That intake/carb combo has followed on the next two motors I've had 450 c.i. and 493 c.i.

81 Plymouth Caravelle Wagon . 451 c.i. 727 auto 4:10 gear. Best et 11.12 at 120 mph. This last round I had my friend's wife for a ride. You can see at end of movie the smoke is the front U-joint blowing ,because of poor angles,taking out transmission tailshaft housing. Thanks to the safetyloop damage were reduced to these parts only.

Here testing new motor in my ex car. Now Owned by a friend. 498 c.i. 904 auto transmission , 4,10 gear (too high, will swap to 3.55 asap) lil 275-60-R15 ET street radial. With such a poor traction that day,much more power than previous 400 engine lack of experience from Jeff to handle wheel spin. He put out a great drifting show burning tires almost the whole 8th mile. Best run last year was 8.25 at 80 mph with a 1.7 60 foot time. I made a test pass after elemination in round 1 and clocked a 7.48 at 97 mph. with a poor 1.9 60 foot time. So we know power is there,we just need to handle it a bit more.

After I told a guy I might have a L1000 Day cab for sale. He accepted to buy it . I had started to fit a White/Volvo Corporate air ride with a 3.70 rear axle. Extend the wheelbase by almost a foot, thanks to suspension layout that allowed me to push back the axle a bit. So I did put all together regardless of cosmetic. We just need it to run and move for now. The friendly enthusiastic buyer will make it nice . Cheers , have fun my friend !! This beast is powered by an 855 Cummins 230 HP and a 10 speed transmission.
