This is my very early Venom which I bought as a 'barn find' as you can see from the early pictures it was only partially complete and having passed through a couple of hands it was frankly in a mess despite previous owners having spent £12k on the car ! The engine is a Pontiac 455 V8 [ 7.5 litre ] as used in the famous Pontiac GTO. It was fully rebored and rebuilt with a modified cam and has a 4 barrell Holley carb with a Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition conversion.


The entire car was rebuilt here at CreativeSportsCars with quite a few custom made parts particularly to get the engine fitted correctly. 


the transmission is one of the dragsters favourites.. A 3 speed Turbo Hydramatic 350

with a quick shift valve kit topped off with a Hurst Promatic 2 ratchet shifter.


the rear end is pretty much standard Granada Scorpio typical of the early Venoms. Wheels are OZ racing with custom made spacers to fit the Ford hubs.

The interior was all custom made in house and is covered in a material very similar to Alcantara as used in top end supercars. Seats are from a Celica GT and were recovered by a specialist to match. They fit really well both stylistically and physically.

So if you have an early Venom you thought was beyond saving, hopefully this will provide some inspiration. As you can see it's certainly possible to complete one to an impressive standard. If you are stuck and would like us to take on part or all of the buildwork then I would be happy to discuss that with you. Advice is always free of charge so don't be afraid to ask.
