Hemi-Powered, Supercharged Henry J Sounds Divine

Remember Ted Dzus' restomod Kaiser Henry J we wrote about back in April? Well, the orange beast is back in a four-minute video that will blow all you hot rod fanatics away!

As you might recall, this ill-fated economy car was completely overhauled and fitted with a huge 8.6-liter (528 cubic inch) Hemi V8 engine and a Vortech V-4 X supercharger where its small inline-four or six-cylinder unit used to sit.

A set of Weld Racing RT-S wheels, disc brakes, a custom-built roll cage and bespoke interior features were also added to transform this 62-year-old vehicle into a 21st century hot rod.

While we fancy the original Henry J, we're aware that some of you might not like the design, even with all those modern updates to it, but you'd be absolutely crazy not to like the way this vehicle sounds with that Hemi under the hood.
