I have been thinking hard about what to do with this engine.

I finally came up with this. Its a Quickdraw Supermod that has been hiding away in the archives. I found quite a few of the parts for it. I need to go to storage and look for more. I am sure I have everything... at least I hope!

The idea would be to polish all the aluminum on this and even the rear end perhaps. The body panels would have some carbon fiber accents.

Awesome idea!, i look forward to seeing this amazing project develop. Al

I can see that we share a common thought. "Everything goes better with wine", is that a Cab?

Mike, that's an awesome little project & it has just reminded me to ask you for some advice.
Do you know of any " non running " 350/360 size look-a-like V8 motors to use in a sprint car shelf queen.
I've built up one of those "visable" plastic V8's, with a huge amount of modifications, but I believe, it is too big, not by much. I think they must be bigger than the Conley block. I'd like to get my hands on a non running Conley, or do you have any other thoughts ?

Purely my opinion, body panels of any sort of metal or fiberglass with a vintage paint theme and colors, stay away from that carbon fiber crap. If you have the resources, this body style would be nice.

Emilio. This engine has too much bling for a build like that. It deserves a car with just as much character

I was wondering where you got that body. I made a mold for a body like that. I only did one body from it. Just wondering if that could be it. John
