I think I posted that here "for you" before MEL, awesome job you did there. I still have pics of your 63 Bel Air from when we met in Halifax. Nice to hear from you again.

I have seen that car in person a few times. I love the ultimate sleeper look of it

That's a great car! Talk about a sleeper.
If I had a time machine, I'd love to back to the muscle car era with a car like that.
The factory rims and hubcaps are a nice touch.

I know you don't have fun with that. Nice. Are you still running the Corvair driveline?

 Yes I used the Corvair driveline, ceramic six puck clutch disc, reinforced differential case, four spider gears, no breakage yet but I am careful with the throttle .:)

Nice car. Just curious. How does that work running reverse rotation? Different camshaft and starter or more to it?

409 has a Mercuiser reverse rotation hydraulic camshaft, camshaft button and I use a high torque after market starter for use on a Corvair motor. heavy duty Corvair clutch pressure plate ( can't use a standard rotation Chevrolet diaphragm pressure plate ) .reverse rotation Chris Craft marine water pump. The internal alternator cooling fan is for standard rotation but so far has worked trouble free.

I have seen this car a number of times at shows. A super sleeper to say the least. Looks like a car your grand ma Nellie would drive until you look under the hood. This car must smoke the hides for a mile.

It runs about 195 in traffic, but quite a bit hotter on the highway :(, still working on cooling it down a little.

all I can say is wow, do the front tires ever touch the ground, the 140 horse wasn't bad, even a high torque truck engine would launch her, nice job man
