I'm looking at building a '69 Roadrunner post car into a day two street racer for a bit of fun, I have many period correct parts left over from other projects but need some ideas about what intake, carb, ignition & rocker covers etc to run.
The car is a 383 4-speed car but I will be updating the 383 with a 440 & the magnum 500 style wheels will probably go in favour of original Keystones, Super tricks or a combination of the two.

What are your thoughts? Thanks

I do have some of those parts & will research the others, parts here are a bit like rocking horse poo, quite hard to find so I usually import most of what I need, thanks

Not sure I want to go to tunnel ram yet but I like your other ideas, I have one of those coils & a cool can already & possibly the hold down bolts so I'll have to go hunting. The painted brake drums is a good touch & I did that back in the day myself & the period correct decal idea rocks! Cheers

Cheers, I must have the super tricks confused with another similar wheel, good list of other things!

I know this Tumblr is for "70's Street Machines" but take a look through some pages, might find some inspiration.

Your probably thinking of the steel chrome 5 spoke Cragar SST wheels, I had them on my 1970 4 speed Hemi Baracuda due to NHRA not allowing legal NGRA stockers to use lightweight aluminum wheels like the Super Tricks and Centerline wheels runaway
As far as buiding a 440 block, I wouldn't if you want to make north of 650 HP on pump gas tsk
Find a decent 400 block and build yourself a real good large C.I pump gas stroker motor devil
Tell people it is a original low deck 361 block that runs real good whistling devil grin
Especially the Furd and Cheby guys stirthepot grin

Does day 2 have to be what was available for that year of car or just in the era. I ran super tricks back when they came out in the early seventy's on my 68 roadrunner. Actually i'm still running them on my 67 barracuda today. Same Accel Super coil also . Just sold off my original Hurst Super shifter from the early 70's.

Wish these tires were back in production, but if you can find a decent pair of non rotted Super/Stock Formula 1's, that would be bananas on the street.
I got an overwhelming good response from wearing these 10- years ago. Imagine now.

Might be kinda hard to see, but look at the rear 1/4 glass of my road runner. Those are vintage "Holley Equipped", "Skyjackers", and "Cragar Hot Pipes" (whatever those are?) decals from back in the day. That's my favorite part of the car, lol. They're old, cracked, faded, etc. Love it!
