Great start.....lookin good!

whats that under the door??

Oh thats part of the frame that I need to trim up :D . I just wanted to post a quick mock-up before I get into all the details, I'll take care of it when I'm putting the frame together. Or I could even channel the body over it ? mmmmmmmm.......let me see what I can come up with :)

Hey Billy....what motor you planning? You might have a clearance issue with the grill...

Hey Mike, I'm thinkin' about going with the classic flathead. I do have a new 2008 Mustang GT500KR engine laying around, but I'll have to find a super charger for it or a new intake mmmmmmm....... Ideas are just swimming around in my head ( I like it :) )

nice start on your little "mod-rod" there, billy. looks like it will be a lot of fun building.

if room is tight for a motor, think about the little 4.5 liter Ford V6 from the ASA Thunderbird. there is a little powerhouse.

Hey Dale, I'll have to see how much room I'll really have in their for an engine. That engine is a defiantly a possibility if I ain't got much room. Thanks man :)

I like this idea....it would let you mount the grill anywhere!

When I built mine...I stuffed a 421 in it and ended up stretching the frame a tad...

Yeah I might have to stretch the frame a little cause my rear-end is a lot closer forward than it was originally, so I will probably have to shorten the drive shaft. Also, the trannys on both of the engines that I'm thinkin' about using, are longer than the stock engine's. I'll also most likely have to make some engine mounts, and headers, and console a for the interior, and a list to put this stuff on so I'll remember it all B):D

I went thru the same thing and I think thats why this build was so much fun it was always something else!!

The best use for the whole SSR right there...the wheels for another kit!! It is looking great, and even with the section of frame under the cab, it still looks good. If you have the GT500KR engine (minus blower) laying around, why not use it with a custom 'Weber-look' modern fuel injection set-up? The GT500 engines 'C' heads feed almost straight-up anyway......perfect excuse for the 'Webers'.

Ok so I found the engine from the Mustang and I got the flathead put together partially just to see how it would look. I channeled the body over the frame a little and trimmed it up.

Heres the engines (I'm leaning towards the Mustang one B) )

I like that...lift the alternator up ...slide it back a bit, fab up a wild intake up top.........cool.gifcool.gifcool.gif

Thanks Mike, I still need to fab some engine mounts for it and lift it up some, but she's gettin' there :lol: I kind of want a two or three carb set-up like on the flat head, but I dunno yet.
