This has been on hold due to lack of funds. But with X-Mas just around the corner, i should be able to start working again.


Change of plans. This is gonna be a dedicated tow rig for a '69 4WD SC/Rambler. Only four are known to exist, they were specially made for Category IV in the '69 Baja 500. I think my crazy just got crazier!
In its Prime:

In my book this car is so full of awesome, it can only be topped by bacon seat covers!


Cheers,
-John-

Hahaha, love the rambler. Can't say as I've seen the 4x4 ones before.. Sounds like you've found yourself a lengthy project, but you might as well go all the way and make the "Bacon seat covers"

well, a little update for you guys.

I have the front suspention drawn out to 1/10 scale on my blueprints. Ive started to draw the Ibeams on the piece of 1/8" thick styrene i found in my scrap pile, i also have access to the scroll saw, belt sander, and drill press now that we rearranged the shop room. Keep watching, ill update when i finish the beams themselves..

Cheers,
-John

ok, from little update to !!

I have the front I-beams cut out and Im working on putting the details on the sides as well as the steering knuckles.

Pics of the I-beams, US Quarter for size reference.


I know there not perfectly straight, but thats the best i can do without melting the plastic with the scroll saw. Plus, Im adding a layer to the outside to add some detail.

Cheers,
-John-

Man, i had to dig to find this thread... then I realized I had a link to it in my sig. Well, I havent forgotten about this... I just kinda lost everything in the first week of January. Found it all yesterday, after work.

Expect some updates on this along with the Hormiga now that I have a job.

Cheers,

Good to hear its back on. Touch these I-beams up with a bit of sandpaper and they'll be straight enough.

nope, I do mean 360 (Vin Code Y), the 351 wasn't an option on the Ford Truck.


Nice catch that it is a Mopar Motor as well, you had me plenty supprised!

Well, it's actually a 360FE engine by ford. Windsor was in the 90 degree family, totally different. The 360 was really a junky engine, only available in trucks for a few years. The 390 is what you wanted. I can't wait to see this I beam setup unfold!!

does the 427 swap out with the 360 easily? wasn't the 427 developed from the 360/400? I just read something like that in Modified Mustangs & Fords.

I believe it does, Ive seen quite a few 1968-72 Ford Trucks with the 427 swapped in.

Not too much to update with, I still dont have my Debit card yet so no order from Tower Hobbies.

Cheers,

I dropped a 429 Thunder Jet into my 79 and it bolted right up, so I would imagine the 427 should drop into the 68-72 models with ease.
