Yeah, I know...the art of self-delusion, right? Ah well. I try.
Yep, Cammer. It was the first thought I had when I read the kit was coming out, although I'll admit that I danced around several non-Ford alternatives before I finally decided to stick with it. I'll put anything in anything and not feel the slightest bit ashamed. Alright, that sounded bad. Yes, I'm still talking about engines. lol. It came down to this one, a blown Pontiac SD421, a tri-carb Olds 455, and a DOHC Hemi. My semi-conscious "backstory" for the car just ended up calling for the big Ford. I'm betting that I build another one down the road with one of the others. It's very loosely based on the Riki Creiger '57.
I have several kit Cammers, but I wasn't completely happy with the rocker covers in any of them. I ended up smoothing out the pair from a Polar Lights funny car and replacing the fins. The block, front cover and pan are from the '33 Willys. Intake is, if I remember right, from a '69 Torino kit. Carbs from a T-Bolt, and the Toploader from the '66 Fairlane.
