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.
