    Nice. It looks like Ford had an excellent reason to relocate the spark plugs on the SOHC. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to change plugs here with them in the lower location?

    That thing looks nasty with the hood off. Looks to be the low performance version with the single 4 barrel.:rolleyes:

    They probably just moved the engine across the shop floor from the "NASCAR" dept [after being banned] to the "NHRA" dept [​IMG]


    Does anybody recognise the driver unloading it? Would it be a young Gas Ronda by any chance??? [he would've been 38 in 1964]

  21. 1967...home on 30 day leave with my street racer 55 Olds bought from the folks. Before I went back I'd used the Olds as a trade-in to buy my 57 Pontiac 2 door with factory stick. 55olds.jpg

    I posted this earlier on another thread!
    47469723_1928066027276700_985246453817409536_n.jpg

    But I found this 2nd photo that belongs with it. [The owner/builder is Bill Perriton from Hamilton NZ]

    Bill Fuller's Chevy powered D Type Jaguar at Green Valley Raceway in 1963.

    A car like that would be worth $4 to $6 million on todays market [if restored]
    $20 mil for the 1955 LeMans winner
