Ernie's 17 year gig

EB 39 FordPosted by Don Dillard Sun, January 06, 2013 18:39:43

Ernie built this truck himself over a 17 year period. He just got it going recently and brought it into the shop for a gear change. The small block Ford and C4 combo was singing pretty good at freeway speeds with the 4.27 cogs in the Jag rear end. We swapped them out for a set of 3.08 spicer gears and now he can enjoy the tunes as he cruises down the highway in independently suspended comfort. You can read more about it in the December 2012 issue of NSRA's Streescene magazine on page 54.
