View Full Version : 4 Bangers

:) Is anyone using 4 bangers for their projects? I was looking to build a speedster or lakes modified, and my donor car is a '87 Volvo. I'm building a daily driver, so I'm looking for fuel mileage, the V-8 will come later. Any pictures would help. :)

I was thinking about using a 4 cylinder, a Ford 2300. The same motor used in Pintos, Mustangs, Rangers, Thunderbirds etc. My donor would have been a Thunderbird Turbo Coup. But then I found a really low mile F-150, with a really rusted body and frame at a price to good to pass up.

I think A Volvo powered bucket would be cool (and reliable). A pair of side draft carbs and a custom header...
