Hi Folks,

First, a big thanks to all that have commented. I really do appreciate the kind words from you all.

Next up on this project is the engine block and transaxle. For the 1969 race, this car was outfitted with a 302 Ford motor with Gurney Westlake heads.

Here is a pic of the engine without the 'bundle of snakes' exhaust..



Here is a photo of the Gurney heads and the water manifolds...





Going to be using styrene for the drivetrain.....












the sparkplugs are not set into their holes all the way in this pic...



next up is the ZF transaxle.....

Ref. pic of a replica that is still made today...



The special bell housing used..


clutch slave unit...



Built up with RB Motion nuts and bolts...
