    I've seen this chassis in person and it's way cool. I hope he can find the Allisons to finish it. I'm pretty certain the owner wants to remain anonymous but he knows who I am and I have a lead for him on some engines if he wants.

    "In 1965, you could buy Allisons all day long for 50 to 150 bucks"

    Now- "They’re getting 40 grand for a used, 60-year-old engine"
