Look ripper mate, really good, I like the 'old-skool' look of a tri-power!!

Had a mate with a 390 T-Bucket with that set-up but with the oval air-filter, a very impressive looking rod engine.

Were tri-power set-ups offered in '66??

Oh, and I notice on your model the engine sits waay forwards from the firewall compared to my '66 - anybody know why the design was like that in the early 'birds??

Skyd, that looks way cool, in fact the entire car is impressive. Side by side burnouts with you and EG?

The AC is missing on this beuty, and that take up the space between the engine and firewall otherwise.

OH, never have seen one with A/C - and the '66 model does not have that gap - for A/C or anything.

So it seems a hell of a gap!!

Here is the big black box that holds the AC.

Thanks for the nice words Guys, its nice to see that hard work is always appreciated here.

One day I plan to get my car to EG's Coast for some west coast cruizin. Would love to get a big group of birds and hit the road... What an awesome sight that would be.

I don't have a kick down hooked up yet, for now I have been manually shifting. I have a ratchet floor shifter in her(fun to shift!!)

I took the AC about 4 years ago when I first started the engine work. Next year I may get it back in. I need to find a good cover.

Next is to steel EG's New Ribbed valve covers to match the Air Cleaners
