The power plant for this beast is a 390 cubic inch Cadillac engine from a 1959 Eldorado, bored .030 over to become 396 cubic inches. Fuel is provided via 6 vintage chromed stromberg 97 carburetors on top of a very rare Edelbrock CA-6 intake manifold, which has been polished. Spark is from a Vertex Magneto…a real one, not a look alike electronic distributor. Valve covers are very rare Edelbrock finned aluminum covers which have also been polished. Water pump, oil pan, pulleys, 4 blade fan, generator, valley pan have all been triple show chromed. It has a very aggressive Babe Edson 500/300 cam, which is a lopey full race grind. The headers are custom made stainless steel zoomie pipes with removable baffles. Radiator is a brand new modified Ford Mustang radiator. A Wilcap transmission adapter mates the engine to a GM turbo 400 automatic with a B&M 3000 stall torque converter. Shifter is a Hurst Quarter Stick.
