I've got a 1.47 in it now. Of course, it only weights 2800 dry.
One of the first hod rods I ever saw had a Jimmy 292, with 3 Stromberg 2bbls on a log manifold. High boy 32 Ford Vicky. It was a monster. It firmly addicted me to acceleration at the age of 3, in 1952. It used to beat flat head fords like whipping a stepchild. The owner was inspired by a book by a writer named named William Campbell Gault to paint the thing conch shell pearl pink with copper plated wheels and trim. Not the first lick of chrome on it.
