I am thinking about pulling this one back out and finishing it up. Needs a lot of work and redoing the frame in some places. Have a choice of motors from  a hemi to a 283, which is the white one, with a blower and lots of garbage on it.......................

This will be the motor,,,I rebuilt the front end a little and narrowed it up, it was too wide for this car....also did a lot of cleanup onn the frame assembly.

You never cease to amaze me with what you can scratch build.Impressive.

 

On a side note.

What happened to the scratch built hub-less motorcycle you were building ??

For those that missed the beginning of this build 2 years ago,,,,the body and frame were done in less than 2 days so it is kinda rough,,,I am finishing it but it is not the best to start with, The rear end is a mdified Jag independent rear and leaf spring in the front with working steering. The engine is scratch hemi sort,of,,,,,,,,,,, :P

The motor has been botthering me since I put it together,,,,time to find some drawings and get it close to right..I am sure the hemi guys are rolling thier eyes :lol:

 

Time for major surgery......

 

DSCN4122_zpsdf63e007.jpg

 

A little cut and paste,,,,,,and taking hammering out a simple vavle cover it is strating to have the right design ques,,,,

 

DSCN4123_zpsda33d823.jpg

 

I am basing this on the 1956 engine,,,,,It is something one would have used in the 32 coupe...................... :P
