Billetproof 2009: GM 502-Powered Divco Delivery Van

We found ourselves at Billetproof Michigan this weekend, soaking up the vintage rodding wonderfulness. Let's start on the calm end of things with this GM 502 cubic-inch V8-powered Divco delivery van. It makes all the sense in the world.

We briefly spoke with the genius behind this beast, who said his Divco had gotten up to 147 MPH and is more aerodynamic than it looks, like a giant PT. Well, sure, but it's also more muscle car than Divco. We're loving the original flip and fold seats inside, though the notion of high speed runs on a stool without seatbelts makes this guy a special kind of crazy. Well, until you realize a 572 cubic-inch monster mill is on order and should make this even more unhinged.
