This beautiful '33 Ford 3 window belongs to Ray Simpson out of Montana. It had a weak, generic crate engine in it that just didn't do this car any justice, so Ray called us to have a nice, blown small block built for it, and then had us install it.
The engine is a mild 500+ HP small block with a 4 bolt main block, all 4340 forged internals, H-beam rods, JE pistons, a special blower grind roller cam, lightweight valve train, a set of 215cc Victor Jr. heads topped off with a BDS 6-71 huffer and a pair of Quick Fuel Technology carbs. It also has an MSD billet ignition system. It has a 700R4 tranny and a 9" Ford rear end in it. We installed a 2,500 RPM stall converter to help make this little beast launch hard. This is the ultimate hot rod, with the blown small block and the black paint with great looking blue and purple flames, it is a head turner for sure!
The install wasn't that easy because we had to move the engine back about 2 inches which opened a whole can of worms with the steering joints and angles, the radiator outlets, the transmission linkages, the brake pedal assembly, the exhaust system, the tranny crossmember and so on, but we worked our magic on it and it really came out nice.
While it was here we also installed a new chrome tilt column and a set of ceramic coated headers to clear the angle plug heads. Once that was done, we took it to our friends at Muff 'n Stuff mufflers and had a really nice exhaust system installed on it. This baby sounds awesome now! When you see and hear this baby coming down the road, you KNOW it is as much about GO as it is SHOW!
