The 460 Stuff

What is the wildest thing that you ever shoe-horned a 460 into?

Put one in the hatch of a GTi
Rear springs were not happy with that idea.

Haven't done it yet, but there's plans for a mild 460/ built c6 to go into my '80 GMC 24 pass school bus/motor home......Tee hee hee. Other than that, I converted my Dragster from a SBC to a BBF.....Talk about having to use a shoe horn! lol

I had a '71 429 in the passenger seat of my '98 Ford Escort ZX2. Put it in there with a piece of plank and a crowbar. Figure that one out

OH YEAH!!!!!! They are my all time-almost-have-a-body-to-sit-in FAVORITE body style! I've dreamed about putting a blown BB with 18"wides with 1" of BS with just enough room for a driveline in one of those all my life. And, of course, it'd have to be a rag top! lol

A Nash would be cool, but it would probably be easier and cheaper just to find a go-cart. Would be about the same effect...eh?

How about one of those Econo-line pick-ups from the sixties with the top chopped off? It would be like a wheel-stander and you could stand up in it while the front was off the ground and look around at everyone. You would get extra points for wearing a sombrero and a chain of bullets wrapped around you. Double points if the passenger was a hot Girl! Just remember to wear pants.

Well that is what I did but the top is still on, drive shaft is 2 1/2" just enough to put the two yokes togather
