Its Done : My SS 3.2 in 71 shell

Hi I finally have my SS 3.2 back and in the car. It is still being run in with only 200 miles done since the full rebuild, in fact the entire car has been done.

It is a real “early car” sleeper being built around a 71T shell with no external mods.. more pics to follow.

Motor is a SS 3.2, running Andial S cams, 46 PMOS, 10.3:1 CR new barrels and pistons, boat tailed, mooned, 3.2 oil pump and cooler lines, early SSI exhaust, crank fire ignition.......rebuilt late 915 box with 3.2 cooler and new LSD 40%.

It is still being driven conservatively, but it has lots and lots of power. It just keeps on pulling and sounds fantastic. The S cams are no longer “Peaky” but are progressive and begin to power almost as soon as you hit the pedal. Rolling road/ dyno stats next week.

This car has been 4-5 years in making… I am happy

There are still a few bits to finish, but here are a few more. Car is a factory silver LHD 71T that I bought in Alaska (I know.. Alaska) but the shell was very good. Suspension is late 3.2, with new 21/27 torsion bars and late carrera anti roll bars (20/21mm). Standard interior with a few bling bits here and there. Deeps 6s on the front and 7Rs on the rear. It grips like crazy and just a few more 100 miles running in before we set it up properly and see what it can do. :shock:

Hi all,

A freind popped over today in his 67 S, so I managed to snap a few more pics. I still have a few things to finish off, but still managed to go out for a quick spin. :lol:
