Do a search for "V8 Powered"

I kind of like the V8 powered chain saw, that took two people to lift.

This is kind of cool too. A Ford Cortina with a 351 stuffed in it.

I needed a good laugh today.

I always loved the shape of the Shelby Cobra. Those things would look cool even if they couldn't go fast. I think he started building them with 429s eventually.

Never heard of them. They have a cool mid-engine kit though


Too bad they didn't do a GT40 though

Jeez, the Stud Hoss version has a 502 cubic inch engine. I wonder if that's a Cadillac engine.

350HP Chevette
http://tunertrader.vidiac.com/video/...c6012fa68f.htm


I used to have a magazine with a Chevette that had a 454 stuffed in it. I was sort of looking for that. Here's one, but it's not the same one:

I once saw a guy build a race car, a Spitfire, with a Buick 215 and twin turbos. The thing was a pig in the corners, but in a straight line, OMG! Look out, because that thing could move.

I have heard of, but not seen, old style VW Beetles with small block V8s in them.

And motorcycles. Haven't seen them either.

Back in the day, it was common to stuff a 289 Mustang engine in a Sunbeam Alpine. You had to lift the engine to change the spark plugs.

There was a guy in my neighborhood who reportedly wedged a 351 Cleveland into a Maverick!

I used to own a 79 Pontiac Sunbird with a factory 305 V8. It was a bit of a dog, but a set of headers and a 4-barrel fixed that.

GM put out some 350 V8 Monzas in the mid 70s. I bet they were a handful. I once saw a Vega with a super-hot small block do a burnout and twist the unibody so bad that the front left tire wouldn't touch the ground.

Kugel Komponants has a kit to put a Mustang V8 in a Focus.Bolt in, no less.

That's my kind of overkill.

On the other hand, bigger is not always better. GM engineers put together a Chevette with a Buick 4L V6 that wiped up the track with stock Corvettes of the day. Needless to say, it never made production.

There were factory Sunbeam Alpine's with the Ford 289, they were called Sunbeam Tigers. In fact Carroll Shelby was behind the Sunbeam Tiger.

Of course the most famous Shelby small British car/V8 combo was the AC Cobra. The most vicious version of the Cobra was the 427 equipped model. An interesting fact about the 427's is that a lot of those cars actually came with a 428. There was a strike during the time period the 427's were built and Ford ran out of 427's and unable to build more at the time the 428 was substituted.

How about a 426 hemi in a Plymouth Arrow? That is a big engine in a small car.
