    Lol, I was wondering earlier if the flathead guys are like fat guy regarding new technology.

    I'm in the market for a stock hood for an 83 Grand Prix if any of you guys run across one. My new combo will fit.

    This is my second car with a flathead Ford engine.

    You have to really be a true believer to run one... I couldn't put an OHV small block in my '50 or '35 Ford.

    The engine is capable of low ETs and very high land speed records but that takes all your money.

    I had an old timer friend that built blown 8BA flatheads for the Model A class(not streamlined). He was getting close to the 200mph club.

    Because of their 3 main bearing design, you need expensive machine work to get a girdle over the center main bearing.

    He had one of these engines in a street car. You could fuck up a lot of fast cars with 1950 technology... Just expensive as fuck.

    That's why my car has electric cutouts to bypass the glasspacks...

    If you didn't know it was a flathead, it sounds like a built modern small block. That fucking cam duration!

    The best way is via Fastenal. They have their own truck line and will ship a pallet or crate store to store pretty cheaply.

    I went and searched there and got seven pages, but not one stock hood. It may very well be a luck of googlefu
    . I've checked rock auto and all the body suppliers I know of without any luck.
    We have a fastenal here, and if you'd be willing to fuck with it, I'll pay you for your time. I can call and check about shipping if you're at all interested.

    And you're not a firewood chopping, flannel wearing MAN if you don't risk a boiler explosion every time you ride.

    Ears recruit,

    Get on my quarter deck for being an integrity violator.

    You owe me 10 push-ups for every cubic inch of displacement in that heinous distributor mounted in the rear engine.

    Deep! Move!

    Pfft, 8 cylinders. Nothing like banging on all four. Although I have an 8ba waiting next to my Model A it may never go in. Something about making an 80 year old burn down the road really rings my bells. I don't care how ya do it, as long as you go as fast as it can it's all good.

    And it's definitely bad ass

    This is my 28 chevy AB Deluxe roadster. 383 chevy/ TH 350/ 8.2 LSD/ 3:73. I've almost got it running, the engine came out if a 10 second monte (w 10/psi)that I was a hired shoe in and I can't wait to see how it runs in a small light car.
