Jordan Fisher has been into anything with an engine his whole life. He started drag racing in 2016 with his 1979 Chevy Camaro that he restored and turned into a drag car with his dad. The car was originally his mom’s first car in high school.
After racing the Camaro for several years and dipping into the 7-second quarter-mile range, he knew he wanted to build something you don’t see at the race track every day. He found a 1973 Postal Jeep body and decided to go for it.
He started with just the body, which he picked up in Virginia. Then, he came home and put it in a 1979 Camaro subframe. He built everything off the subframe rear box tube frame. He also built a 7.50 cert chromoly cage. The engine is a big block Chevy 632c.i. backed with a Powerglide transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear with 40 spline gun drilled axles on 28×10.5 radials tires. Currently, he is running no time grudge racing.
