    So I have sold my 331 and supercharger to buy this...1969 428 cobra jet..real deal..looks like the 5 speed is going away for a built c-6 with a brake...should be a real wheel stander..
    Plans for this motor include a set of aluminum edelbrock heads and a bigger bump stick..maybe 2 fours..[​IMG] [​IMG]

    KOOL,that engine is what should be in the FALCON!!! ROY.
     
  4. Bingo. Perfect Engine choice. Nothing like a big snarling FE to get a small compact car moving quickly.

    Cool Build. Keep up the good work.

    Looking good. That 428 should make her scream.

    Very neat bends on your 2X3 tubing, Rooster. Are those Alston or were you able to mandrel-shape them?
    Kudos on your FE choice, BTW...I'm building a 406 as we speak.
