New to the scene with a 350 60 over.

Hey guys, my name is Forrest, 32 yrs old living in Ft Worth, Texas. I'm new to the hot rod car scene. My dad had a couple of old race cars sitting around and I've decided to take the motors and parts and build a street rod with an old chevy coupe.

So far I've got a 350 bored 60 over with 350 heads that were reworked. Block is from the 1970s. I've got several intakes to choose from... One being an Edelbrock with dual 660 carbs. Have a powerglide 2 speed transmission. None of this stuff has been ran in 20 years but The engine has been turned over through the years. In the process of breaking the engine down now.

Any advice, tips, ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have my dad helping me but he has been out of racing for 2 decades. I have a general knowledge of cars but not a great deal. Just wanting to learn all i can. I know everyone has opinions and I'd love to hear them all! Thanks!

I don't have the coupe yet but I'm looking for something in the 30s. 3 window. A cousin of mine has one that's a rat rod but I'm looking to build something a prettier. Right now I'm just looking to set up the motor. I have lots of performance parts and I'm trying to figure out what to use and what not to.

Thanks!
