You got it, a Ford Transit. Not just a transit but a Transit Connect.
It's your floor.

boothboy Read up on Junior Johnson, Smokey Yunick and the guys that started NASCAR. The revenuers went to the same shops for "soup-ups" as the moonshiners did. Whether the mechanic put the same stuff in everyone's engines is debatable. Read Smokey's book. Fun reading.

wretched ratchet I do remember seeing an awful lot of carb throats on that '50 and I know mine did NOT have that many when I was in College I guess the "Shiners" not only cheated the Gooberment out of tax revenue (only reason to control it) but wasn't it cheating to have a souped up engine when ?they didn't have one? - - maybe the Goober Garage didn't know how.

496CHEVY3100 Possible the ford was faster because it was supercharged ,( read article above ) also the reason not many shine cars were wrecked they belonged to the REAL local shiners hired for the filming they had to keep their cars with little damage as possible

Yes indeed and another interesting thing that I observed for the first time. Seems like the "good guys" (hard working moonshiners) all drove Fords but the "bad guys' (Feds & Mob) drove Chevys and Buicks. Was that because the Fords were expendable, since they did wreck a few, or because they could outrun the Chevys and Buicks?

IMCDb.org: "Thunder Road, 1958": cars, bikes, trucks and other vehicles

Just an observation and in no way a statement of fact. Let the flaming begin
