    Looks like my last post was 2011 here and I’ve been away from my car for 9 or so years. Been ordering parts for the last 2 months for it. Basically what I’m doing is wiping down the windows, pulling the drivetrain and replacing it with a Steve Morris built 18* Head 540 with a side slung F2 Procharger. Blow-Thru and Water to Air Intercooled.

    A Fab9 has been on order for a month. Transmission is still in the works.

    Will have updates soon.

    I’m calling it Project Munson Roy E.

    This is what the 70 looks like after sitting in my parents garage for the last 9 or so years.

    How time gets away. Sounds like a nasty build.

    Plans changed. SME says I’m only limited by the size of the blower. You don’t say.

    What happened to the paint? Did you start a re-paint and the project went on hold?
