The latest victim

:twisted: Here is the latest victim for Dr Frankenslater's garage :twisted:

That 289 is a nice motor, but right at 1/2 the cid that is planned. If it passes mag, I have an A460 Block already bored to 4.5 just waiting to fall into that engine compartment.

I figure a 572 on pump gas should give with 750-800 hp N/A (1.3-1.4 hp/cid) with a streetable tune (600-750 rpm idle). Add 250-300hp of nitrous with a second C-16 fuel system and hold on.

My goal is to run the 5.8 index, change tires then drive home in A/C comfort. I really think that might upset some people

Cool

That's a nice start right there !!!! Now do you want to hear the story about the one I let get away because i didn't have 150 bucks? About 15 years ago. Keep the pics coming.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Garage
If you don't mind me asking....how much did you pay for that, and where did you get it? I see the Colorado plates on the car, is that where you are? Nice looking car. I've always got my eyes out for nice unmolested projects like that.

The car is a lot nicer than I thought. It has a near perfect interior and absolutely no rust that I can find. I came with a 65 console that has a floor shifter in it that will work perfect for a reverse pattern valve body.

My builder called me and told me the A460 block I found passed mag. With the forged SVO 4.5 stroke I bought last year the motor for this car will be 572.

I went in my little room of parts and found the 35 spline axles and spool I bought a few years ago are the perfect width for a 9" housing I have which just happens to fit this car.

Sorry about being a bit excited, but I have want to build one of these cars for a long time and have somewhat been actively buying parts and parts cars for around 9 years.

I gotta finish that damn yellow car.
