BigB's RCR MKIV

Well, I decided to pull the trigger last year on an RCR MKIV (Thanks Fran). It found it's way on a truck this week and hoping to see it arrive sometime this coming week.

The plans:
  • 482 Keith Craft built, all aluminum Shelby block, with stage II heads (being built now)...That should be sufficient.
  • 930 transaxle (no burnouts, but should be plenty stout)
  • Red with meatballs/racing stripes/swooshes on side
  • Right hand drive
Lots of work ahead of me! (last picture is what I hope to end up with)

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Thanks fellas, I'll definately post a bunch of pics.

I forgot to mention that my wife says she's going to get her hands dirty on this project! << WOW! She's the detail person in the family, so that will work out nicely.

Ron McCall, I'm in Washington State.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Yes....because she want to work on it with you. That is awesome. Hell it's a freakin turn on. I would dig it. However, I probably wouldn't get as much done if you know what I mean (at least on the car :-)

Well, she arrived a few days ago...Lots of work ahead!

I LOVE the welds on the aluminum. Beautiful craftsmanship. Thanks Fran.
