    It's going to be very nice when you're done, Brian. With all the work, you might consider putting an LS or LT motor in it. They idle/run very smooth, have lots of power, don't leak oil, and are easy to install (at least my experience). Good work!

    I agree totally with Richard! (might be the first time??? *L* .. Not really, we usually agree but have no problems voicing our differences when we don't!)..

    I too think you might want to consider an LS engine... pretty reasonably priced, great performance and mileage, and lighter weight on the front of that 39!

    There are really nice two piece polished aluminum valve/coil covers available, not cheap, but nice. A number of manufacturers make them.

    I have no idea of what your beautiful SBC looks like, but after many daily driven SBC's I've seen, the LS engines are a work of art, covers and all. Chrome valve covers and air cleaner were all it took decades ago to look cool, but no faster.

    Thanks guys. A LS engine would be nice but the plan for this car is a small block chevy with a carb. Trying to keep it as simple and low budget as possible so the most modern technology will be an electronic ignition distributor.

    When you pop the hood with 3x2 carbs or a Tunnel Ram with 2x4s you don't need a plastic cover.
