Valiants Big Block AP5

3 posts in this topic

OK so love it or hate it here it is.

The whole thing went a bit more OCD than I first intended...

What it is.

1964 Valiant AP5.

I draged it out of a garage about 2002 it was push button auto, brush painted and had a seized 225.

Now.

383 b series big block.

comp xe268 cam

906 heads

Performer rpm intake

780 holley

etc

727 Torqueflight

9inch ford diff with 3.0/1 open diff.

Some other stuff too.

I need to do a few things before its fully finished

Mainly a better rear ratio with a spool/LSD

It gets a bit warm in traffic

Bit of panel work needs sorting.

I'm sick of spending money on it at the moment so it will have to wait.

This has been sitting in my shed since August 2011, it's time to get it useable.

First off I want it to run on LPG.

Second is to sort out it's overheating issues.

Third if I can afford it is a LSD centre.

So this is what I have:

425 Impco gas carb, model E converter and the throttle plates off a 600 cfm Holley carb.

The Gas carb bolts straight onto the Holley throttle plates. It all clears the under side of the bonnet too which I am very pleased about.

I have this tank too, It's good and big it has separate valve locations which is good for flow.

The garage got full of smoke at one stage too.
