I looked at the various engines installed in the 40 Fords and was amazed at the different looks people create. I am not a “Bling” person so I look for the painted and detailed motors. Each person spends a great deal of money on valve covers, air cleaners, headers, ignitions, etc. and tries to coordinate the overall look. Here are some I thought were unique.
More roadsters tomorrow.
The traditional stock green flathead always looks good to me.[singlepic=1256]
Here is the flathead with aluminum heads and chrome accessories. Nice early look and very popular among the old and young rodders.[singlepic=1255]
The standard small block Chey is very popular also. Nice use of color. This is Fords number one option.[singlepic=1250]
Hemi engines of all sizes are appearing in Forty Fords in increasing numbers. Tough fit.[singlepic=1252]
Blown Hemi is really an awesome sight under the hood of this old time coupe.[singlepic=1253]
Bling Ford motor with all the chrome you could fit under the hood.
Don’s Bell Auto Parts Deuce. Engine is a very healthy 327 SBC. Sounds like a Hot Rod. The red roadster is Terry’s Deuce he built in Michigan.
