    Hope to see more of this! My old Econoline was one of the most fun vehicles I have ever driven, if not the most.

    I grew up working on my dads 61 econoline ..he had that dang thing 25 years!

    Pretty loose, if I remember correctly .030, like aluminum rods. The crank is turned down to sbc size. I think the crank grinder left a good radius on both sides...

    Yeh, MBog, I know. Ran one on the 1/4 mile dirt oval in the early '80s. Embarrassed a lot of V8s. Ended up in Kelowna, and I have lost track of it.
    A highly modified 300 ran in a '67 Mustang (named Thumper) in Modified Production - set several NHRA records - home track SIR (Saskatoon).
    Another /MP car, I believe at 1969 Summer Nats (Indy), a '66 4door Nova running a 300 Ford 6 won its class!
    They are a great engine - the best part being the 12 port head.

    It came stock with a 9". I narrowed another one with Moser axles, 4.11s and a good "new" Auburn posi. He wants to drive street as well as race it. I'll post a pic of the diff later...
