It's not going to be "racecar", as I'm not sure the cage will certify.
Just going to be a "street" play toy... to start with... Twisted Evil

DAMN, the blower is bigger than the engine! You know that car is going to need a cool name, race car or not.  Cool

Actually no, it's not..
That one is a fuel injected 5.0 Dad built for his other project, the 64 Ranchero, it's never been fired.
Freelander's engine is sitting just out of camera rage to the right of both of mine..

Not much progress to report.. Been doing the bodywork on the '64 Ranchero... Neutral 

Rotating assembly will go to machine shop in next 2 weeks.
Will get basic engine put together and run-in on the engine stand.
Then I'll finish / fab the blower drive.

Still have some front suspension things I need to work out..

I have seen the little car in person it should be a wicked little ride for sure. Back about 30 years ago my ex sister in-law's brother had one that was orange with a 289 with a 4 speed in it that thing was a blast but he lost control one night and totaled it out in the rain. He could get on it at 60mph and it would light up the tires.
