Feb 27, 2013 update to the Tornado Typhoon project car

The Typhoon has Landed

Our 1958 Tornado Typhoon has been delivered to Eclectic Motorworks , Carl Heideman’s shop that just happens to be located near the seller. Carl says that the car looks great. Soon he’ll mock it together to see if everything is present.

So, what should we use for power? Ours originally came with a side-valve Ford engine, but we admit that it’s a bit pokey. Do we upgrade to a 105E Kent engine?
