Wanted to update the thread....things have changed and I've sold the '50 coupe, building a '63 falcon hardtop now.  I think the car will end up weighing around 2800 with me in it (250 ish  Undecided ), so I'll run a little ballast.  That being the case, I'm gonna start out with an old street 302 build I have sitting around, I don't think there will be any concern of running faster than 7.25 with it, so the weight/cube isn't an issue yet.  I will be building a somewhat high rpm 289 in the future for the car.  I've learned that the record for D/gas is 6.70, but the current 2 fastest cars are 6.98-7.00 and getting faster. 

I'm starting with a 4.86 gear in back, the jerico has  2.60/1.65/1.33/1 gearing.  Thinking I might need to re-evaluate the gearing, especially when it comes time for the higher rpm 289. 

Purchased an old hilborn injection setup a while back, just too cool not to try it, but I'm afraid it'll need to be sold to get the budget back on track.  Will start out running a vic jr and 650 dp on the 302 - boring.
