half in - half out

here's where mine sits. Half in and half out due to the negative curvature of the firewall.

If you want it flush, you'll probably have to move the radiator significantly forward.

It's kind of like the Ty-Rods Old Timers Reunion. That event used to be the place to be on the second Monday in September. If you didn't put your event application in the mail the same day you recieved it, you didn't make the cut.
Now, it's just like Macungie. Neither event sells out through pre-registration but they both had waiting lists before one individual took over the duties of the committee.

Both are little more than weekly cruise nights, now.
DESOTO sorry to hear about your tire,, im sure i havent been going to macungie as long as a lot of others,,but i enjoy the rods,,even tho i have a street rod and a prostreet car,,,always loved your kool paint sceme,,,hope to see your car some place again,, i look forward to macungie in august,,NSRA in june,,, no more good guys in the area,,,,

I havn't had it in traffic for long periods of time but for 15 or 20 minutes (or as long as it takes to get out of town) it runs fine.

I think this will be the "kit" i'm going to get It's a wider T bucket by NEHR Speedcraft

I think it will allow more room for the steering & pedals (I'm using an extended bell 331 hemi)

In 1963, my friend and I bought a all metal '23 Ford T-bucket truck roadster and installed a '59 389 CI Tri-power Pontiac engine in it. We ran it like that for about 2 years before we decided to sell the heavy Pontiac engine and replace it with a 283 CI Chevy engine with 2 - 4 barrel WCFB carbs. We had a B-W 4-speed in it but never used 1st gear. It took us a year to find a new repro windshield frame. It had the original '23 T doors and you had to step wide when you got out or suffer a severe burn by the hot exhaust collector.

Even with the little SBC, and the 8.00 x 14 Goodyear "cheater slicks", the bite was so good the driver could see daylight under the left tire when punching it at 60 MPH. That T-bucket truck was "King of the Street" at the midnight outlaw drags for five years. It was a death trap, no seat belts and no roll cage, and with the black primer paint, it would be considered a "rat rod" by todays standards.
