I am presently restoring an old 1957 Ford Custom 300 Fairlane to a Ratrod flare and I'm looking for an older engine. Ford 302, 351, 390 or 429 engines are what I'm interested in
but nothing newer than mid 80's. I want a carb motor.. no fuel injection. My car presently has 3 on the tree shifter and newer motors won't bolt to this tranny set up and I'm not going to a floor shifter. I don't care if it's presently in a vehicle or not. Old F150 truck motor will also do. email me at barking_eye@yahoo.ca if you have something like this.

If anything give it a resto-mod type of look. You have the wrong kind of car to be making a rat rod.

You will spend 10's of thousands of dollars tied up into making ita rat rod and you still won't actually have one of these:
