeep CJ-5. Will the Off-Road Challenger’s new heart survive another beating and out-mud the Jeep? Find out on this episode of Roadkill Garage.
