I wish I could have seen it run - I was preoccupied with the Midget, and didn't get a chance to peek under the hood, but I did see it in impound.

You know - I miss Plymouths . . .

And, it's a very good looking car. Especially sitting in impound!

I'm thinking the passengers foot well in a racing Midget is expendable and might allow room for a slant six.  grin

I saw it run a couple of times.

It just ran and ran.

Real nice car, real nice people.

Yeah, the slant sixes are known to be "tough", but where did he find all that power in an F-class 170? 132.85 MPH- I remember those sort of numbers in B and C Classis Production just a few years ago.

Not a pic but here is the engine information BobDcuda posted in the Aero Section - How much rake on a door slammer? thread:


Sid, I've got the 170 ci slant bored out to a whopping 174 ci.  Got the usual cam, carb, headers, valves, etc., and some extensive head work.  Combustion chambers were welded in to get 30cc chambers, milling and porting, 13:1 compression.  Engine dyno made 252 hp @ 6,800.  Final bit is to get the nose down and aligned.  I hope to go fast, but do want the wheels to stay on the ground.  grin

Extensive head work.  Yep, sounds like the magic is in the head.

He was running by me a few times over on the short course.  I'm not sure what upset me more, not getting a record, or that an old Cuda with a 6, went faster than my v-twin, push-rod, 650 turbo!  I always loved those early Cudas, just great styling, kind of an updated Studebaker look.
