    Thanks guys. Picked up the custom kit recently with a HL coupon for the tires and engine. I have a stock version but want it lowered so will use the parts from custom kit. I'm going to use the custom engine in a hydro boat that will go behind the Olds. That engine should look great in that boat. Olds engines were real popular in boats where I grew up in 50's and 60's

    Going to do mine with the Olds engine out of the 50 custom instead of the hemi. Going to use the stock version for tow vehicle

    4-71 or 6v53 but they were rare in those trucks. I,ve also seen the 3208 Cats in them but most had either 350 small blocks or 366 0r 427 big blocks

    Aren't they basically the same from 63 up? I know the 292 has a taller deck. The trumpeter Nova and some of the early AMT chevelles had 194 for the Nova and 230 for the Chevelle.

    Another clear that I have not seen mentioned on this board is the water based polyurethanes. I used it a lot and always had good results. Dries hard and fast and can be sanded and polished if needed. Carver Tripp is what I used Thinned with windshield washer fluid.

    Never done the Penske kit but have built the other 3 and all are good kits. No problems with any of them

    The Chinese bought the car business from Ford a while back but I'm pretty sure the truck side is still Swedish owned.

    Sweet with that Detroit. My brother in law worked for ready mix operation in Ohio in the 80's and they had a bunch of those Fords with the 3208T Cats. They were rolling roadblocks!

    There was an old farmer that used to run a Hudson Jet at Dragway 42 in Ohio back in the early 70's. Had a twin H 308 with a T10 four speed and it flew. Think he ran H Gas
