Some guy in Texas did it!!!!!!
Check it out. This is NUTS!:cool2: :cool2:
High tech, indeed...I was expecting something like a huge in-line flathead (anybody else miss those cool Offy heads?).
Great av, Sal!:cool2:
I don't care about the engine but sometimes I think I could use one of those Sherman guns under the hood!
here i thought i did somthing by stuffin a 351W in a 79 mazda rx7, actuly on a mazda the valve covers on up stuck out above the hood. (crummy brakes):cool2:
That's pretty cool. If nothing else just to be able to say he's got a tank engine in his car. Not the best idea though. There's much lighter engines that make more power uping the power to weight ratio dramatically. Also with all that weight up front, hooking up would have to be next to impossible.
final engine weight was 960- he says not much more than an old hemi....
I dont know, but it is cool!
We put a 500 cubic inch Cadillac engine in a '65 or '66 Mustang back in the late 80s.
I had a 351 Windsor in my 1973 Ford Galaxie! Man I loved that car.
Not an engine swap, but when I was a teenager in OKC, I knew a guy that somehow hung a horn from a Santa Fe freight engine under a Nash Metro.
He had some sort of surplus aircraft compressor under the hood, to blow the horn.
I envy the mind that can even conceive of such foolishness!:lol:
Sal, thanks for sharing, that's one B.A. ride. I'm not a Ford fan, but I respect someone for being able to make all that work right. I've seen a Chevy Chevette with a 500 Caddy big block engine and my Dad once owned a Ford Pinto that had a 302 small block w/ 4 speed tranny out of a late model Mustang. It also had a Ford 9 inch rearend w/ a locker in it. Now that was one scary ride! He didn't keep it very long. LOL!
