New Build Ideas!


Recommended Posts

We have a 1949 ford truck that my grandpa drove in highschool. Its in almost perfect cosmetic shape. It has a 413 mercury and a 4 spd push button trans. We were looking at doing an LS swap into it when business gets slow in the winter. I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of anything like it being done.

Thanks for the input and if this topic isn't welcome feel free to delete/move.

Matt* puts a 6.0 LSX in all of his restorations, so yeah it's been done a lot, he's already got one for the 57 Bel Air and his friend Aaron has one in his ol' Firebird too


But I don't think i've ever seen one in a 49 ford truck. We would probably have to go with a built ls1. We have ls1 parts everywhere from that TA.
