V-8 Red Baron

I`m a big Tom Daniels fan and have always loved the Red Baron, but being one of those people that can never leave well enough alone I decided to make a V-8 Baron. Dont really know for sure what the motor is because everything came from the parts box then built a set of heads to fit the valve covers and topped it off with a homebuilt intake scoop. All I know is that its big and loud and hope T.D. would approve.

Had to do a fair bit of cutting to get the big block in there. Stretched the frame 7mm then gave it a bit of a rake for a more aggressive stance. Lowered the front 3mm by lengthening the height of the uprights on the front axle, reshaped the firewall, interior floorboard, and bottom of the body to make room for the Transmission. Engine plate up front and a new tranny mount out back then added a huge set of Mickey Thompsons out back that came off of a Slammers snap together Caprice.
