Back To The Top.
I'm about to swap a small block chevy for my six banger. It kind of feels dirty to put the small block in a car since it's so over done, but if it was only a little newer it would have had one.
Might just be a flathead next. I'm planning the next car right now.
When I got my engine running 1 1/2 years ago, it only hit on 4 cylinders. And it's still sitting in that condition in the donor car. I haven't really done anything else but pile up parts for the rest of the frame and body. So i can't really say it's IN my hot rod. But i went ahead and voted anyway to artificially drive up those Ford 385 series numbers.
P.S. it would have been nice if they were in alphabetical order, but it was a good idea for an interesting poll anyway.
small block for me
a 383 chevy, 355 chevy, 301 chevy, 302 ford,352 ford, 239 ford,and got a floor full of 429 and 460 fords lookin for bodies...

Why have 5 threads asking the same damn question?,,talk about beating a dead horse! HRP
Because i did a more in depth poll on this one but screwed up the last three.
Where's the Big Block GMC V6?!?!?!
401 is going in my Willys Overland (unless I find a 478!)
AMC V8 & flathead Mopar 6
(+AMC/Jeep 4.0L's in the daily drivers)
472 caddy in my caddy
I voted HEMI (DeSoto); S26 341cui Fireflite in the '32 pickup
C'mon Guys, my first poll had 600+ votes and i've added some more choices too this one!
But since you had sevral and many get tired of the same thing.
The idea was great(even i know and everybody else that Gm 350 is gonna win) but you should have figur out the wrongs and changed in the first post insted...
Yeah, if could've deleted the one's i screwed up on i would've. But guys kept posting pictures and stuff on the one thread. And i can see a few choices i definitely would leave out like the Studebaker and International 8v and put in stuff like the Packard v8 and Chrysler flathead 6 because a few more guys seem too have those.
