For years now, I've had a desire to build a GMC 302 inline 6 and mate it up to a '60 or '61 Falcon with a 4-spd/5-spd. through a 9 inch with 4.56 gears. Just seems to me that it would be more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
When I was a kid, I saw one in a '40 Chevy coupe with a 6-71 huffer mounting five Strombergs on a log intake. I was 14 at the time (1956) and the sight was so overwhelming that I can still see it in my mind's eye like it was yesterday.
