Default My Nailhead!

Always loved Nailheads & mine is a 425ci bored .60 to 431ci, Isky 3/4 cam, Sanderson block hugger headers & a 3x2 carb setup, straight exhaust! It has monster torque & I can go 30mph... give it 1/2 throttle & it'll smoke the big back tires! Only run it on the middle carb because it pretty scary on all 3!!!

Thanks guys... always wanted one & one finally crossed my path. Did a whole rebuild & this thing is a rip snorter! I have a quick change rear & when I hit the road I slam in a 2.19:1 rear gear & it pulls it so easy. People try to race me on the highway & at 80 stomp... no one's been able to hang so far even with that tall gear... lov it!!!
