flat heads look cool,,, thats about it,, how bout a Nail Head or a 348 chev maybe a Early Hemi (354ish i think) they are all real cool looking motors and you can make a lot more power,, But if u need hot rod that flat head let me know, I know a fella in Manitoba that has a custom Flat Head shop [36]

Wicked Car by the way We are building a 29 sedan

yep , not 100% decided on the flat head.
I will consider all motors, but its gotta look real cool!!!
Might just put the 327 i have in for now.

not much and when modified to make power they have big overheating problems

They run forever, look incredibly cool and I don't think many motors sound so good running straight pipes than a well tuned flatty. [36]

that does sound pretty nasty

Kinda like a ferrari with straight pipes, heard one of those in LA a week ago

I concur, flatheads are a sweet engine, my first engine rebuild was on a 51' flat-head. Revolutionary design back in the day, and make decent power when tuned right.
