Bruce can certainly build a really nice FPSB ;)

Bill,

Looks like that start of a great build, please keep us posted. The motor looks good as well, I like it :)

Question I have is with that intake manifold, will the carb setup fit under the hood?

Bill D 03-12-2013 09:11 PM

Yes it will

tkb289 03-12-2013 09:16 PM

Excellent !

Is the front spring ( looks like aluminum) just for looks, or will it eventually be hooked up and fuctional? Looks good, Nice build to follow....

Bill, I think it looks like you're on a very good track! The motor actually made my genitals swell.:LOL:

Nothing new to report. Bruce is still working on the car with the hope of getting it ready to ship to me early August. Today I ordered a custom radiator from Griffin Radiators. It will look like an original radiator but sized to fit the FFR chassis. That leaves only the transmission, wheels and tires left to purchase.

Looks great so far.

Progressing nicely Bill.
You're going to use a Toploader? :)
Rear end ratio in mind?
Do you have any engine specs you can feed us?
Cheers,
Glen
