There are occasionaly codes on the rear its self. But if you go under and look at what kinda carrier you have, it should give you a better Idea... if all round lookin with no bolts thats 8 3/4, and I'd bet the gears are highway tall... prolly 2.76. The burnout is hard to do with them tall gears, and lo po, but basically all it say is wether you got the sure grip or the peg leg.

Sjack, if you do the propane conversion, Take pics of how that all comes together, I'd be interested to say the least.

Lots of companies had belts as optional P.

Also could be dealer installed, or later owner installed.

Cars werent REQUIRED to have seat belts if built before june of 66, but that doesnt mean they weren't available.

PLus you figure its a higher end car, so its gonna have the extras.

BIG BLOCK... those Pics are freakin sweet. Really cool style. Gonna be a mean machine when your done I'm sure!

"Chrysler produced their first engines with hemispherically-shaped combustion chambers in the 1951, but these early motors (301, 331, 354, and 392 cu. in.) share nothing in common with the 426
except for spark plug location and basic valve train arrangement. These
"old style" hemis were primarily passenger-car motors, although later versions did power
the legendary Crysler 300 "letter cars" until 1958. Chrysler referred
to these engines as the "Red Ram", "Firedome" and "Firepower" motors
throughout their production. Horsepower peaked in 1958 with a 2-4bbl
version of the 392 rated at 390 hp. Today, these motors are difficult
to find, and those which aren't in restored vehicles are most often
found in fuel dragsters and funny cars, running on alcohol...."

thats from

i also highly reccomend this one quit interesting where you can see a V16 Hemi for the XP-47 Thunderbolt...

"The inverted V-16 was conservatively rated at 2,500 horsepower, and
Chrysler has always been known for under rating their engines.
For testing, a P-47 Thunderbolt was selected. Introduced in 1943,
the P-47 was the largest and heaviest single seater in the Air Force
inventory at the time. It was powered by a huge 2,800 cubic inch radial
engine that developed 2,300 horsepower. It gave the 40 foot wing span
If you read further it says estimates put the engine at 3,500 hp!

it is harder to get propane around here... and while gas is expensive, I'll stick with it till theres none left.

Still however it is a really cool endeavor that you took up, and I like the thinking and planning that went behind it. Your 22ish vapor gallons is yielding way more mileage than my gasoline gallons... by almost about a 100 miles.

Also must be nice to not get stopped by a bubblegum machine everytime you put your foot in it.

Those doughnuts are rippin man!

What kinda distance do you get on a full tank of propane... i assume with multiple tanks they all feed together. you must get miles like crazy.

Well,  I LIKE IT!

Where/How do you fill the tank? open the trunk or did you adapt something for behind the plate?

Its nice to be able to stretch out on your hood!

Propane must be workin' good since your running nice at the track!
