"Dream Modification"

Post  t-bird racer on February 12th 2017, 10:55 am

Ok,

What are your favorite dream modifications are.  I'll Start.

1. Boss 429 or SOCC 427.  These are probably not attainable due to the high cost, and availability.

2. I have always wanted to convert my 521 to a Ron's terminator Alcohol set up.

So let's here those off the wall, day dream set up you have always wanted.

Mines getting closer. Got a screaming deal on a F-250, EFI 460, OD auto. Planning on replacing the existing 460 carb engine C-6 trans in the '57. Chevy.
THEN, I can put the FI crossed badges on the fenders, and make more friends ! woohoo .!.

I'd build a big inch stroker and a full boogie 'glide in a lightened '70 Torino Cobra...then stuff it in a time machine and go back to 1970 to race all the street squirrels I knew back then. Cool They only THOUGHT my old Fairlane was bad. Wink

.......you did say this was a dream, right?

Doug,
I can fully appreciate your desire for a HR 427.  Would be super cool.  I know other folks get all excited about the cammer, but man, a 427HR based engine in a 63/64 Galaxie is very exciting to me.

(Speaking of which, did ya see the HR top end in the classifieds on the FE page?)

$4500 isn't too bad considering: http://www.network54.com/Forum/75943/thread/1487276448/last-1487327646/View+thread

You know something Drew .I have had a brand new 2x4 high riser and single four intake manifold for the 427 it was new also .This was about 35-40 years ago .The heads are mostly all worn or ported to death .I sold the intakes for 429 parts and a f427 edelbrock intake with some boot . For now I will just stick with my 460.Drew if you are looking for an engine(fe) for the truck let me know I might have something for you .Take care Ga. Boy !!
