413 was the original displacement for the RB block.
383, 413, 426, 440.
Was gonna give you some specs on that 707 but my Motor's Manual only covers 1936 to 1946. 477 is the biggest GMC engine they list for that time....
You forgot about the GA series Ford engines from WWII. V8 version of a R-R V-1650, it displaced 1100 cubes and made 500 HP.

...I'm sorry, was I not supposed to do that?
The only difference between a "marine" engine and an "automotive" engine are two plastic "clips" or "shields".
One mounts on the battery positive...
Wide meats on front driver rims...nice touch.
I had a '65 big window long bed with the granny 4-speed and the "E" motor for a short time in the late 80's.
Good ol' rig. Used to belong to an...
Sweet rides, FrankenRodz and Hot Rod Punk. =)

There's a famous song about your home town.
Thanks for the info on the 235 cr. I never knew it went over 8:1. All stats I've ever seen say...
Nice work, Gimpy!
So that engine features TBI? Who's did you use?
You reduced the 235's cr to 7.5? I thought that was a pretty standard ratio for those engines through most of their life.
Sorry Fordfltrucknut, I didn't think about your truck being a 4X.
If it was 2WD it would've been easier to fit in your truck.
...something about that air cleaner strikes a familiar chord....;)
...just think if you'd had put all those speed parts in a 250.
Nice rig, though....fellow 4X nut, fellow drummer. -b
Front clip reminds me of Harrison Ford's '55 from American Graffiti.
...ever since American Grafitti, I've loved the '58...but it just ain't right if it doesn't have the taillights in the roof. ;)
...and just like that The HAMB becomes The Fordson Fan Site. :rolleyes:
Ah, thanks Aus. -b
Cool pics. What's the black thing next to the carb in the engine picture? Looks like some kind of filter housing.
Thank you for explaining that.
I've heard rumors about Hall-Scott building motors for Ford in the past, but always shluffed them off as BS. I...
Congrats Paintman! -b
Not my truck, but just found this article on a nice little '66 shortbed in my email.
It's from Ford-Trucks.com....
Wow, you're doing an A #1 job LaSucia64. That interior shot is one to die for.
Please, keep up the good work. -b
That sounds like a job for a T-18! ( ;) )
That truck looks brand...

I didn't see the Rochester-style units mentioned at the website, only the...
Thanks for the heads up on the FI units, diceman!
Also found Autotrend EFI is doing a Stromberg-style throttle body.
Love everything about this truck. The only thing that would make it sweeter would be if the 352 were a 223.
Even though my dad had a Chevy that,...
