Nice to see a straight 6 in a while. Did you think of converting it to RHD?

How surprising! It's a beauty of a six (luv those pipes!) with 3 Webers. Very nice and the wheels look absolutely right.

Thanks guys.

Al, because no one would expect it. When I rebuilt this old glue bomb I was trying out different V8s instead of the expected FE big block, when I remembered this resin 6. Sat it in the engine bay and the rest is history.

Chris, I did think about RHD. When I was researching the 2V head I found out that a lot of them have wound up in the US. Also found out that there is an alloy head cast in Aus as well, most of there customers are from the US. This was back in 07/08 so I don't know if their still in buisiness.

That 300 cubic inch (4.9 litter) inline 6 cylinder is very popular with the guys that drag race the inline class. It makes a lot of torque and will make 500 Horse power all motor.
