    May have been posted before but I have never seen this one.

    Earl Britt owned Earl's Pizza Palace in Sioux Falls, and he campaigned this 54 Corvette race car named Pizza Man. Through several successful years of racing it earned the title Worlds Fastest 6 Cylinder Corvette.

    Yes. You should also check out the website www.fordsix.com. It has a wealth of information from several users.
    BTW My son has a 240 in his '48 Anglia and is looking for a six-powered pickup for my granddaughter.

    Well, not totally cool. Like an idiot I sold Bruce's tri-power intake which was set up for either IR Weber downdrafts or three Holleys with a plenum box. This was when I switched over to a crossflow head and was building my own intakes. To make matters worse the guy who bought the setup just needed the three 650 2-barrels for his big block Mopar V8 but I said I did not want to separate and he had to take the intake too, which may have landed in the trash.

    Great! Thanks in advance for your time. I've surfed and surfed but need help with final selection of carb and distributor. The 240 long block is bone stock with a factory c4. We pulled it out, cleaned, painted, new oil pump, timing gears, bolted up an Offy C and EFI exhaust and got it back in the truck. From all I've read I feel the MC 2100 / 1.08 w adaptor would be best but most posts are on the 300. Should I go with a smaller Venturi? Also what jet sizes? Also plan to run an hei distributor, but don't know what brand is good with keeping cost in mind(Davis unified is pricey)Other worries are clocking and mounting of the carb, what kits/parts to buy for throttle cable and trans lockdown. Don't think it would matter but fuel tank in the cab has been replaced with camper special tank inside the frame rails using wrangler filler bezel and truck now has a brake booster for disc brake swap from a 78 and plan on running AC. Sorry for the long text. Thanks again for your help.

    Briefly, Our Anglia / 240 has similar manifolds, RV cam, 390 Holley, 2500 stall speed C4, and it works well. Use a 1.08 - or smaller - should be fine oriented as in a V8 and with stock jetting to start. A factory DS II is all you'll need or for a cheap alternative use a GM HEI as described in www.gofastforless.com. Son's Anglia runs hi 14's in the quarter. It is getting upgraded to a 305 Ford six as soon as I can put it together with all the existing bolt-on parts and the 240 is going in another '49 Anglia I picked up. (The 305 should do mid-13's.)

    Good luck with your project.

    I am not sure if some of these have already been posted, these are some that I have scoured from the internet for use of inspiration for my digger.

    As soon as I got a race car, I never saw another hundred dollar bill.

    Tom Langdon was a GM employee and Gasser racer from Utica, MI. Landgon’s “Holeshot-6″ ’48 Anglia H/Gasser used an Chevy inline 6 for power and sometimes giant wheelstands!

    Jerry Haley’s ’33 Plymouth classic was powered by a much modified, inline 6 cylinder GMC engine. The powerful GMC truck engine had a unique cross-flow ported cylinder head, built by Rockford, Illinois’ Sterling Racing Engines.
