Well you might not want to see this but I'm building a '63 Catalina street gasser.
The single turbo was the original plan but I traded it and some cash for the turbonetics twin 76MMs. The engine is getting built, 1960 389 punched to 406 and running all forged internals. Still deciding on a trans, auto or manual. Mark L

Here is the Turbo IAII 57 Ponti that I am working on.

And this is the 52....that is a low priority in my garage. But will be good to have it on the road eventually. Been off the road since 1979.
Cool bunch o tin indians kids. Love the 48 ragtop, the 57 Safari with matching trailor, naughty street gasser, are some faves but crazy for em all. Cool thread gang. ~sololobo~
i am working on 57 pontiac 2 dr ht 428 4 speed 4.88 the plan is to have done to take up to byron for the melt down drags
Picked up a few bits and pieces for this the past summer. One of these days I should actually put it back together.
Vasoline or Crisco also works great on carbs, transmissions, etc., anything with paper/fiber gaskets.
As much as I love 4 & 5 speeds, automatic transmissions seem to keep a constant load on engines with turbo(s) and maximize the fun factor.
