    Wish there was a unhood pic, hood suggests it might have a turbo on it. Turbo flat head would be interesting.

    In a world of ls swaps, I never thought I'd see a turbo flat head in a fox. Cool!

    Cool looking car and I like the building with what he had mentality.

    For those who weren’t around or weren’t paying attention when ol grandpa was talking about the flat head builds.... the thing that makes flat heads so ideal for boosted applications is the size of their combustion area relative to the displacement and the plug position. What’s bad for compression is great for massive amounts of air/fuel!

    The direct linkage nature of the valves makes them very capable when it comes to RPM also. That’s why the old rails used to use them with a huge blower.... For the time there was no better way to make big power. Now they have a cool factor and can still make huge boosted numbers at rev to the moon R’s. Neat ol motors.
