I went to Terry's last week and picked up my parts. Wow, this guy is amazing. Did you know he made the bodies for Ronnie Sox' "Boss" Mercury Comet? He also did the body work for Scotty Cannon's pro mod '41 Willys and the '53 Studebakers. He still has the mold for the Comet front end and the whole body for the Cannon Willys'. He can make any fiberglass parts for any car. His Fairmont parts are top notch. Hotrodder himself with a really cool little Chevy powered rat rod he just finished and likes to putt around in and take to car shows. Cool guy and still kicking at 70 years young. Big buddies with Gene Fulton. They like to fly airplanes together.

getting put on the dyno at the end of the month at Bouchers racing engines here in Rowley Ma


472 ci
1050 dommy from Dan Davinchi custom to my build
custom solid lifter cam from randy malik
Eddy heads
forged icon pistons around 12.5.1 compression with heads
mezierre water pump
plennum ported viktor intake

going to be ran on Vp 113
inner springs out for cam break in on the dyno then some pulls , I will keep this updated with dyno sheet and pics

in the fairmont i will have to slow it up , going to use ezplate sytem . Plan is to run 10.50 index locally



My guess is right around 600hp maybe a little less

You guys have any guess's on hp go for it

Looks like you have everything coming together and looking good.I would have a hard time drilling those wheels.With the PBR they recommend not drilling for rim screws.

i know thats one direction im leaning but , at the end of the day the rims dont win the race nor does drilling or not. I just know running an index i need to go A to B consitant but im really on fence .

28x10.5 stiff side wall slick or tubes ( drill rims)
28x10.5 PBR with hytack

strange singles up front
qa1 single coilovers in rear
