    Or a 348, but with those carbs I'd expect the larger engine.

    348.......oil dipstick on the pass side, 409 on the driver, but a simple oil pan swap can change one to the other.......so it's hard to tell.

    Very cool ‘32 with an early suicide axle set up for top speed runs.

    Saw this at our local steam & Threshing show this weekend, it's a cool time because of the very old cars and trucks that seem to ooze from the woodwork.

    I think a world of outlaws sprintcar wing would be perfect on that '48 FIAT

    (and some bigger, stickier tires front and rear.)

    A few nice examples I’ve noticed on IG lately

    Awesome A banger, could use a little chop though ...

    I’ve posted this ‘34 before, but it’s got “the look” ! Everything is right about this car.

    I find it lacking... something, but Im not much into show cars anyway.

    from what I gather those FIATs were the car to have back in the A/A dragster era and that would probably be a better style to go with but WOAs are so much more fun. lol just eliminate the transmission and many problems are solved ;-)

    Good for you for trying at least. I hope you find someone.

    I was in a similar situation. Helping a 40-year friend clean up the family property after her Father's passing.

    Found three 24 x 24 x 36 boxes of her Uncle's drag racing trophies, from 1960-61-62. The man was Tearing. It. Up. in Florida, Texas, and a little of Louisiana.
    He was Navy, stationed at Pensacola. He would light out in his '40 Ford, hit the track, usually get First In Class, grab the trophy & high-tail it back to the base.

    Never even bothered to get them engraved. But he would write notes on the bottom of each one.

    He DOMINATED this strip (in his class, running a late-model Flathead). I found at least 20 just from there.

    Contacted the local family, and the Georgia contingent.
    No interest. :(

    So I bought all of 'em, and a bunch of his old speed parts. Sold 'em at swap meets.
    Kept a few.

    Including the 1961 Winter Nationals First In Class. :D [Back then it was run by NASCAR. :eek7 ]
