That engine height and stack combo looks right on, nice job on that.
Man thats gonna be a cool machine!
Looks Perfect!!!!! those stacks will look killer peeping out a bit. Well done!
got a few pics to share of the engine and what has been done this weekend. i like how the hilborn stacks just peek over hood but may have wanted 1/2 more...still have to finish the hole in hood and im going to run a 5 1/16 rod around opening and the blend it in to give the hood opening some style..
That's looking awsome
Welcome to the world of constant flow injection. That was quite a change you made in two months. With the Hilborn setup, you will definitely be needed that magneto now. You car sure has made big strides since you started working on it. Sooooo, ready for the CHRR this year?
im hopping to have car going this summer, so game on for the fun shows.
old 55 gassers are cool. i had the original magnum speed shop car, pics are on my profile. it was way to far gone to fix. i would like to build a 55 though, 2 door post after my 65 ss is done. cool project man. cant wait to see it when its done.
Looks great. Love all the old gassers.
Lookin great man, diggin it alot!!!
Interesting thread and car. Will be cool to see where it goes.
Car is shaping up killer. What brand of water pump is that?
It is a hawks pump i bought at the pomona swap meet...scored it for 40 bucks...kinda neet pump..
Things looking bitchin' man! Dig the stacks.
...really coming along fine-keep up the great work !!!! cannot wait to see a video of it running someday !!!
Nice progress....I agree...just a lil more height on the stacks through the hood.........but lookin great
another engine pic, Im going to still run my red scoop so the height of stacks works where they are. was a tough choice
got a few things done this weekend, Got my scoop roughed in and made a smooth firewall to cover the all the openings , just needs a little finishing and puddy and paint.
Looking really great!
AWSome just totally AWSOME
I like it alot!
