Glen writes…  “I bought this car when I was 18 in 1968 for $50. No engine or transmission. I had a 56 210 with an over bored 283 to 4 inch with a Moon Eliminator FT-6 cam; they called it a 3/4 race cam. Camelback 194 heads, 3 two barrel carbs on an aluminum manifold. Weber pressure plate and clutch, 11 in. steel flywheel. A cast iron T-10 4 speed transmission an 4-11 posi rear end. Yes it was fast, no small block ever beat it! It now has a new version of the same engine with a forged steel crankshaft fueiie 202 heads an old Offenhauser 360 high rise with a 650 Holley double pumper, a Mallory electronic distributor, A M21 Muncie 4speed and 3:70 posi rear end. The new engine pulls just as strong as the first one. The paint is a Metallic Gold in the front and Metallic Ginger Ale on the back. It’s still a quick ride”.

We will round out the group this time with a beauty from Skip Tubbs.

Have a look.
