    Here are two- the first is how I am running it now: reground cam, lightened flywheel, chrysler mechanical distributor, ported intake and block, header, weber two barrel, t5 mustang trans with s10 tailhousing etc...
    the second pic is with a knudsen triple intake ..I am adapting a trio of solex carbs from a volvo boat engine for it soon. However, I hope it doesnt hurt the mileage too bad- I recently have been getting in excess of 25mpg on the highway (chugging along in overdrive of course)!!!!!!

    Here's a couple of my favorites. One that my f-i-l did when he was a teenager working at Barris' shop and one that he did for a guy a number of years ago.
    I want to do one when I'm ready for low and slow and get rid of the H2O hot rods.

    I would definitely appreciate any advice he'd give me. I've learned a lot from him. There's a lot of knowledge in that shop!

    That's quite a good guide, and very nearly complete. He missed the difference in depth for all the '49 and '50 grille parts (looks dumb if you mix them). I was unaware of the all-plastic crests on early '50s.
