what build? 27T.

I am with the other guy's totally missed this build, just looked over all of it and very very interesting, like the engine set back into the firwall and the wing nuts on the valve cover, nice, keep up the great work, thanks for sharing with us.

The torque of a big inline 6 in a ride that probably doesn't even weigh 2000 lbs, it is going to be fun.

If somewhere down the road you get an itch for even more, in-line 6's have a very strong 7 main bearing bottom end compared to 5 for a V8, and because it is an in-line design, plumbing for a turbo and inter-cooler is easy and straight forward. If you go that route in the future, my tongue will be totally hanging out. That engine could do 500+ hp and 550+ lb/ft easy with an inter-cooled turbo. I'm thinking direct from the bone yard (2) of the turbo that was used on the 2.3 L Ford 4 banger, with inter-cooler and wastegate. Probably pretty cheap hp that way and Ford engineers already designed what you need to feed 1/2 your CID, so just plumb 1 per 3 cylinders.

The 216 only has four main's, the seven main didn't come for Chevy until 1962 The big Jimmys like the 302 had seven mains though.

windshield material

There was info on the Tbucketeers site for windshield material, I think it was extruded aluminum, The company that makes the brass channel will only sell large quantities

Just joined the forum and starting look over this build, I can only hope that mine turns out half as good as this one did.

I'm relatively new to this site and found this thread. Great work on that car! It's nice to see some other guys on here from Jersey. I grew up not too far from you but I'm down south now. I can't wait to get started on my project now.

cars today.

Saw a few nice cars today, buddy wants to sell his 428 69 Fairlane so took a few pic's and spotted this 41 Hupmobile at the car wash, out of storage first time in 15 years, ran like a top.






Owners want $6,000 for 41 Hup and $20,000 for the Fairlane.
