Team Mullens Take Home PPG Dream Car Award

Darryl and Amy Mullens purchased his '63 Chevrolet Nova more than 41 years ago and it has been a labor of love ever since. The car underwent numerous changes throughout its life to eventually getting to what it is today; a dream car. Darryl and Amy main­tained their focus, which landed them the PPG Dream Car Award at Goodguys 24th Heartland Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa.

Under the hood of this beauty sits a Hilborn-fed, Dyers-­blown, MSD-sparked 355 Chevy V8 with a Howards 4340 crank spinning Carrillo rods with Wiseco pis­tons and an Isky cam. Trick flow heads vent through 2 1/2-inch HPC-coated headers massaged by Darryl’s old friend Dan Dubs. Multiplying the horsepower is an equally stout 700R4 automatic gearbox.

“Des Moines was my first rod & custom event showing a car in 30 years,” Darryl said. “It was a dream weekend. The only thing missing was Amy. She had to stay home for work. But she was here with me in spirit!”

Although Amy Mullens couldn;t make the trip I'm sure she was more than excited to see Daryl and their labor of love take home ethe gold.
