JP yes it is an Offenhauser 360-not sure how great it is performance wise but I am kind of old school. Found it on ebay. 427 sleeper I prefer Jim and the color is PPG tri-coat candy apple red. They no longer offer the color. Every picture seems a bit different. In the sun, the candy pops-depending on the angle. I have had a couple of girls ask me the color since they would like nail polish in that color. Kind of makes me chuckle. My buddy got a new GMC pickup and the color is close although it is not a true candy and there is not as much flake. If I had to repaint the car (and I hope I don't have to) I would use the GMC color and shoot if over a aztec gold base and add some flake or diamond dust which is what PPG did in the original mix of tri-coat candy apple red. Dan the Buckshot car is the original deal-great car with great history. I believe the car is in Pennsylvania. Doug, the guys in my car club kid me about cutting the hole-one guy was there when I did it and he thought I was nuts. I had no shake and no qualms about cutting the hole. It was just a necessary deal. I have pictures of that hood before I repaired it. The car was an old drag car out of New Mexico and ran modified production in the 70s. It had a hole that was like 18" by 30" or something silly. Went through a lot of work to make it "stock". Colin glad you took the plunge with the scoop. Vetrod has one like it and modified drag cars are flat out cool IMO.
