A mate of mine from school was running round in a shortened Transit van with a mid mounted 360 Mopar IIRC..

It had been done fairly roughly from memory, I remember thinking if it was done properly I would have been so keen cos it looked the business from 5 metres away..


One of the choice shaped ones like this..

Yikes. Your uncle's name isn't Jed is it?

If so: the last time I saw that van it was dark brown (in marine paint).
