The Jalopy Journal
Did a few "like for like" engine swaps, pulled a 326 Poncho and replaced it with a 455 in a customers o.t. car, pulled a 302 & C4 and installed a...
Danny, something like this might be just what you need.[ATTACH]
One 1956 Crown Vic and about 5 427 Ford Cammers.
I can imagine this with one of the AMC 304? v-8s, a 4 speed and decent rear end. Fun stuff!
Maybe with a bit of chainsaw action?
She's alive! I bet your car will be a lot more fun to drive with the newer drivetrain.
(In Mr. Rogers voice) "Can you say Sleeper? Sure.":D
Plenny a room for that, looks like. Is it at installed height?
I guess it depends on where you are. That car would go for $5,000 easy over here.
Guilty, I have a 1971 429 Ford block and crank, a pair of 1970 429 heads and a flywheel just hoping for an old '50s or early '60s F100 to give...
Here's food for thought...
When I rebuilt the '70 429 Ford in my avatar, its first trip was cross country pulling a trailer so I looked up cam specs for that task, settled...
How well does it fit the contours of the bumpers? The one shown doesn't look right for 1957.
Nice motor! 4 bolt mains too! That ought to give you all the grunt needed to haul trash, haul ass, whichever needed. What cam are you going to run?
I still like the outrigger rear fenders...:eek::D:rolleyes:
Nice looking truck!
Man thats some cool looking stuff!
Timing is everything!:D
My first car with a factory 8 track tape player was a '70 SS Chevelle when I was in the Navy-mid '70s. Its amazing how easy it was to jam up while...
Seeing this picture reminded me of advertisements I heard on the radio when these cars were new about how strong the bumpers were. I was a little...
Wow, never woulda thought I'd see Industrial Electronics on the HAMB! Love that place!
Its good to see you're back! Last I recall you'd installed the Ford engine and transmission, looking forward to seeing more progress on your car....
Are you going to use a TH400 behind it?
Its good to see you still work on it. I was thinking of this truck recently and knowing its knocking down some miles is cool. Congrats...
"I'm not real happy with the ride height..."
Agreed, a little "applied slammage" will go a long way.:D[ATTACH]
Cool! What year DeSoto?
True that and my truck was quite the journey, both in patience and expenditures. After I bought my avatar for $275 in 1980, I found the stuck...
Its good to see you're back on it, I was just thinking about this car the other day.
A couple of friends of mine who live in Virginia were there, both hard core gearheads like me. This was their first event seeing old style Gasser...
