    For anyone considering using the small French v8 ,Know that the "Aqualon" engine is a different block than the v8 60 ! A favourite with the speedway guys ,as the heads and intake from the "60" , do fit . The French block has a centre exhaust baffle cast in ,as in the big Rouge 337 lincoln , a half scallop reliefin the transfer area intake valve ,way different sump ,bellhousing and water pump . Stuff like that .

    I'm going to refer to that as modification as "rounding over" the hood. :)

    I have found this Ford Vedette a few years ago and bought it for little money! 007.JPG

  27. Vedette, you continue to make very challenging work seem effortless! Your design tastes fall right into the traditional, but are also unique - a very difficult style to achieve - well done!

    Nali, a few folks have asked how the spray chrome held up over time. The answer came in French and I wonder if you could pass along the answer in English for us? Thanks!

    I don't know how I missed this thread for so long - but.. Merci et bon!

    Dave
