[/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG]So a LONG time family friend is recently divorced and needed to get rid of his 1941 Willy's truck (some of you know how that is). I knew they aren't common, but I asked for the sticker price. He shoots off with 15. I said, "15 thousand is a little out of my price range", he corrected me by saying "No, 15 hundred..." I couldn't get in my car fast enough to go grab the cash for it. He even said I could leave it in storage at his place as long as I needed to. AND he is giving me a 40' as a parts truck (it is a parts truck for sure, but future rat rod) My motivation and excitement builds... The truck has been in storage for about 40 years. It is straight and has the original GO DEVIL 4 cyl in it. There are no rust holes, straight body, but the bed has a bent spot in it. That is going to be replaced, we already found a source for the bed. BUT I need some help with the engine. I would like to get more than 50 MPH out of it. I know it is 6.5-1 compression currently. I am not sure how much you can safely raise compression before you start damaging internals, head gaskets, ect. Also a port and polish is looking better and better. I know there probably isn't much support for these but I am willing to leave the 4 cyl in there even if the top speed is going to be 50mph at 8,000rpm. I haven't seen any of these with the original motor, that is why I am. Is there any info on 4 cyl GO DEVIL's or is there an old timer that knows a lot about these? I know from experience that for every car/truck there is some one who has worked them inside and out and his knowledge is not online some where or in any book. Thanks guys. Happy hot rodding.
