1940 Ford Woodie - Underhood
It may look like a stock '40 Woodie at first glance, but look
a little closer and you'll see a wolf hiding under that paneled work-truck
The only thing this motor has in common with the one that
used to sit there is the number of cylinders. You are looking at a GM Performance
Ram Jet 350. This fuel-injected small block puts out 350 h.p. at 5200 rpm
and over 400lbs of torque. If you can't catch a wave with this puppy, you
need to let someone else get behind the wheel. The brackets, pulleys, and
air cleaner are from Street & Performance. Valve covers, wire looms,
oil breather and the reverse rotation water pump are polished aluminum from
The Polished AC compressor is part of the Vintage Air system.
The radiator and condenser are Walker and cooled by a Cooling Components
electric fan unit.
All of this beauty and performance is riding on a T.C.I .chassis
with polished front and rear disc brakes, chrome anti-roll bar and a posi-traction
rear end. That rear end hooks up to a TCI Transmission equipped with a Dalenzie
heavy-duty torque converter. Fuel is stored in a custom, stainless-steel,
Rock Valley gas tank.
