      It's a '55 0.030 over 331.

        Sweet. I love that you painted the Caddy mill in 55 colours. Looks like Alberta Blue to me, but Studerich will correct me if I'm wrong (lol).

          Thanks. Your '55 looked the same as mine when you got it, only mine had no motor..

            Well, mine had been run dry of oil, torque converter exploded, frozen and hit on the left front corner. Still worth every minute and better bang for the buck than a new car. I'd love the hear the Cadillac motor wind out.

                  Speedway still offers the Offenhauser carb hats in a period correct, low profile, to clear the hood.

                          Very nicely done!! This would be a great car for the "Day 2" display at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals.

                            Love the very purposeful look of the Blackwalls and lack of side trim. It looks just like a '50's era muscle car ought to look! Me like.
