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?

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.

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.

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
