This is my 1955 hotrod T-bird.
292 Y block bored .060 over to 301 cu in. Forged TRW's, Holman Moody 882 cam, ported heads, '57 Ford 2-4 intake with Holley 4000 carb's, 40 series Flowmasters. World Class T-5 tranny, 3.31 highway gears, 11" disc brakes on front drum rear, rack & pinion steering.
I rebuilt it in 2003 and have put abt. 15,000 miles on it since then, I've driven the long haul in the 2004 Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour from Arlington TX to Green Bay WI, also been all over Texas and in 2007 I drove it to Joplin MO for the HAMB Nationals at MOKAN Dragway.
I have gotten as good as 18.9 mpg cruising on the highway @70 mph ------ and alot less when running thru the gears and getting my foot in all 8 barrels.
Hope you guys like it, I'm lovin it and putting as many miles on it as I can.
