The inaugural SEMA Battle of the Builders champion Kyle Tucker of Detroit Speed Engineering returned to compete in the competition in 2015, this time with two iconic American musclecars—a ’70 Chevelle and ’69 Charger—both showcasing extreme talent and craftsmanship when it comes to vehicle modification.
The ’70 Chevelle wowed the judges, making it among the top-10 builds, complete with an LSX 427 supercharged engine and paddle-shifted GM Bowler 4L80E transmission, as well as a Borla exhaust, Detroit Speed suspension/chassis, Forgeline wheels, Michelin tires, brakes by Brembo and Bosch, PPG paint, Joe Gibbs DRIVEN engine oil, Royal Purple trans fluid, Recaro seats and an Alpine stereo.
