Mark Plunkett's '29 Ford
Coupe from "Down Under"
I'm from Melbourne Australia,
and have been an Inliners member (#1318) for over 10 years. At times
I've been the only Australian member.
The car will be painted
"Washington Blue". I've been the lucky recipient of some hop up gear
from Tom Finn Sr. to help me build a good strong carburated engine as
well as a blower set-up, which was given to me by a good friend.
The '29 coupe is all pre- '48 Ford except for
the important bits - the engine and trans. It
has a stock '57 235 at present - but I have a blower set-up for it and a tri
carb setup for the 261 I'll build up for it. There's a '37 Packard tranny in
it as well.
