Found more about this in volume one, issue 1 of The World of Rods magazine, page 16. Constructed by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff of Escondido 1 800 hot rod5 , owned by Mike Richards of Escondido. The engine is from a 57 T-bird, and looks like its supercharged to me, but the magazine writer didn't mention that.... odd, that's a cool feature!
http://www.hotrodscustomstuff.com/ is the website... and is full of cool stuff, like legislative alerts, galleries of the cars they've put out, and a page of all the magazine cars (a mean lots!) they've had featured.
