Then there is always the 368 Lincoln Y-block.
25 tooth indicates the popular old Lincoln Zephyr gear set. Getting away from the straight cut '32 gears is definitely a plus. I wouldn't trust...
Does it have "Culver City" cast into it? Several years back I got $3,000 for an original unused CC Halibrand.
Just beautiful. The Wayne 12-port will make it really stand out.
It has been said before, "You can never be too thin, too rich or have too much horsepower".

Well done. This is one of the best threads I've seen on here in a long time.

Are you going to be able to get a Wayne head for your Jimmy? Those were the hot setup back in the day.
You are right on. Many of us. Don't forget Vista Del Mar between Manhattan Beach and Playa Del Rey.
