Awesome!!!!.... Motor that is! A perfect moniker for a "back at ya, in your face" build. I've always considered a brand X motor in anything else as BLASPHEME! :shock:
65 Cyclone 460W, C4, trans brake, CalTracs
64 Cyclone (son's) 408W 8 stack EFI 6speed, Winters qc rear
64 Cyclone (son's)347, 4speed, mini tubbed 9"
1965 Caliente, 289, 4 speed, buckets, 51k miles
1969 428 CJ coupe (son's)
1965 Cyclone, tube chassis, 514bbf, glide w/brake

if you have to have a chevy,,,then by all means make it FORD powered,,, :lol: :wink: years ago I tried my best to buy a chevySS ,EL CAMINY O, was being sold with out engine and trans,,,was a good looking ride........I had a spare 289 c4 sitting in the shop and no place for it to go....so I thought I'd mess with those chevy boys at the RR....AND BUILD THIS THING ...the owner was a friend of mine and he knew I was all ford ,and ask what was I gonna do with it.....I honestly told him......he flat refused to sell it to me......I was going to take it to the super chevy show,,,,knowing I would get thrown out after I opened the hood,,but back then at my age a healthy dispute was right up my alley....today ,I wouldn't let it sit in my drive way........

Looks like a well built beautiful car, my first car was a 55 x.
But that is just stooping to their level.
Appears the owner has enough money, couldda spent it on 57 Fairlaine,, with a Sohc,,, there's a winner,, imo

I'd rather do it myself if it's done right or not,,,isn't that what hotrodding is all about?

My opinion...waste of a good motor. But I get it, to win trophies you have to do radical things.

A 57 Ford 2 door sedan, now thats one of my dream cars!

Almost felt the same way and a '55 Ford is a much better looking car.

See Ya,

Yes. agree that motor in a 55. 56 or 57 Fairlane 2 door would be the ticket!
