As most of you know I have had the 29-9 Magnum,i of 5 built ...only one left which came out of Ohio,Thumper Too 73-77,and Head Hunter 78-79.It went to the west coast and stayed in Palm Desert for the past 30 years. Brought it Illinois,and now it is in Naples Fl. with Roger Munn who is rebuilding the original 427 raised deck stroked to 482 .It has a 4.25 bore & 4.25 stroke,and is 60 over.It originally had dual Holley's and then they went to fuel injection. We will bring it back to a single dominator,and bow tie heads.Have found a new 427 tall deck manifold,and the correct Thunderbolt ignition.If things go well will see it run next week in Florida.
I will finishing stripping hardware and original gages which will be rebuilt and plan on painting it Tangerine and white,original colors,this fall.We need to fabricate a new hatch, and re do all original hardware.Plan on keeping original steering,crash box and # 3 drives and then bring back to Illinois to do the rigging with Brian. Hopefully a year from now it will be ready for it's first test ride. Bud
