    I am looking for a little help trying to get mor info about a 1933 Ford
    has a 429 Cobra Jet motor, 4 link, pretty fun car...

    Starting to do some work on it and looking for more info on the car in general. I heard it used to race at the following places
    • QUEEN WILHELMINA ROAD RACE 2009
    • The NAVASOTO DRAG STRIP MAR. 2011
    Anybody know anything about the car or who built it?

    Sounds like it could be a fun car, but one thing for sure it looks like it didn't fare too well in the QUEEN WILHELMINA ROAD RACE !

    Navasota drag strip is a pretty small off the beaten path track here in Tx.

    Hoping I can find somebody who might know the previous owner/builder
     
  6. There was a thread on here a few months back about that car. The OP was (best I remember) looking to buy it and wanted opinions. Don't recall the thread title, sorry.

    The 429/460 can make 1000 hp with one dom carb with proper head flow. Several companys still build the old BBF and the FE'S are still out there at a high price.
