1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
1973 Ford Pinto For Sale North Carolina Updated 11/20/2013. Price: $3700 . 27834
1973 Ford Pinto, 2.0 sohc 4cyl c4 automatic 3.42 gear 37500 original miles.
Cylinder head upgraded to Ported Polished Bowl Blended Hardened Valve
seats. New Solid Lifters, New Followers, New Custom Crane Camshaft.
Crane Cam number is for-272-2-10, specs are 2500 to 6000 rpm power band,
3000 cruise rpm, valve lift is 436 / 460 and the duration is 272/282.
New Exhaust, leaves the header at
approx 2.5 inches, and tapers to 2 and 1/8th inch at the rear bumper,
still much larger than stock pinto 4cyl Exhaust.
14inch centerline wide rims with large NEW 14 inch tires, 9 inches wide,
26.5 inches tall. C4 Automatic transmission new stock torque convertor and
Car needs a paint job, and considerable punch and fill around edges,
mainly near the front and back of the rear wheels and the roof, where the
original vinyl top was removed, leaving glue/remnants and some pitting.
Roof needs grinding smoothing sealing and repainting (with bumpy paint?, to
simulate the vinyl top look?) - nearly impossible to see in video or
photos. YES, those areas are sealed up with Black Rustoleum, ANY TIME I see
any rust trying to break thru and or spread.
Listen to the audio, the solid lifter camshaft gives the engine a nice
lope at idle, can hear it better when it's IN GEAR, at idle. Dark Forest
green, I might choose.
Car comes with a fibreglass trunklid spoiler (not installed) as well as
some FREE original extra parts such as gauges/doorhandles/windowcranks and
2 cyl heads, 1 2.0 for rebuild, 1 2.3 already rebuilt, if desired.
$3700 my loss, you hit the lottery at this price. Overall cost to me?
11000plus. 450 holley, offenhauser intake, header, custom Exhaust. Cyl head work, parts, labor and
fabrication cost me 6000 in parts/labor. Add new radiator, brakes,
alternator, starter, AC (400 parts/labor TWICE to get it RIGHT), 14 in
wheels/NEW tires, and it's easy to add to over 11000 using simple math.
Those costs, you wont have to repeat. Rather you can just do the bodywork
and paint. This car has been painted ONCE in 40 years, SIX YEARS AGO, and
that was a cheap maaco respray in black, did not include color conversion
(doorjams etc still show mostly orig white/green).
Considering the age, its held in pretty good, overall condition. The
interior is all inact, with no rips or tears in the upholstery or
headliner, 1 crack on the dash, that is covered with a green matching felt
cover. Orig Shag carpet is not worn. Floors are solid. It's not rusty
underneath, like many 40-year old pintos that you will find. Find 1 with
only 37500 original miles, and these mechanical upgrades/updates. Cylinder
Head work: 1500 in JUST labor at the Coleman Brothers machine shop in
Baltimore, Md, for porting, polishing, bowl blending and very slight
shaving to ensure flatness (may be minimal increase in c/r from that, I'm
guessing .2 for 8.8 to 1, based on less than 20 thousands shaved for
flatness) - factory c/r, I JUST READ, was 8.6 to 1 and 100 bhp.
If U can do the bodywork/paint yourself, or hire it done for cheap, you'll
have a pretty nice driver quality 4banger, not a show car, but a decent
street machine, cruise-ins car, for under 6000 bucks, plus or minus some
Can you find a dirt dobber nest under the hood or underbody? I'm sure you
can. This car has been driven approx 200 miles in the past 2 years. Stored
under a roof, but open air, sometimes also under a car cover. This car had
to be PURCHASED with 30,000 orig miles on it, 6 years ago, driven 7300
miles locally, before the mechanical restoration/upgrades began.
Thanks for watching listening and reading. Asking 3700 Firm with extras

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would
make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I
also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have
a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's
for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more
interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after
all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some
of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need
to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though,
easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway,
enjoy the video.
Here's some links.
