Buick 300 fits under stock CB hood!

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. Terry Seneker's new toy is a chrome bumper MGB, complete with the CB crossmember (he might change that ;-) and has an aluminum head Buick 300 tucked in nicely. It uses stock MG motor mounts (also likely to be changed) and a drop base Edelbrock air cleaner to tuck it all under the stock hood with adequate clearance. The original cross brace is even still there. The intake is OEM and the carb is one of the Edelbrock versions.

Terry bought this car nearly complete and I don't know who built it, but Kudos to them for a job well done.

Jim

Yes it does.

I didn't take any pictures but I'm sure someone did.

Not sure why I didn't take an engine shot (busy helping Terry with his oil consumption), but I did get a pic of the oil pan to crossmember clearance.
