Squeezed the LT1 into the Tudor

Just a few progress pics to point out some of the spacing issues we had.
Lt1 with 4L60e in pinched 32 rails. Even with the Hooker Block Huggers we ended up with 3/4" spacing on each side.

Wheelbase set at 107"...even with that we needed 2" setback on the firewall.

Cardboard mock-up for fab planning (in progress)

That should to be a nice A bone when you're through, looks like you still have plenty of room up front. You ought to try a 507" Cadillac in a '32 chassis....never work in a pinched application though, I will have to have hood blisters on mine to clear the headers....
