It looks like a Holley... which wouldn't surprise me Mark...

A few wks. ago at a gig... I met a guy with a nice Mustang (71 or 72)... He pulled in with the headers open (electrically-controlled exhaust-dumps)... It was LOUD... I asked him if it was a 427... to which he replied; "No... it's a 351C... Ford didn't make a 427... that's a Chevy motor"... I said; "Yes... it is... but Ford also made a 427... as well as a 428 and 429..." He disagreed, and looked at me like I was an idiot... so I just walked away.

Every Friday night from early June to late September we go to North Saint Paul for their "History Cruze" car show. They close off 7th Avenue (Main) and only let in cars 1975 and earlier. I peddled 8-tracks for a short time there to make room for more in my basement. Didn't set a box of them out, just found all the guys who had a player in their car and said "you interested in some fixed 8-tracks?"  LOL




I know, horsesh*t pictures but its all I could find on my computer. A lot of other little towns around here have car shows once a week, I'll sometimes make it to Stillwater on Wednesdays. Anyone else live in or have a town nearby that holds a weekly car show?

you can probably bet he had someone build the car or bought it that way.

I don't know Fords very well, but i think Autolite made some carbs for Ford. When i was a kid, Chevys where cheep and hop-up parts as well.

Yes, Ford-"Autolite and Holley", GM-"Rochester" and Mopar-"Carter"... were carb, manufacturers most commonly used.

And yes... the Chevrolet sm. block V8 is still the cheapest engine to hop-up. A 4-bolt main bearing block is the best way to start... usually found in older trucks.

Chevrolet actually made a 302 V8 from 1967-69... if you can find a vintage one; 1968-69 in particular... it's very valuable. These engines were designed specifically by GM for the Z28 Camaro to meet SCCA rules.

If you're interested... read about the Chevy sm. block V8's here:

many years ago i owned a 64 impala 2dr htp 250hp 327, factory 4 sp. it had a carter 4bbl.
the 302 (i think) was a 327 with a 283 crank, the cam was solid lifter type to help keep valves from floating.

I used to have a Cheetah toy car as a kid. I have always liked that design. Very 60's cool.

What's the story behind the one on the trailer?

Damn... a directly coupled tranny/diff. and 375HP... (I'm guessing the 327 Corvette V8) Can you say "blow-shield"? Wouldn't want to launch a flywheel at 9k+ rpm. It'd take your legs off!affraid
