inner city kid 1977 hearse project
- I am working on a 1977 Cad. Hearse with a 425 motor and looking for
advice and ides. I am a leader for a group that is working with
inner city kids to help them out of the bad areas and give them a
good outlet. What we are doing is creating a death to life motife
with the hearse. I am looking for ideas for motor upgrades and
performance. The plans are are to make it a show car also. We are
working with donations only as the Cad. was a donation also. Thank
- It's good to hear someone is out there doing something positive for
our kids. You have my respect!
As far as your project goes, I would say the sky is the limit,
depending on how much $$$$$$$$ you have to spend. But, I'm sure your
aware of that already. The 425 has potential but you could easily
swap it out for a 472 or a 500 cid (BIG CUBES = mwwwwaaaaaa!!!). Let
me suggest posting your engine concerns on the MTS messageboard
~~http://www.hwforums.com/2089/~~. There are a few guys on the
messageboard with similiar projects as yours, so I'm sure they would
be more than willing to help. Also, MTS offers/sells everything you
need to (re)build your 425, 472 or 500 along with all the generous
advice you might expect!
MTS' website is www.500cid.com
Thanks for the info. Any help is welcomed. I will keep you updated
with the progress. The car was started today, it has set up for over
two years. we are working with donations. The kids are willing.
