When I was growing up I used to drive by the Old Packard plant where that engine may have been built ZZ.
Owning a Packard is still on my list. "Ask the man that owns one." :cool:

Actually my dream Packard engine build would be to do up a 56 Packard 374 V8. I tried to post a link to the HotRod Magazine Engine Masters build of that engine a while back, making 445 HP on the Dyno - but I can't figger out how to do the link thing - maybe someone can learn me how??
I say dream build because it's also a very pricey proposition but totally cool and unusual...
 
My pleasure.

I can't figger out how to do the link thing - maybe someone can learn me how??

I'd send a PM, but I can't upload my image there.

To post a link to a site or a specific page from that site...

- Go to the desired page
- Click on the address at the top of the screen. It will "highlight" as shown in the attached shot
- Right click and select "copy"
- Paste the copied address into your text

It's similar, but different than posting a full size pic from a thumbnail. You need both this site and the other site open at the same time. I hope that makes sense!

More crossbreeding, did away with the big ugly Ford pump and mounted a GM ps pump. Made a couple small brackets and used a Borgeson hose kit to mate it to the Mustang rack, also installed a pressure reduction kit so it doesn't overpower the rack. Got the brakes bled today too, just about done on the chassis then comes the body work fun :)

Before the bondo dust starts to fly and gets on everything, I did the seam sealing and started putting in the Hushmat, silver for the firewall and roof, the rest will get the black version.

Nice work as always!

The shop looks good compared to the garage.

I still think of the Caddy build from time to time. May just have to bump that thread to the top and look through it.

;)
