Ah! My kind of a guy.

Welcome to HR.com. I'll be starting a hemi powered deuce 3 window in a couple weeks. Been collecting parts for about 10 years. It's nice to have another "hemi guy" around here. We are out numbered by all these SBC guys though (about 20 to 1), which I figure makes it about even.

Really nice 32's.

Centerline,

I don't know your plans on your Hemi Deuce. but if you move the front crossmember forward 2" and use BBC waterpump. you can use a flat firewall. I fit a blower, (2" belt) and clutch fan without any problems. both of my deuces have mechanical fans and flat firewalls.

I have to admit that if you can keep them from granading, a hemi is ok. They may have even won a few drag races in their day, but having worked for some people who race hemi super stock drag cars, I think i will keep my chevy...sorry. There is more to life than a elephant. but thats my opinion,Tim

Hemi VS. SBC.

If your an engine man like me, you would like the inside of an early Hemi. sbc can be built a lot cheaper, no doubt about it. The differance in foundry and machine work is obvious if you like that sort of thing

real hotrods have 3 pedals
I have a Dave Koorey body which has a built in 2" firewall recess so I won't have to move the front crossmember forward. I'll be using a '55 331 with a 3 deuce (2G's) setup with a Saginaw 4 speed and Ford 9". American Stamping rails, Speedway Motors crossmember kit, Pete & Jakes front suspension w/hairpins, Pete & Jakes rear suspension w/ladder bars and transverse '35 leaf spring. I've been collecting this stuff for almost 10 years so I have just about everything to complete the car with the exception of a couple minor things. Still thinking about front brakes though. Have a complete Speedway Motors disk setup but am thinking about either '39 Lincoln self energizing brakes or the F100 swap. Any thoughts??

Note from Ago buick brakes

Why not try big Buick brakes. I took 66 Buick close fin drums, post 61 have self adjusting and post 66 have 1 3/16" brake cyl. ( eaiser pedal) the later brakes 61 on don't adapt as easy. I had to weld in a 1/8 center plate on the backing plate and redrill to work. pre 61 just needs a 1/2" spacer and redrill holes (easier). take the Ford hubs and adapt to fit Buick drums. use 3/4" or 7/8" MC, don't need power booster with this setup. let me tell you It will stop well. my new Hemi deuce has Buicks on all 4 wheels. Buick Brakes are 12" X 2 1/4" shoes, bigger than Lincoln, or F100.

Buy the way my favorite nephew lives in Prescott, Has an all Black 47 Plymouth sedan, built up like a gasser (graphics on door) straight axle, Blown 331 Chyrsler HEMI with FI, 4 speed.
