Hello, My name is Gordon and I've been a rodder since 1962 when I helped my brother build a hemi powered 34 ford pkp. Then we shoehorned a 283 into a 54 healy aluminum bodied roadster.
In 1972 I built my first corveight, using a 66 2 door with the Saginaw trans.
The Crown kit does not flip the transaxle but runs power through a custom input shaft into the front of the trans and the bell housing is adapted using crowns adapter onto the front of the trans.
I still own the 2nd corveight I built in mid eighties. Same adapter setup. This car has a 350 4 bolt block with a large journal 327 crank, 600 lift roller cam with rev kit and stud girdles, old ported fuely heads, domed pistons and runs nicely up to 7800 rpm. My 2 sons and I have all autocrossed this car, always with great fun. There is something addictive about listening to a smallblock screaming at 8 grand 20 inches from your ears.
sorry for going on and on.
