Saw this at Dennis Carpenter's. Ambler OHC cam setup with dual mag drive for Y-block Ford.
Quarter Panels for my 1968 Galaxie Convertible!
Anyone know of where I might find some NOS or solid used ones? I don't want the crappy repair panels that are out there.
Harder to find is the retractable chalice holder. Gary
Headlight fluid, saw it for sale once, guy wanted 8 first borns and a few sets of an arm and a leg.
an 871 blower manifold for a MEL. 671's are hard enough to find.
If this ain't it, it's gotta be near the top of he list!
bought a 27 "T" turtle deck running driving 327 4=speed with kinmount discs for a grand in 72 didnt even know what the brakes were pulled them off & put on some 56 F 100s gave the kinmounts away oh well
Funny you mentioned this. I did find one one on eBay a few years back, and the guy was quite knowledgeable on it. It was made for the salt flat guys. Kind of wish I bought it, but it was too rare for me and better someone else got it.
I was looking for Hone overdrives and found one of Long 's quickchange overdrive/underdrive units that was made for the Doug Nash 5-speed. It fits between the the tail section and the 2-pc. main body of the trans, and has a service cover that allows access to a quick-change gear setup inside, so you can move your ratios up or down as you like. Supposedly also for the salt flat guys. Tried to contact people at Long (as in Shifters, now part of G-Force), even their oldest employees didn't remember this stuff, or acknowledge it. Can't find anything about it, but want to use it in my speed machine project, with a Hone overdrive on the 9" rearend. I've gotten a few of them now for the 9" and 8" and universal-style, so if anyone has question (besides if they are for sale), ask away.
I think a Hen Weighs about 2 1/2 or 3 pounds.
Backwards : Money, followed by time.
If you can get through to Leonard Long, that's probably who designed and built it.
LS7.........New in a crate.........can you say sweeeeeeetttttttttt!!!!!!!
Maybe my auburn panel, not the same as often seen.
Good outer healight bezels for a 1963 Dodge at as good price. Evey one seems to think that they all came off Ramchargers and are white gold plated
Yeah, if it's a 454 big block and not one of those new sewing machine engines...
I'd almost swear that was the same unit I was going to buy off eBay several years ago. Ended up going the Hone overdrive route instead, and put the quickchange gears in the trans (see above). Your assembled rear is otherwise identical to mine: Winters housing, Moser thru-bolt aluminum third member, and the Hone planted on the end. Low unsprung weight. Very nice.
A Weiand Dragstar intake for a 392.
for me it would be an s.co.t intake for early olds rocket...
aswell as running it on an 288cui kettering v8,
the first olds rocket v8 prototype.. saw one on ebay some years ago
cant be many of them made... and only 4 known to still exist..
wish i had bought it, think it went for an obtainable amount, 5-8000 grand or something..
instead of oldsmobile rocket, the 1949 style valve covers had this text on them..
in other words almost looks like an 303 1949 oldsmobile engine but aint
but almost... and still is an oldsmobile engine...
reactionless propulsion engine. <--- this shit is straight up banned by numerous sanctioning bodies.
I'm guessing this gauge panel is from a 32 Studebaker COE or big truck. It has a air pressure gauge, and a 4k tach. I added the oil temp gauge, the gauge was missing but had the glass same as the other side. Also the speedometer odometer is 6 digit for up to 999,999 miles. Has anyone ever seen one of these ? I'm sure it would be a hard to find item.The 2 duplex intermediate gauges are 2 5/8. The 2 small temp gauges are 20's-30's wood boat style.
Well, for me , it would include finding a pair of just useable seat frames for a 53-6 Ford Panel Delivery. Remember , for every ten G M C's and Chevrolets , one Ford panel got built during this time frame . scrubba
Im not entirely sure but i recently saw an entirely vintage super charger for a flathead on a 36 3 window a few weeks ago. it was pretty badass and ive never ever seen or heard of one.
Would it be wrong if I told you I had one Beep?
Like this one in Bruce Singers '55 GMC?
iv always liked the lighting sticks from hurst.. id say the 4 handle model..witch seems to have only been made for a picture shoot. heh.
what kind of intake is that? i have one always thought itwas home made.. maybe not.. hmm.
o yeah bad ass engine man. lucky customer or if its yours....
It's an Offy cross ram. Edelbrock and Weiand both made them for BBC also. Normally we wouldn't use a BBC as they weren't made until '66, but the customer had it for years, and wanted to use it. It's also got a Cerillo Mag by Len Hughes w/Tach Drive. It HAULS ASS.
My finned Oldsmobile finned Edelbrock "57" valve covers with the 57 cast in below the Edelbrock both cast on top and my filcoolater beehive oil filter. Cool items.
