    We just finished our '55 Handyman Wagon with a 348, 3 - 2's, and a five speed.
    Her maiden voyage was to the NATS East in York, PA.

    We use it as a daily driver. Gotta love those "W" motors.

    We are going to be posting some pictures in an album soon so check back.

    My machinist has three 348"s and three 409"s. He's building one stroker to go in his '55 pickup and then the rest will be for sale. Anyone need any parts, let me know.

    4 speed, Dual Quad, Positraction, .030 over 409 in an unfinished 53 Chev B/A 2d post. tube axle, gasser type. One of these days, I'll find some time to work on it again.
    Through the years, I've had 8 '09 powered cars, and maybe 4-5 348 powered. Even a '55 sedan with a Z-eleven.

Now has a dual quad 350 but I have 2 409's one is a dual quad engine ready to go and the other is a 340hp from a 64 chev. My son will put the 409 in as soon as he does the body work some day, the other is slated for a street rod project some day.

    The stroked 348 to 440 in my avatar is going in my 32 3W, I have another tripower 348 going into my 32 5W. They are both fiberglass cars, maybe some day I can afford a Henry one.
