First attempt at YouTube linked videos on this site so fingers crossed.
sounds pretty healthy & congrats cool Petty tribute too
Gonna have to take a trip to Santa Cruz...
Nothing sounded bad. And if no major leaks? I'd say you got a keeper!
More pictures please
For those that asked, here's a walk-around
Do you have an estimate on the hp ?
It was 508HP/498 ft/lb with small dual quads, we're guessing 550HP now with the LeMans carb, NASCAR intake manifold and headers but will have it run on the dyno in Sept
Nothing sounds like a Hemi That's going to be one cool car! You did good on your videos but please hold your camera/phone sideways next time.
Very nice!! Well done!! Thanks for sharing.
Cranium approves! Just for curiosity, what's that bung on the top front of the left valve cover for?
Hi Cranium- That's a NASCAR one quart single shot quick oil filler. Open the hood, drop the mating single quart holder, pull the trigger, dump a quart and go. The motor alone has a number of details like that, thanks for noticing. The Petty Museum has been very helpful (thanks Bonnie) and we have access to Petty's '68 Torino at Canepa's
You've done an outstanding job building a Petty Tribute Car. Just gotta say I sure love the color and the Hemi.
We caught a break on the Petty blue color after a visit to the museum in NC and a dozen attempts at matching it. Turns out a friend of a friend worked on some actual Petty restorations and provided guidance. We shot a sample and snuck it against a real vintage Petty car, perfect. We took a risk with the hand brushed aluminum and steel throughout the engine bay but just fell in love with the raw metal on such a raw motor against the Petty blue.
