Friend of mine sent this picture today. His in progress 1935 Plymouth gasser. Speedway axle, 9" Ford rear, 454 Chevy, with Muncie M22 4 speed. Just mocked up now, so long way to go yet. Wheels are ET's all around. Old originals up front, and new mfg. in the rear. I think the rears are 14" or 15" wide wheels!

Street freaks are cool. I like the idea so far, too bad it's not a 440 or max-wedge, though. I hope he joins up here so we can follow his build along, too. Is he around here?

About 4 houses from me! He's the same guy who has the baby blue '48 Austin gasser. The car is not at his house presently, as the chassis work is being done by someone else. It should be home in the next month though. I may be doing the engine mods to the 454. It's getting a tunnel ram, with big cam and gear drive.

....or a two-four cross ram 413 with the carbs hanging over the front fenders.

It needs a blown 392. I put one in a 36 Plymouth years ago and the valve covers hung out over the fenders. Definately made a statement.
He's got the same problem with the 454. The front fenders had to be notched to clear the valve covers, and also to clear the tubes on the fenderwell headers. That's a tight engine compartment, even with the engine sitting down in the frame!
He'll never go with a Mopar engine in his coupe. He likes the '35's body lines, but he's a diehard Chevy guy and wont use a Mopar in anything. I asked him how he could own a Mopar vehicle, and he said he didn't much care what body it was as long as the body was pre WWII.
