    Moving along got the wheel wells and inside rear fenders edged in and wheel wells lined,
    Gonna do the GM 350 for now because of time I need to get my shop opened up for customers that are waiting, I've got a slant 6 forged crank I'm going to build and super charge it
    Next winter's project.
    I've only been working on it for 34 days, taking it to school next week and spray it 20190430_212140.jpeg 20190430_212125.jpeg 20190419_090808.jpeg

    I think the 289 would be great! On the /6, I have a vague memory that a 195 crank in a 225 strokes it to 250, but it's been a long time since I've looked at them.

    If you would have offset the small block Mopar 1 1/2" to the right, it fits as easily as any GM motor.
    I've done more then a few, in the door, change the motor, trans, rear end, and update the brakes, and driving down the road in less then a month. Having parts on hand sure helped. Not the Mopar's fault you spent too much time trying to install the Stude motor. Gene

    On my '48 Plym I had to move the steering column to the left & use a couple of u joints to get the 331 in, had a Chevelle/cutlass subframe though.

    Do you think dodge dart headers would fit ok? I have a set of those I kept when my dart was sold. I will need to find manifolds if I have to use those.

    Booster and master cylinder was from summit racing, and pedal from a 2003 jeep tj wrangler with automatic transmission.
    Disc brake kit and shock kit from rusty hope.
    I made a slight change from his hoses i used 83 Chevy c10 hoses they will work a little bit better i think, ill post some pics tomorrow.

    Well i haven't posted anything for a while had some medical issues that got in the way and im about 2 weeks away from the finish line,
    I got my new wheels from wheelsmith and just picked them up from the powder coater they look really nice, got my fan shroud made and rad installed.
    Going to finish the brakes up tomorrow, and hook up the hoses and get the wiring finished up this week. 20190713_155422.jpeg 20190713_155432.jpeg 20190713_155427.jpeg 20190712_132905.jpeg 20190629_160151.jpeg 20190629_160138.jpeg

  17. Very nice work Marvin. Your photos of the brake booster and master cylinder placement are helpful to my '49 Coronet project. If you could slip in an interior shot of the brake pedal, that would be of great benefit.
