1941 WILLYS GASSER ---FRESH BUILD
1941 Willys gasser coupe. Just finished the build yesterday and took it on
its maiden voyage today. Have to be gentle at first and work out the bugs,
then after we break it in we can drop the hammer on it. Car was completely
built at Fast Times Rods in New York with custom chassis, ladder bars, roll
bar, straight axle etc. Motor is a 383 stroker with Canfield aluminum
heads, well built 700r4 transmission from Bobek's Transmissions and Dennys
Nitrous Ready driveshaft.
Solid Axle Drag Falcon starts up at March Meet 2009
My business partner's original drag Falcon at March Meet 2009. The engine
is a 355 Chevy (350 .30 over, 14.5 to 1) with a .700 lift solid roller cam,
and he shifts it at 9,500 rpm. Transmission is a big shaft Ford Top-Loader.

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 has TH400 internals, custom Art Carr
convertor, and a Coan Racing transbrake . Front suspension is a Speedway
straight axle kit with custom made two position shackles, and custom
panhard bar. Rear suspension is stock leaf springs with custom 66" long
heavy wall ladder bars. Rear axle is a Lincoln Versailles unit with 3.89
gears and a Richmond Spool. 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. This is a period exhibition car, so it will not conform to current
NHRA spec. The car is being built to the 1965 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 full .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.
