OK so this year racing was not good to me. Had the car out 3/4 times and trouble every time. So after sitting at Norwalk in September I made a vow that I would get the 63 FIXED and I also will either have a spare engine or a spare race car for 2015 or both. Looks like a spare race car coming for now. My friend Dave (DoubleD) has also decided to get back in the game. So pulling out the 64 car thats been sitting in the corner for about 12 years or so - we are going together to build a spare car. Details as we figure it out but should be able to run NSS in the 11.0 or maybe 10.50 bracket and be a street car. It will be my spare and Dave will also use it and maybe even his son John. Heck my wife can drive it too as long as my car is still running


Going to be a kind of budget build using many parts that I have been finding in my garage along with a few new goodies. Dave is in charge here so he can do what he wants








Knock the dust off and get started ----

Hmmmm - wonder if Dave remembers how to stage and race a car

This is the engine that came out of it. I told Dave we could put on some chrome valve covers and them newfangled do dad plug wires and it should go 11's.



He looked at me kind of strange

Somebody would probably have given you $500.00 for those 'original' transmission cooler lines,,but you bent them.

I may be a little rusty at driving but - I am sure I will figure it out again

We got lots of parts
Pistons - very light Mahle 520 grams
Eagle crank and rods - somewhere north of 500"

Heads - Choices - two versions of EZ's

Intakes take your choice of crossrams, tunnel rams and Mod Man or (gast) a single four barrel

A couple roller cams to choose from

A spare 727 and three converters

It like shopping at Summit!

Just time to get busy

Hmmmm... I'd go with the tall ram and the bigger EZ's but then you would have to go with the tall wedge scoop(not a big fan of the tall ones) they look like a couple newspaper mailboxes stuck to the hood
Sounds like a fun project

I was thinking of putting a set of NOS fogger nozzles on it and just using the two barrel carburetor to start it and drive to the line - I bet it would go mid 11's once or twice!

Man you have some nice cars Russ. That thing is in great shape, especially the interior.
I vote on the tunnel ram with a Hilborn scoop sticking through the hood.
