My latest wallpaper picture. Helps me forget about the 2 ft of snow outside in the yard(although it is melting fast). Hopefully spring is right around the corner.
Man Baron every time I see this car I love it more
What size wheels and tires are you running? The photobucket pics are very cool!

My 40 Stude mild gasser. 383ci in 671 Blown sbc.
Where can I see more pictures?
Here's my present build. Just drove it Monday for the first time since purchasing the stock '63 Falcon in March. Whirlwind build, and lots of little things to still do, but at least it's driveable now!
1963 Falcon Futura with 464 BBC, Edelbrock heads, Super T10 four speed, 8.8" Ford rear, ET mags, 10" Hurst slicks.
Enjoy what Gasser's are all about!

Nothing like that first ride. Looks tuff. Nice job. Love these early Falcons done up this way.
Thanks Baron! It's back in the canopy for a few winter project upgrades!
i'll through my truck in the mix
still a long way off but getting there.
it's a 1940 dodge with a 270 and a A-833 4 speed OD
i am currently working on getting the 4-71 supercharger installed
it will be v belt driven.
Thanks! Brought back some good memories of my childhood. Quain put it in just the right perspective. The Gassers and Fuel Altereds were my favorite cars back then, in part becuse of the wheelstands and "all over the track" handling. Always a great show.
Exactly! I grew up in the 50's and as a young teen in the 60's it was exciting to see those cars make runs. The fact they didn't go perfectly straight, and tended to stand up on the rear bumper just made them more appealing!
Looking through this thread, I realized that I never posted a picture of my gasser-inspired '56 Plymouth after it was "finished". 440/TF727, six-point cage, homebuilt fenderwell headers, tube bumpers, radiused wheelwells with 10" US slots on the back, ET five-spokes on the front. I drove it the 700 miles to Joplin for the HAMB Drags, had a freakin' blast! The car is now in the Netherlands.
More gasser video enjoyment!
My all Glass Henry J, Serial number 1
Now being converted into my AA/GS Drag car.
Work in progress. Gonna take some time.
Now that is a very cool looking ride, well done!
My 35 panel Im building
I've had my Gasser style '63 Catalina on here in its build stages. Well I'm still building it. This is the last and final engine configuration. With the finished but not started engine all in place. I'm a turbocharger nut so I had to incorporate that into this build so it is not even close to traditional. But much of the chassis and body mods are older style Gasser like. 1960 389 punched .090 to 406. KRE D-Port aluminum 320 cfm heads. Solid roller turbo cam. Ross dished pistons on GRP aluminium rods, forged Ohio 3.75 crank. Wenzler Gutsram Tunnel Ram with twin blow thru E85 750s, twin 76MM Turbonetics ball bearing tuebos blowing thru twin intercoolers.
Ford GM spec (Dearborn) top loader 3 speed, ladder bar rear suspension, Ford 9 inch detriot locker 35 spine axle 3:50 geared rear end. '57 Chevy pickup front beam axle on custom front frame clip.
Engine moved back 11 inches and firewall cut and reformed around that.
Towed it to a local cruise last October, full car pic.
This is my concept to fit my needs and wants. Nowhere traditional but with traditional flavor. Hope to start it up soon. Just needs wiring run, fuel system finalized, and coolant lines run from trunk mounted radiator to the front.
Very impressive Mark L!
