A motor like this deserves to be on display for the whole world to see. It has a ton of polished components with the valve covers, alternator, pump, pulleys, Air Raid air topper, and much more. And you’ll love telling people this is a 361 cubic-inch V8, because we rarely get to see Mopar power in a Ford-style hot rod. You’ve even got the right supporting components with a high torque starter, good belts, and a large electric fan. This big block has plenty of power because it inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Plus, those shining headers add even more power while feeding the growling side pipes. Making sure this muscle gets to the ground is Mopar’s strong Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission. You also have the right suspension components, like the reinforced hairpins up front and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers.
