I know you guys are mostly hardcore on here, but you've helped me get my 56 Panel truck going. Not built to race...but wanted to have some fun..Today I got the truck out of the garage for the first time in over 9 yrs. Some of you have seen the break in video...Today was even happier! Might put a gear and video a few 1/4 mile runs before I put interior in...it will never be this light again.
thanks guys!

Was back in 1978...

That is good to hear!! Post the link will you please? My internet is so slow (no broad band where I live) that searching for things is almost impossible. It takes forever!! I'd like to check out the updated video's and/or pictures. That is a really cool and unique machine that you have.

Well not blindingly quick, but at a roll it has gobs of torque....I've had it up to 90 mph and it's only turning about 3000 rpms....I want to use it for road trips a couple times a year so I may set up another third member with some 3.25 gears and just change it out for the 1 or 2 long cruises I want to do each year....love this 460!

Btw, engine is running great...about 1200 miles since break-in. Need about a 3.23 gear, but love the 2.75s on highway only about 3k at 90mph :eek:
