1950 Ford Tudor, owned for over 38 years, Merc crank in V-8, O/D, T/S, duals.
1950 F-1, V-8, 3 on the floor, duals.
1949 Willys Wagon, 3/4 race 50 Merc (ported, relieved, 120 over, Offy finned head, Offy 4BBL with 390 CFM Holley, Isky 77B, headers, Mallory), Mustang II front end, Mustang rear, 5-bolts on all 4 corners.
Until some moron decided "stop signs" were not "mandatory", I restored, maintained and showed Flatheads.
Did complete engines all the time.
First two are 6v positive ground, third is 12V neg.
Stock, mild, hidden (internals only), and really fast ones.....did 'em all.
Nice! Right now my two toys are the 1950 Fordor (need room for the twins!) and a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer lifted 4" on 33" tires. The Ford has a nicely rebuilt flatty, so I'm trying my best to not mess with the motor for the moment. Right now the seats are out so I can cut the floor out of the rust and stop driving like Fred Flintstone! It's still 6v. I'd love to drop in a Merc crank and a race cam, but I'm really trying to keep my hands out of the motor . . . for now at least. I love the sound of the dual glasspacks as it is, but a nice lopey idle always sounds cool.
