very, very nice work man that car looks good, how big are the tires? I have a 68 coupe that I'm going to do the same way, I'm thinking 10.5x29.5x15's on it with the wheel openings the same way, thanks for the pics and keep them coming

Thanks..I'll post more pics of the progress after I get off work later...these cars suck for tires...that tire you see on the driver side is actually too big I was experimenting. It's a 29.5x11.5W hoosier..too tall...with just rolling the lips and keeping the existing opening shape your gonna be hard pressed to get anything larger than a true 30 inches. Which suck cuz I can get a 13.5 inch tire under now but it's a snug 30.2 inches tall...and the next size down is a 29x12 hoosier...at 29.3 inches and a true 12 inches wide. If your not afraid to get a little more creative and don't mind a little butchering you could get a little over 30 I believe but it's the tire expansion you gotta worry about.. I have 29x12 hoosier under the car it looks good tucked you'll see in tonight's pics.

So while all this fabrication and building is going on im thinking...how can i make this car kick even more ***. I need a good engine...something reliable...a good bracket engine...decently low maintenance. I mean i am practical...i realize that as horsepower increases so does maintenance and reliability can go out the window. So i set a goal...i wanted something in the 800 horsepower range...something that wasnt gonna cost 30 grand to build...something from Kentucky? I heard about these guys and how they could make make BBFs flat out fly. So i got in touch with Lem...told him my goals for the build...and went through every aspect of the build process. I liked his plan very methodical didnt have me spending money on things i didnt need and have me over building for my goals which i appreciated greatly. My part was easy i just kept sending checks lol.... after it was all said and done this is what Lem and Philip Oakley put together for me. A P-51 headed 557ci firebreathing dragon I was a little disappointed... i told Lem i needed 800 horsepower for my money...No No...these guys instead have the balls and the odacity to not listen to one word i said and made me 900 horsepower!!!!! Cant thank these guys enough....

By this point i got the engine in and just starting some of the fuel system plumbing and trying to workout a radiator and fan combination. Finally ended up going with a 79 mustang aluminum rad and flexalite dual pusher fans...looks fantastic as youll see in later pics.

Wow!


Sweet numbers on the motor, and at a nice 6500 rpm!

You build some really nice cars.

Here is the wiring harness in the car...I went to Racewire Solutions ..Brian Black...awesome system...everything is fused and relayed...Plug and play...He gives you a system cd which contains specific diagrams for your system. Every system is different...very slick setup...Never in a million years could i have thought i could wire this car myself but i did....The car is also equipped with The Grid MSD ignition...awesome setup
