I have been collecting drive train parts for a long time, with plans of building a Street/Drag Hot Rod. A year ago, I was fortunate to buy an older restoration, that was dissembled. With pretty nice sheet metal (no plans to re-paint) at this time, my two favorite RPU's are Dean Lowe's and Jim Stevens, and my goal is to build something along the lines of these exemplary, historic trucks. I have been in and out of Drag Racing for 55 years, racing everything from a Honda 50 to a Nostalgia T/F Dragster, and can't wait to drop the clutch @ 7,000 ! The plan is to have 2 complete engine/trans combo's, from the tip of the fan to the tail of the transmissions, with headers on each one. My race engine (shown) is a 355", Dart Iron Eagle Heads, JE pistons, 6"rods, Scat crank, Hilborn Injector, Vertex Mag. The street engine will be a 327 or 350, with a Weiand Cross Ram, with 390 Holley carbs, and Vertex as well. Both have scattershield bells, and are backed by wide ratio Ford Toploaders. The rear axle is a 301 Halibrand, with 4C Racing wide 5 hubs, drum brakes and a locker. Well, so much for the lead in, time to get to work, construction pics in the morning, I got a good start today !
