This is my new 417ci CHI cleveland based ford. On 98 octane pump fuel with
out of the box heads,manifold and 1050 dominator carb it went 682hp @7k and
Nothing exotic or trick other than a solid roller camshaft. This was the
virgin startup and never got a vid of a pull sorry. Going into a 3550lb XD
FORD 428 Cobra Jet Maverick Recovery 10 Second Old School Ride
This picture compilation is the Big Block 428 FE Maverick over the last 28+
years from 1986 to now. Pics from when it was bought and built in 1986,
then traded-off in 1992, then dismantled, lost in a barn, then back to us
in 2008 for recovery. Project has slowed down quite a bit of late but will
be getting back to "speed". A 434 and 454 cubic inch Ford FE Big Block are
staged for power. Thank you for taking a minute to visit and thanks for
351 Cleveland in 55 Ford : Nasty Cam + BIG exhaust = MUSIC
Spotted this old '55 Ford, pretty straight, but obviously no minty garage
queen original or fancy restored show car. Hmmm... cop wheels & fat
traction bars? Tracked down owner, talked '55s for a bit (had a black Vic
way back when) & asked him if he'd mind popping the hood for pix.
Him "OK, but first whatcha think's in there?"
Me "Uh, 272, 292, maybe 312 Interceptor?"
Him "Nope, that was long ago. Put a built 390 in there, blew it up. Built a
427, blew that up too. This is a *real* motor here. 351 Cleveland, son."
Me "OK... Wouldn't wanna fire that up, would ya?"
Too bad I didn't get a clip when he barked the tires on the way out of the
lot, heh heh.
1970 Maverick Grabber
This is my friend Roger's 1970 Maverick Grabber that his Grandmother
origially bought new. She was the only owner of this car and it still has
the original interior, paint and dealer installed a/c. Originally had the
straight 6 but now has a Stroked 347.
Assembling my 351 Cleveland. Reusing the entire reciprocating assembly
from my CJ block. Just wanted to freshen things up after almost 20 years
of running great and Drag Week 2013. Hopefully with a fresh rings it will
make some MORE POWER!
