CHUCKLES GARAGE 62 Ford Falcon Gasser with BLOWN NAILHEAD Power!
This Is the Chuckles Garage "Strange Bird" 1962 Ford Falcon Futura A/GS
The car is powered by a Littlefield Supercharged 401 Buick Nailhead that
was originally in a 1960's drag boat. The motor sports a custom blower
manifold made here at the shop, custom pistons, custom rods, wild Comp cam,
Comp lifters, custom valve springs, custom hi-flow valves, mild port work,
custom pushrods, custom headers made in-house,vintage Weiand valve covers,
dual Buick Wildcat Rochester 4 Jets that were modified for use with the
blower with custom non-progressive linkage, Nicson front cover/engine
mount, custom motor plate, custom oil pan, and its backed by a built switch
pitch ST400 transmission that is from a 65 Riviera. Front suspension is a
Speedway straight axle kit with custom made two position shackles, and
custom panhard. Rear suspension is stock leaf springs with custom 66" long
heavy wall ladder bars. Rear axle is a Lincoln Versailles unit with 4.56
gears. Tires are Hurst Racing Super Cushions in the front, and Hurst 30x10
Piecrust slicks in the back. Wheels are Vintage American Racing Magnesium
spindle mounts up front (no front brakes) and vintage Shelby Cal 500's out
back. Seats are set back almost to the rear seat. Gauges are a Sun Super
tach, and vintage Stewart Warner oil, temp, amp. The car will have a 6
point cage, and a passenger seat as well when it is finished. This is a
period exhibition car, so it will not conform to current NHRA spec. The car
is being built to the 1966 NHRA rule book. It has the maximum crank center
height of 25", and near the maximum amount of engine set back as well.
Maximum setback was determined by the wheelbase. You are allowed 10% of the
wheelbase measured from the axle centerline to the first sparkplug hole.
This engine is set back 10" The car sports a fill .120 wall frame that will
be tied in to the .120 wall roll cage. It's very sturdy. All work on the
Strange bird is being done at Chuckles Garage.
