Should be fun. haven't had a chance to drive it with the engine being rebuilt. it had low compression pistons in it and bearings were gone and i thought it went ok .So with flat tops and and fresh bottom end hope it goes alot better.

Brings back memories . My first was a 51 . I put a flat head in it with aluminum heads , aluminum three duece manifold and a " 3/4 race" cam in it.
