303 Olds.327 Chevy Had em, liked em.
It kills me to say this, but given the fact that I've been "Blue Oval" for 5+ decades, I'd have to say the prettiest V8 (all decked out) would be a nailhead. I've never built one, they never had an automatic worth a D___ behind them, but there're still the prettiest. I'm working on a fat fender 48 DeSoto with a 440/727 now, so what the H___ do I know?
Early Holden. I'd love a Repco Hemi head for one. Gotta be time for a re-pop!
327 chevy or 283 chevy..either or
Flatties and Desoto hemis....
ha ha ha
DITTO bubba67 nothing is more cool than an ARDUN. Even in the day they were the coolest
When I was about 15 I was given an old 55 cad motor with three Strombergs on an edelbrock manifold and passed on it. stupid kid thought it was a boat anchor. I was more interested in the 65 mustang that I had.So now that`s what I would want instead of my Flathead. Pete.
Nothing makes sweeter music than a Y-block.
anything as long as their inline 270 gmc
That's a tough one, but if I had to pick just one, it would be the ford 289 "k" engine. I can still remember the surprised looks on some big block drivers faces when my little '63 f100 left them behind at the starting line
I'm with Big Jake Yblock of anytype by Ford with a sweet set of Porter mufflers on it to set the tone.
Y-block then FEs are cool to me...
How about an injected Cammer???
Flathead then allison olds rocket
Flatheads 31, HEMI IN A GASSER, SBC IN A DRIVER
Max Wedge , Hemi , Cammer , and just for a little fun Rolls Royce Merlin!
I'm liking my Dodge Hemi Red Ram..Second would be a Ford Flathead V8..
I'd defiantly have to say the FE series is my favorite. Especially with some mechanical injection. But I also have a soft spot for the MEL's & nailheads, and would love a W head for my chevy.
The Merlin makes some sweet music
Nailhead, for sure.
308 inches in 6 cylinders of flathead goodness and twin carbs to boot.
Whats not to love?
A Ford 302 with a 351C ....crank..
A Chebby 283 with a 327 crank...
Ford 520 Stroker.....08- over 460 block 4.40 bore, 460 4.20 stroked Crank, 240/6 connecting rod, custom pistons...
I'm real keen on the 1957 ,371 Olds Rocket 88 Motor,I have one going in my 32 Ford Roadster,which I would like to have finished soon.
This is my Motor so far.
427 FORD "CAMMER" I wish I wish I bought my buddies 10 years when I had some money. Complete, original, and never taken apart, it even had the carburetor tags on it.
I like all the FE's had a 427 SOHC with the tall Hilborn's in a 41 Willys A/G looked like the first picture except it was painted black
Tri-power 389 Pontiac or a dual quad 409 Chevy.
In no particular order....
427 SOHC...or any FE for that matter
....hmmm....I am starting to notice a pattern here.....
Bubba, the blue Mustang is about 10 minutes from my house... Pretty cool ride.
I hope that the D-500 didn't have the original dual-quad hemi in it when you got it.
