      Looks a little like the one, Ian Roussel of Full Custom Garage worked on a few years ago.

                Needs to have 6 mikuni slide carbs one for each port ran my vw bush buggy with 4, 28mm mikunis took a bit to get it set up. But once it was performed awesome and looked cool.

                  That’s awesome looks like it could be a bit of a nightmare but on a rod would be worth it. I’ve often thought about doing this car into a rod but just can’t except for paint all original and done ACA97CD2-4CD3-45A7-9636-2D392D032A22.jpeg

                      The guy that did my 273 heads has a 42 coupe with a leaning tower, a OD 833 and a 4.10 geared 8 3/4. It get's somewhere around 27 mpg on the highway with a 14x32 tire tucked up underneath. Check out the tail pipe hanger. (Woody needs to do some dusting. Looks like cobwebs.) LOL

                          I bought a 1927 Dodge coupe just to have a hoodless home for this intake - I think we're on the same wavelength, 65 Dartman:

                                    Often thought about a 250 cheby 6 banger layed on it side and using a dry sump system through the lifter covers and having 6 singles on top with a similar header
