Just fantastic work... If I had that seat, I would have to build a car for it. Nice work, really nice...
Suddenly I feel like building a gasser...lol...


Gasser is not a bad idea. Finished out the edge more tonight. The edge was the hard part:




G'day All,
My name is Jesse, Im a new member from Australia and I just wanted to say Hello! While I don't own a Pantera my current project car does have a Cleveland engine, it's an Australian 1972 Ford Fairmont you may recognise the body shape from the mad max movies. Anyhow, it's a work in progress, Im building the engine as a basic 410 stroker, with CHI 3V heads and dual plain intake. I look forward to getting to know some of you and learning more about Panteras, cheers,
Jesse
Hello SciFi, yes you can legally drive L hand drive cars here providing they are 30 yrs old or more. If it is younger than 30 it must be converted to R hand drive. Quite a few American muscle cars running around over here now, it's often cheaper than restoring an Australian car.
Cheers,

Jesse

CHI makes some very good products. I am using their 3V heads and intake manifold on my engine.
Yes the CHI stuff is pretty good. While we have mostly Cleveland motors in Australian fords (and few windsors), good 4V heads are so expensive and hard to find here now that brand new alloy heads can be had for similar money. I was initially going to buy AFD heads but found out they are now cast in Asia so I wasn't keen on that.
I bought the manifold and 208cc runner 3Vs bare, I just need to take them into the engine shop to get fitted with quality hardware. Then can fit them to the bottom end which is already built. Smiler
Fun times ahead!
