Walter House's Ranchero "Shaker" is an original big block XL Fairlane car with a .030 over 390 mill with Cobra Jet heads and exhaust manifolds; Police Interceptor intake with 735 cfm CJ carb sitting on top. Roller rockers are used with a lumpy cam. Transmission is a C-6 with some magic done to it and it drives the 3.70's out back. Walt says "The 'Shaker' came from a Mustang. It limits my options as to intake manifolds I can use, but it adds character, it's different and like most, it's a work in progress."
