Miniature Ford Shop Tour

Yesterday I went to Southern Middle Tennessee to visit a guy I met at a swap meet I did a couple of weeks ago. He said he had a right rear stepside fender for a F100 I might be interested in. Here are some pics from the visit. Told him I would be back.

Fairlane with a 94 Lincoln LSC drivetrain







56 Crown Vic with a 351C and 4 Speed








56 F100 that is close to being road ready





THE ENGINE in the 56. A carbed 4.6.




A small video I made with my phone of the engine running in his 56'
YouTube - Carbuated 4.6 1956 F100

That is awesome!! I wonder who makes the intake? Also, I wonder why he went to all that trouble to make the box and stuff to run a mechanical fuel pump instead of an electric fuel pump? I love he HEI dist, but thought that somebody made a crank trigger type ign for that engine?? I love the look of the dual carbs on it, it looks and sounds awesome!! Answers!! We need answers!!

Terry,
The guy made it. Im not sure why he went to the mechanical pump. I got a buddy here who wants to see it. So when I go back I will inquire. If you have anymore questions shoot um to me. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I go back down.

Talking

He did a great job!! I was just curious about the fuel pump thing cause that was an awful lot of trouble that could have been averted with an electric pump. Also, whats the deal with all the oil lines every where? What did he do for the trans?? I know some of the "early" 4.6's had the same bellhousings as sbf's so you could possibly run a regular AOD or even a C4 or C6? These are some of the questions I'd love to know from this cat. He seems like a genius to have done all this. I'd love to pick his brain on this subject. I have a very wild project in the works right now, and maybe another one after seeing that carbed version of that 4.6

A dual carbed 4.6? I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that one!

The carbed 4.6 in the truck does not have all the oil lines. He told me it had to do with the fuel pump??? I will ask him though. He is running an regular AOD tranny.
