Definitely not as high-zoot as some of my compatriots here, but $500 54 Plymouth on $250 78 El Camino chassis . . .

Stan
Just out of curiosity, what is the difference between 48 Mercury pickup and 48 Ford pickup spindles? Inquiring minds want to know. Whatever it is, you got the better deal. grin grin

48 Mercury spindles are ferrin!  (I believe they're the same as 41-48 Ford car spindles.)

I traded them to my ex-partner for his 40 Ford knowing (hoping) they didn't fit (square, as opposed to round).  I had to get even for the $80,000 he screwed me out of.  Well, it made me feel a little bit better.

You're calling some of our Northern racing friends Ferriners huh huh grin
I knew Mercury trucks were Ferrin by being (made?) sold north of the border. I've got three 53-56 F100's. I thought the only difference was the Badge and the tail gate says Mercury.

Let's not get off track here.

I read where the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock ran into a bunch of natives a year or two later that spoke French.  Kinda ruined their story as being pioneers in the area.  Or maybe the natives had signed up for internet language lessons.  I'm not great on history, but I don't tweet, either.

That reminds me of a 54 Dodge 4 door that I had in High School I put 53 Mec headlight rings and frenched them and the taillights slammed it with full length lakes pipes pained 54 Wilys metallic green---my friends called it the Green S-it Shooter---flathead six instead of a hemi though---looked and looked for one I could afford back then--never did

"Stan- what's the hemi intake manifold?"

It's a Hot Heads that I ground off the injector(?) bosses(?) and had polished.  She want $175 to polish it, I said give me $100 worth.


"That's the most "cost effective" '54 Plymouth on this planet! I like the frenched headlights- do them yourself?"

No body work involved.  The trim pieces fit in the stock fender opening.  They're off International Travel-All grilles $1 each at Pick-A-Part.


By the way, the body's channeled 4" over the frame with road racing springs in the back and very slightly cut heavy duty coils in the front.

That's oozing with "high-zoot" Stan, unlike that checkbook $hit!

I was gonna say this may be off topic but then i couldn't remember what the topic was, so here goes. What I got goin in the shop. I just in the design stage of a 34 Ford 5 window street car. Chopped (a bunch) and lookin like a 50s B'Ville car. The choice of mill will be a stroker 354 HeMi. Here it comes.....has anybody had any experience with a front mount roots blower hangin off the front of the engine ie; no hood scoop (or rad, at least not in the front)  I'm concerned about how this setup might work on the street. I think it would look darn cool behind a track nose.

Cheers,  cheers
