Why is any of this on the HAMB?
The 640 XO/PP Virginia HAMB Special. Owner/builder @john mullen . Yes, that's a 6 banger!
Like someone else said, raising the steering box will fix half of your problem. I made this simple box from 3/16 plate to raise my steering box 5...
I could build that Vicky body for ya!
There are lots of cars I'd pay $20K for with no drive train at all! First for me would be a C1 Corvette, or...
1959 Austin Healey Ocean Blue:
Two more points of clarification:
4) Selling when a build is freshly finished will bring top dollar
5) Need room in my two car garage for the next one
What are you going to do with the frame and suspension that's under it?

Yes, it's an inline six.
I recently swapped the bias whitewalls and Merc caps for these just for a more racy look – I love the all business vibe of the mismatched wheels....
@Ahotrod.nz I just remembered there are drip rail installation photos here:...
Thanks for the plug Jason!
Thank you for the very kind words!
I modified a pair of 30/31 tudor sedan drip rails. They were much longer than I needed, but I cut them to the...
Very small update:
Just for fun, I painted the appropriate class and my number of choice (173 in my son's name upside-down) on the quarter windows...
Yes, they do – good eye! They've been doing an annual car show here in Richmond since 1962.
I used to go to Richmond Dragway regularly when I was a kid in the 1970s. Those Sunday afternoons left a lasting impression on me, and are likely...
I totally understand Gary. Just remember, your son is going to need a graduation gift very soon. ;)
That will be a great combo for the road, Gary.
I asked about the rear bolt pattern because I know of a perfect wheel/tire combo for sale that you...
I hope you know I'm just joking. The car really does look awesome, hemi and all! And you've nailed the stance – I wouldn't mess with it. What are...
The car looks killer Gary, and that's a good lookin' small block Chevy! Where'd you pick up the valve covers – they look like they're for a hemi...
A quick Google search tells me the stock tire size for your car is a 670-15 and the OD ratio for a 200R4 is .67.
Coker says their Firestone 670-15...
I'm putting an 87-91 Ford F-150 bench in my 54 F100. It's about 6 inches wider than the stock seat, so it fills the factory gaps between the doors...
Happy to help Tom! Like I said, you don't need to ask me twice to drive that sweet deuce 5W!
Hi Phil, sorry I missed you. Maybe next time.
BTW, John Mullen is the owner, builder and crew chief. I'm just the lucky guy that gets to drive.
Here's an AWESOME video of the 640 XO/PP Virginia HAMB Special pulling into the Jalopyrama indoor show in Easton, Maryland yesterday. The show...
I have a V8 (26 spline) F-Body NWC T-5 between a mildly built 354 Chrysler hemi, and 4.11 posi read, and I've been known to drag race it on...
Here's a pic @atch:
The coupe looks great Tom! Congratulations on the completion of a huge project! I would say now drive the wheels off of it, but for you that goes...
