1956 312 Y Block Startup 2012
we have not touched this in about 3 years, despite some troubles ... this
engine ran, and ran well. Skip ahead to about 9 minutes if you want to
miss the problems and just want to see this thing run.
My Dads' 272 Ford, which he has rebuilt with new cam, Weiand triple intake
and 3 94's. The engine wasn't bolted down at all on the stand, so it
couldn't rev too hard as it tipped a lot. Still needs headers and a later
distributor with mechanical advance. Will be hooked to a 4-speed toplader.
Not a Rat-Rod: 1922 Ford Roadster -/BIG MUSCLE
• Anji Ramsey
Family heirlooms tend to come in many different shapes and sizes. Sometimes
they come in the form of a piece of jewelry, other times a piece of
furniture. Rarely though do they come equipped with a 255 cubic inch Ford
flathead, side pipes and a sound that rivals most orchestras. This is Anji
Ramsey's 1922 Ford Roadster and it's a car that's been in her family (in
one way or another) for the better part of 65 years.
