    Kewl ...

    The FE should make it about 150% kewler. To round out the package you need to start promoting hair growth on your knuckles, eating vast quantities of cheese, have a large R.F. tattooed on your forehead, and practice your through the roof shifting. Nice score. Mike

      I am looking for a 390,just not ready to buy...

      I do have an Uncle(Retired) and a Cousin(Welder that builds BBQ's and Smokers) that live in Red Bluff.
      I will ask around here, they seem to pop up dirt cheap around here. I picked up the one in the 58 with a nice cam, new performer intake, chrome dress up kit, new dist and oil pump and mustang headers (which I need to get around to selling) for $600. All I did was pull the pan, check the bottom end out, replaced the bearings and it runs great.

      Any 390 would do correct?

        By the way, looking for ideas on color scheme, the primer green military deal with the white wheels isn't 100% working for me.

        I am leaning toward doing the top black, running the wheels satin black and the body portion bare metal with rust, depending on what I find under the rattle can paint...

        Another thought was dark blue top, blue wheels, tan body?

        or black with the rust and primer showing through, red scallops with black or red wheels?

          1.If you go Bare Metal,buy a case of Gibbs.
          Please,NO Rust...

          2.THIS sounds really good!

          3.No Rust,No Primer

          Here's some inspiration for you...

            Hmmm, I like the bottom one. But I do like those wheels, I would like to find me some of those, or some artillery wheels. Anyone have either, I would need 16" with 5x5 pattern

              I would love to have something like that it would be a blast driving but I am afraid here in Ky it would be hard to find level roads to drive on

                now thats a cruiser

                tell me if I am wrong???? 28 or 29 Model A with a 30 or 31 radiator shell. If you want an Fe...how about buying a 360 truck motor..cheap as heck, 428 crank, 390 rods and pistons...Voila 410ci.
                now for me the engine should be a 303 or 324 maybe a 371 olds..(thats why they make fake olds valve covers to fit the chev. or even better maybe a mid 50's cadillac. But then I am old and grew up in my brothers chopped 50 merc. I had to laugh the first time I saw american graffitti and the guys in front of me didnt recognize the car.
                color??? maybe chromate yellow primer frame, bare metal with matt clear over it and the flat black top???? who I can see the dreams starting now... Great looking car, nice to know we have such diverse tastes here. Grant

                  I would sand back some bare metal spots on it in a random fashion, matt clear it, paint the wheels matt black, white wall tyres and have some "stressed" signage etched onto it....."Rusty's Rusty Rods". Voila

                    Totally love it! Want one too!!!!
                    Me and my buddy at work, who have a 56 Chrysler talk daily more about building something like this than work on the cars we already have.....
                    @ my61brd: great ones all 3!

                      Well, I am headed down the road you are talking about, started hitting the top with a color called semi-flat black. Started removing the paint with some thinner

                      Thinking I would get some different wheels for it actually.

                      Either some Kelsy Hayes or some Artillery Wheels

                          Here is where it is now....

                          And how do you like how it makes the 65 special look tall and big.....

                            It looks like a toy next to the '65 - oh yea - well I mean a kids toy.....

                            Something lower than a Squarebird - scary low if you ask me.

                            "Praise the lowered" - now that's just cool.
