I don't have a scanner, sorry.
Fellow took a 47, 2-N Ford, installed the flathead V8 from an old dragster, wheely bars, and a sprung straight axle with Halibrand mag wheels. This thing must be seen to be believed. Oh, I forgot to mention the Sherman overdrive tranny.

Can you imagine driving a 2-N Ford at forty-four MPH? That's top speed at five thousand RPM. That's about three thousand more than I'm willing to drive it! :lol:

I'm stopping by the gas station tomorrow for some fuel...I'll make sure to pick up a HotRod. What I can't believe is last summer I watched a pretty fresh, totally complete flathead ford engine sell for 40 bucks, complete as in top mounted generator, fan blade and belt, carb, all electrics. A young man, early 20's bought it and after the auction was over, he was just staring at it on the stand. I asked him what he was gonna do with it and he said, and I quote: "I don't even know why I bought it". It never even occurred to me to buy it myself or even to offer him his money back !!!! What a dummy I was. :cry: :cry: Wasn't until a couple months later until I did a Bart Simpson.....DUH !! I'm STILL kicking myself...

This thing is a late, 49 or so, bored 0.125 with a 4in Merc crank. If I remember that's 277CID. Needs wheeley bars!
Make sure it's the June issue.

Why go with an 8 when you can go with a 12?
Where was this v12 at? i remeber seeing one on in Ashtabula Ohio several years back,but this one doesn't look like it a whole lot unless some things were changed threw the years
