That’s Glen and Micks cars. Glen’s full house, accumulator, crank trigger etc. definitely not over carbed with the triple Weber’s. Micks is a 390, best carb on a warm six.

He only had one on there last I looked. It’s a red. Yes that might be over doing it. I don’t think he would run it down the strip but Glens sedan does. 173 block bored and stroked to 202. Shortened Borg Warner rear, manualised trimatic, landcruiser front calipers, p76 rotors, unboosted.

800 cfm on a 6 cylinder streeter? Guys with hot 308's get bagged for that much cfm.

I’m told not by the owner that it apparently runs well and is fairly economical so there you go. I would have thought twin strommies would be more so.

Would be interesting to know if the 173 is definitely a red motor and if so what date it was manufactured.

173 cast in usual spot as I recall, not 2.8. Therefore a red.
