    Here's a late model that I liked real well. Probably not what anyone wants to see and it may not count as a hot rod. LOL

    Is this engine photoshopped? Rear distributor ford with sbc exhaust pattern????
     
  16. Most likely it is a SBC with Ford covers. Seen some with Olds Rocket and Lincoln covers also. JW

    Here's an earlier explanation about the optional engine used in my 1936 Ford Super Deluxe pickup:;)

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...g-lars-australian-ford-for-my-pickup.1035596/

    That's the story behind the extremely rare Australian Ford engine in my 1936 Super Deluxe Pickup. It is quite appropriate, I think, because it is an extremely rare pickup.

    I'll also point out that the Super Deluxe Pickup of that year also has the same stainless waterfall that does NOT have a hole for a crank out windshield that also came in the cabriolets, convertible sedans, and woodies.;):D

    I'm also pleased to report that I did find my Australian Street Rod Federation patch that was graciously given to me some years back by Steve Wilson along with some treasured magazines from "down under." I love those guys.

    The Australians I had the pleasure of meeting at the LARS in 2016 were good mates and some of our LARS 2016 Roadster Express gang got to spend a fair amount of time with them and greatly enjoyed their company. Here's a picture of both gangs coming together for dinner at the LARS in 2016:

    Absolutely Perfect in every way... It's Marry Poppins, in truck form.

    If you look at the rocker cover flange you will notice adapters between the head rail and the rocker cover. Someone probably got tired of hearing belly button and decided to change it. :oops:

    Uh forgot the pic. DuhOh!!
