Engine swaps, AMT, Monogram, kit to kit, Not Amt to Monogram


Recommended Posts

Their engineered motor mounts and chassis mounts are all the same. A little work on some body parts might be necessary here and there, i'e' putting that HEMI from their '32 roadster kit into their '40 Fords.

Another question, what are all of the engines available in these kits ?

Stock four banger in the '30 coupe and phaeton.

Early Cadilac V8 in the '28 pick up.

Pontiac V8 in the one of the '32 roadsters.

SBC three twos in the Tee bucket.

SBC six twos in the woody 

What have i missed?

Sorry this is all spread out. I tried to post in the "General" section but i kept getting an "404" ERROR

If you haven't followed this thread:

 

If your message had the words s e l e c t and f r o m (without the spaces of course) within the text, that would give you the 404 error.  It is a bug (feature?) in the forum software. Or maybe you accidentally discovered another combination of different words which triggers the dreaded 404 error.

Concerning the Monogram kits....

Flathead in the 40 Pickup and Multi carb Pontiac in the 36 Ford (great for backdating the butchered 32 Ford roadster kit) 

The 34 Ford had a Pontiac as well, but morphed into a neither fish-nor-fowl quasi SBC when it became the ZZ Top Eliminator 33 Ford

Some of the Tom Daniels kits provide additional options. The Bad Medicine kit, for example, has a really nice vintage SBC Weiand blower intake, GMC supercharger and drive parts that fit the SBC engines you mentioned. The Son Of Ford  came with a nice set of Algon injectors for the Pontiac engine. The poorly proportioned 57 Chevy kit from the 70's has Rochester FI that fits the SBC's too

Still the pickings are slim compared to the early AMT line up.

Three twos, chrome intake and heads on a flat head,

Three twos or six twos on a Chevy small block with some of the nicest finned aluminum valve covers

And a great Pontiac with Six twos or injection'

AMT has the numbers but these are much better detailed
