    Thanks guys. I'm planning on only 2 gauges on mine. Oil and tach.

    I would think a metal line instead of the nylon/plastic oil pressure line.. I realize the soft line is I guess more pliable but melting it if you were to burp the blower but I guess if you got lift off and fire it won't matter....

    Ditto. 75 miles for me. Would walk to a bigger street than the one I lived on to hang out at the newstand hoping to see some cool cars when the owners would stop in for a soda or cigs.

  4. That looks like the Davis/Ingram Jewel "T" in the other lane, although I've never seen a picture of it with a small block in it.

    1966-67 Irwindale 001.jpg Does anyone remember this Anglia Panel? This was Irwindale 1966-67. I think it had a bb chevy. He put it up on the back bumper this day. It shook him up pretty good. He stopped, got out, and walked around for a bit.

    Love how the steering runs between the manifold and vally pan.
    Engineering at it's best!

    Looks like the steering box is up-side down with the arm up and no U joint just a straight rod to the front end

    His interviews were the best how are you doing today Eddie ' Oh boy we are having fun today' and how cool is that

    Its too bad that they went to those little mini cars , as they just don't look like gassers

    And after that they just faded away, what a shame

    "Love how the steering runs between the manifold and valley pan."

    Probably setting up for the dual engines.

    I didn't realize it had crashed I've read some articles on it in the past I believe from what I was understanding that his suspension was mainly stock configuration, I was looking for some ideas for my car when I decided to take it from stock to the other side....You just can't thumb threw magazines for ideas as you do with normal cars.... I see in the latest form the rear fenders are opened up I would like to find a good pic of that as that's what is planned for mine.... I'm going with a tube front axle ,coilovers , four bar set up with the coil overs mounting up in the original coil spring pockets I'm wanting it to sit fairly low with the tunnel rammed SB moved back 10% ,scatter shield, M-22,and Dana 60 mounted to s-10 leafs via floaters and lift bars and Carrara 50/50's thanks for the info...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    For those of us in the Studebaker world Ted is one of the good guys. I saw him last week at the York Studebaker Swap Meet.

    I actually got to work on Ted's car in the mid/late 90's when I was at Bill Carter's Automotion shop on the south side of Indy.

    If you scroll down through that thread there are a couple of pictures of the injected small block version on page 4 (post #110). Lots of other variations too--roll bar, rear wheels (Americans vs. Cragars or Halibrands).

    Gary Cochran in his "Roy" (SPE) car. He later purchased the second back motor car built by Fjasted. His one and only rear engine car has since been restored by Al Nosse.
