It was called the Mallet 327 after the HP the engine is supposed to produce, you may have seen pictures of it already, it is Mean Yellow, and was used to advertise Norms Fiberglass parts for some time. Here are some pictures of it from the web. The owner is a member here I beleive.

Jeff the only suggestion I can make is adding some other V8 category's. For example I remember that V8 Archie (from the Fiero world), built at least one, possible more. Then there was the Solbra V8s, and of course examples from DDM (no longer does V8), PAW, and I think the newest place is Kappa Haus. But they also run the Kappa Swap group on FB.

The main reason I'm suggesting adding other V8 categories is because I'd like to know how many V8 Kappa's are running around. Also I would thing including other categories would promote using the Kappa platform among hot rodders in general.

Still call it the Mallet Registry, but include other V8 categories for increased traffic. Anyway jus an idea.

I have started to gather info on Mallet Converted Kappa's Similar to the Solstice Coupe Registry. So Far I have a very incomplete list with 13 Solstice, & a Single Sky listed.

If anyone would like to add there cars to it PM me. If there is enough interest I can post what I have here or in another section of the Forum. But this section seemed to be the Logical place to start. Any Ideas or tips always welcome

The cars I have on it so far are
2006 - #001, #004, #006, #013, #15, #021 (only that it exists in NJ?) #023, #024, #033, #035, #041
2007 - Solstice #006, & Sky #009
2008 - Solstice #001 the only 4 cylinder car.
Hi! I recently purchased Mallett Solstice #013. How do I join the registry?

Congratulations on your new to you Mallet ! Did you just buy it a Mecum? If so Great looking car. I have this info on it
Year N/A or GXP # Engine Trans Milege location owner color original options
2006Base Solstice13LS7 TurboT6060?Mecum Monterey????Mean YellowBig Brake Kit, Adjustable Mallet/Penske Shocks

I can update it with any other info you car to send, I keep personal info to myself - and so far it is not large enough to share on line, so far I have eleven 2006 Solstice's, one 2007 & one 2008 Solstice, and three 2007 Sky's .

Welcome to the fun little community! Have you gotten to drive it much? My car 2006 #24 has the base LS2 so about 100 less HP than 2006 #013.

You can PM me any details you do not want publicly Shared.

That is not a bad Idea, so far I haven't been able to spend much time on it, But I did add a 2007 Blue Mallet Sky in Michigan to it last month. so far just 16 cars out of ???? 300? LOL!

Hi Jeff! I just bought Mallett Solstice #013. If you send me your contact info I can scan and send you the original base car build sheet and the Mallett invoice listing $143K in modifications. Thanks! Thomas Berry 949-300-0218 [email protected]

From what I understand about this car it is a Twin Turbo LS7 car. But I agree the $143K does sound fantastic, but if it includes the purchase price of the Solstice & shipping that would be around $30K off of the $143

My car is only a LS2 car with A/C & Non Adjustable Penske/Mallet shocks if you include the purchase price of the car & delivery came to over $54K in 2006. So if you add the LS7 engine, the Twin Turbo, Tremec 6-speed transmission, Penske/Mallet adjustable shocks with remote reservoir's, Mallet Big Brake's, and the Mallet 19" wheels, plus I beleive it was delivered to the original owner with modified Body parts & a repaint. I believe it was the most expensive conversion done by Mallet. I would love to see a copy of the mallet invoice. I also assume it will include some dyno tuning time.

Well I stand corrected, 2006 #013 does indeed have $143K worth of mods done to it. Thanks for sending the copy of the invoice. I never knew they did things like move the rear frame rails inboard 4" to fit wider rear wheels & tires.

Incredible

Hi again Jeff. Can you post all of the cars you have so far with some of the basic info: year, model, engine, transmission, etc.? The seller of Solstice #025 at Gateway Classic Cars claims that this car is only one of 2 LS7 Solstices produced? I’ve tried to contact Mallett Performance Cars for any production records....but, they have not replied to my inquires.

A bit late, but I finally added the info on the cars I have so far to the 1st post on this thread. As always any ideas for improvements welcome.

I am also open to adding non Mallet cars to the list,perhaps then I can then change it to a" V8 Kappa List"

Jeff: I know it is hard to get information on where cars are located but it would be nice if you could at least get what state. I have the same trouble getting information for the coupe registry. I get the information but not owners name or current location. Hopefully your people will keep you updated. Did the administrators make it so you can edit at any time instead of having to make a new post after 30 days? That really made my job much easier and I can actually post daily if I get new listings. Hope to cya soon
