AOD with 4R70W Internals
Lentech valve body installed. This valve body gives a true 4 gear selection and overdrive lockout switch.
8.8 with tubes cut making total axle width of 45.25 inches to fit the new 11 inch rims with 12 inch tires and 3 inch backspacing.
347 with comp cam XE282HR, AFR 185 heads, Edelbrock Performer II intake, flat top forged pistons.
Nice work Don!What stroker kit did you decide on?We need video of start-up!
man I like seeing this kind of work
Is that all gonna fit under that hood???!!
I like the rims you have chosen. They look good with the red paintjob. Well done man!
That thing is gonna be sick with those wide wheels....
i have a 62' i bought about 10 years ago...
runs great but needs tons of work...stock 144 with 2 speed
How are you gonna stuff all that motor between the shock towers????
True that! Don is going to have the first Ranchero here worth over $20K.
awesome!...You truly are the new "Dandy Don"
It may be worth that or more in parts but no one is ever going to pay that much for a Ranchero We still love them anyway.
Got my kit from CHP, they had the best prices and broadest choices in my opinon. The crank is a scat cast steel crank and probe pistons forgot who the rods are from.
The motor sits low and the falcon/ranchero have quite a bit of room under the hood top to bottom, left and right well not so much.
Shock towers are gone, I installed a Heidts MII suspension so extra room now.
very cool......that really opens up room .....
kindof pricey......but wth......can't take it with you.......
Yeah thats what I thought at first too. I have almost enough money invested in rebuilding my front end and suspension to pay for a Mustang II swap. They really arent that much for what you get.
Good job Don!
Looks like you will end up with a small displacement rig that will end up near the top of it's class.
Lots of cubes can cover a lot of errors, or at least make people ignore them.
Keep up the good work.
you had better start a small fund for tires, cause that little thing is gonna be smokin' em.....
I'm sorry, but I was raised to believe that if you didn't have anything positive to say, then don't say it. So...I'm not saying.
