Mike Cool from Piketon Ohio sends in
pictures of his sweet 1950 CJ3A. Mike has this to say about his CJ3A project

The 283 Chevy was built by Shell racing
Engines and will produce over 450hp with the help of a little NOS.
M21 Muncie 4 speed with Advanced Adapters

The rear end is a Dana 44 with Detroit
