Part 2 - 1926 Model T Ford pickup rat rod cranking of Buick 455
This is the second video of my 1926 Ford Roadster pickup. Still a long way to go, but, it's slowly coming together. And yes, I'm leaving the body rusty with NO windshield!

Dual 4 barrel Offy intake with Holley 450 cfm carbs, Edelbrock RPM Stage 1 heads, 10.59 to 1 compression, TA 286-04H cam (custom ground camshaft with 234* / 252* at .050" - .478" / .478" lift - 113* LS + 4 degrees), 1970 block with oiling mods and zero decked, balanced, etc...
