Flathead Ford Engine Start Up
we found this in a field. we kept the stock crank, rods, and pistons. this
has new valves and guides. new crane cam, and aftermarket edelbrock heads,
with fenton duel 2x2 intake with a pair of rebuilt holley 94's. i added
headers with harley davidson mufflers, and a high torque mini starter. ive
had some of my friends laugh at my color scheme, they thought it should be
in a circus. a girl on a facebook page thought it was a spaceship so we
launched it today.

Flathead v12 (lincoln zephyr) Rat Rod Truck.mpg
This is a crazy creation by dad is building from spare parts from other
projects. It is a 1935 truck that has been Z-framed, chopped, channeled
and roadstered. To make the gears high enough for road use, it has 2 1935
4 speed transmissions (no syncro/double clutch). One is running backwards
to act as a variable overdrive. The most exciting part is that it has a
1947 Lincoln Zephyr Flathead V12 with single header pipes coming off each
cylinder. That makes for a very unique sound. Enjoy the video.
