About The Car: 702cid V12 powered with a hand-formed aluminum body. Also features a glass grille and hand-blown glass taillights. A 20ft long, 8ft wide rolling sculpture. The B-702 is the latest creation from the Blastolene Brothers, Michael Leeds and Randy Grubb. The B-702, designed by Leeds, was inspired by the great French cars of the 1930's. The size of the car is surprising at 19.5 feet long and the 94" width makes a powerful impact. The dramatic separation between the body and pod-style front fenders is further highlighted by the glass grille bars and woodlight headlights. The 702cid V12 was produced from 1960-1965 by GMC for use in 2 ½ ton medium-duty trucks, producing 650 ft/lbs of torque at 850rpm on regular gasoline. A modern Allison 4-speed sends power to a 9" Ford Currie rear end. 4-wheel power disc brakes and power steering makes the 4,800lb car drive like a dream. This uniquely American creation is a true one-of-a-kind coach-built masterpiece.
