1948 Austin A40 Dorset (Hotrod)
Last updated Dec 16, 2007
This car was in Jeg's stable at one time. They were going to run a Gas class with it with a Ford cammer motor. It never got done. A buddy of mine bought it at the Street Rod Nationals in Columbus w/o the cammer and I got it from him. So I built it with a small block Chevy and a Old School Attitude! I've been a gasser fan all my life!
Short wheelbase, straight axle, 350 4 bolt small block, 350 turbo w/Vega converter, and BIG old's rear with 488 posi gears. Mild cam and alum intake w/750 single pumper and small heads now. Had bigger cam, tunnel ram w/660 center squirters and 3500 converter. Ran 11s then 12s now. Real original magnesium American Torque Thrusts w/Bigs and littles. Wheelie bars, fiberglass tilt front end. fiberglass rear fenders, and fiberglass trunk lid. Been sittin in our barn and neglected last season, gotta get it out and freshen it up and go play again.
Flip out turn signals
Mods that aren't factory? Just bout everything but the flip out turn signals! LOL
