    This was posted over in the ACD forum. The guy took a 1932 Marmon V16 and put modern FI on it. This engine was all aluminum and extremely advanced for its day. In fact, a Marmon V16 was faster to 90 mph then a Duesenberg but did not match the former's top end. Very nice workmanship.

    I sure hope he pays as much attention to what he puts that engine IN as he did on the engine. It's be a shame to see such a beautiful piece of machinery in a cobbled together setup that it's sitting in now. I just get protective of stuff like this and want to see it reach it's full glory.

    Wow, is that a 1932 marmon air cleaner? LOL. It ruins the look of the engine. He might as well use a Dodge viper motor.
     

  5. Whoa, that's amazing... hope he ditches the plug wires and air cleaner.

    Hey Bobby! You missed some big fun last weekend!

    I stand corrected - didn't see the rest of it. My apologies to the Spirit in the Sky.

    I agree with losing the plug wires and air cleaner. I like the dash though. Instead of FI, I think a row of winfields might have looked nice sitting there too.

    Bill O'Rourke at the Roadster shop was working on a '33 or '34 Ford roadster with a Marmon 16 just before he died. Not sure what happened to the car.

    The second vid had a shot of a primered body that looked alot like a 33 or 34 ford roadster. Maybe this is what happened to that car?

    Impressive to say the least. Seems like a shame to put a hood on something like that though.

  20. Spare me the sanctimonious crap about it being built as a street rod.........its a street rod, hot rod, damn fine piece of work, someone has built a neat car, maybe not what you would do........but, I couldn't do better and I doubt a lot of others couldn't also...........spare me.....Andy Douglas

  23. Beautiful car, and plenty HAMB friendly from the outside anyway....:D
     
  24. It's gorgeous! It's nice to see something without red wheels and in partial primer for a change. The beast is a work of art!

    If that car had a SBC in it, I would not stop to look,but with that engine I would be there for at least an hour,taking pictures. I wonder if he knows he can't buy spare parts at NAPA?
