I admit I had to look it up, because I'd never seen it before. It looks like a depiction of Ford's Indycar V8 from the 60s, with its distinctive exhaust out the top and intake ports between the cams.

What's that race car looking one in the Japanese box second from the top?

I spit my coffee out over this.

That kit has 2 engines, one is the pushrod Weslake Eagle on a ford small block, and the other is what slowbird says, the Ford Indy engine that was first run in a Lotus chassis. An entirely in house Ford project, very rare engine.

I will gladly take the Raptor. It will be my first Ford product since the 80s Capri racecar I did in highschool. Miller High Life I think? Should I PM you my address?

Oh man, sorry I flaked on finishing for this one guys. Everyone killed it and really went above and beyond on the motor swaps! Terrific work!

Like everyone else I found life getting in the way of the model cars; plus here in Minnesota it's summer and generally speaking model cars are a winter hobby for myself. 


I'm staying tuned for the next round though, I have a few half-done things languishing I could put finishing touches on.
