Markemark, I may run it a Bonneville. Smile Seriously, our local track runs a 5.80 index class, so I maybe make enough power for that.

Looks great, I like the intake approach.

Looks like it's gonna be a pretty decent power plant.

Mike, I was telling Cury1 earlier I "thought" I was finished racing and that this would be a bad-to-the-bone street rod. I was wrong.

You have to have something that keeps your mind working and goals. I knew you were not done. You may slow down some and not race in extreme heat etc. Just take it easy and make racing fun but to completely walk away? Nope.

I am a long-time customer of BTE. I always receive good parts and service from Brandon and Crew. This is a BTE 1.98 gear set and deep pan for the Woodebaker Powerglide.

The Woodebaker is becoming a world car. Chevy engine and trans, Ford distributor, Ford rear 8.8 axle, and several American aftermarket manufacturers. I will be on the lookout for some MOPAR additionSmile

This main hoop is cataloged for an early Chevelle. as you can see, it is a perfect fit. It will have an upper and lower 6"x 6" plated sandwiched between the floor. Then an outrigger with attached the bottom plate to the frame.

But first, the floor will be cleaned of all old insulation and rust.
