    yeah i still have the body minus the front end door's and floor . i did want to go full tube frame but the cost of it was just to much at the moment so decided to put everything into my estate one which was always a much better shell still have a few ideas for what to do with the leftovers of the van though

    This is amazing, loving the car/van. The colour looks just perfect aswell. Good luck with the rest of the build, I will be watching this one intently.

    Cheers,

    Stu.

    Superb!!! another lover of the blue oval....

    Are you still using the original lower rear axle links... if so could I ask a huge favour as I need to know the length of these arms for a 289 cobra Im building.

    Love the 347...is it internally balanced? and what make is the roller timer? can you fit a 'standard' timing cover over it?

    yeah its an eagle stroker kit internal balanced alloy flywheel . the timing gears are just a set of summits own ones not sure who they are made by but exactly the same as my old pete jackson ones apparently these are the quiet ones though as the old ones where really loud fits under the stock cover but you will need to remove the oil splash lip just cut mine off and dressed it back with a flap wheel
