Cool Customs and Mods

The Blackhawk was one of the cars that GM sent to the 2005 ROA meet in Eureka Springs, AR.  A couple of lucky ROA members got to drive to and from the trailer each da it was loaded and unloaded. I wasn't  one of the lucky one.  It was a real treat to be able to get up close and admire the concept and workmanship. In the Wikipedia article in the link, it states the car was a 1948 Roadmaster. That is wrong. It was a 1939 Roadmaster.

According to the specs board, it’s a 226 with Inglese Fuel Induction. 

Not a nailhead then. 264,322,364,401, & 425.  Can’t think of a way to come up with 226 cubes.  Google search comes up with a couple of 226 cubic inch engines. Both are straight 6s, one from an old Willis pickup and the other is from a Ford truck.  
 

This engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet ZZ6 bored and stroked to 383 cubic inches. Belongs to Fred Defalco and is named Jaded.  Lots of information available by Googling “1964 Buick Jaded”. One of the Great 8 at the 2021 Detroit Auto show.
