I like the part about topping out at 115 and blowing a Red Ram off the road.
Y-blocks make me smile.

I posted it on several Ford Groups on Facebook it has over 200 "likes" and a lot of "shares" nice to see a positive story like his outshine the negativity we see so often.

If you look closely at the under hood shots, even though it looks like a stock '55 272 two barrel engine, it does have later heads on it (no core pugs). I think Gramps was doing some sleeper work since he bought the car new.
Very nice story !
