Whenever I look at what is obviously supposed to be a "period" sbc, and see block huggers, it just RUINS the entire effect. If you are going to go to the hassle/expense of chroming a generator case, how hard is it to go the extra mile and clone a set of vintage hedmans ^^ or find a decent set of rams horns? HPC coated block huggers just flat out kill the whole deal. And its not even cheaper than hunting up rams horns, its just plain "aw f*ck it, I'm too lazy".

Looks like its in a '56/'57 T-Bird, so that's to clear the hood and still provide a decent amount of filter area. The part right over the carb probably fits up inside the stock t-bird hood scoop, and just behind that the hood flattens out.

Joe Sherman: 383 Chevy and Low-Buck Engine Pioneer Passes On

Written by Marlan Davis on May 15, 2018   
 
The Petersen Publishing Archives, Steve Sherman   -  Photographers;
We’re saddened to report the passing early this year of another hot rodding legend: Joe Sherman of Joe Sherman’s Racing Engines. A long-time hot rodder, drag racer, and engine builder, Sherman was known for making big power numbers on a budget, spending hard-earned dollars on only those parts needed to make an engine go faster. In short: builds by Joe for the average Joe, not millionaires. His no-nonsense engine builds often graced the pages of our many publications. As his son (also a drag racer) Steve Sherman puts it, “Joe never tried to upsell. He never spent unnecessary money. He could make it work on a budget.”

It all began for Joe with his high-school hot rod, a 1959 Chevy 348 that he cruised and raced on the streets of Manhattan Beach, California. By the early 1960s, he’d graduated to a 1963 Dodge with a 426 Max Wedge engine in which he set numerous local track records. His reputation grew as he worked first as a tooling engineer for Garret Air Research, then at Edelbrock. He would remain at Big E for more than 25 years.

In 1967, Joe bought a brand-new Camaro straight off the showroom floor. It turned out to be the ninth Camaro built by GM and it came equipped with the newly developed 350ci-sized Chevy small-block, somewhat of a mystery at the time because the cylinder-heads of that day weren’t really big enough to keep up with the extra cubic inches when an engine was heavily modified (the best heads available at the time were designed for the 1965 327 fuel-injected 1965 Corvettes). Joe’s Camaro served as a testbed for an entirely new type of intake Edelbrock was developing: what would become famous as the dual-carb tunnel-ram.

 The 383 small-block we all know and love today? Thank Joe. As far as it’s known, he fathered the 383 back in the late 1970s, and it would go on to become an overwhelmingly popular combination: stuff a factory 400ci 3.75-inch-stroke small-block crank into a notched-for-clearance 0.030-over 350. Many 400s lived rough lives in pickup trucks, and when they reached the end of their service lives, the siamesed-cylinder blocks were often worn out, but the cranks could be repurposed by turning down the main journals to the smaller 350’s size. Today, a hot-rod 383 can be built out of entry-level aftermarket rotating parts for about the same price as a 350.

After Edelbrock, Joe moved on to work for various aerospace companies, and finally was able to start his own engine building shop in the 1990s. In 2002, Sherman reached the pinnacle of his career, winning Popular Hot Rodding magazine’s inaugural Engine Master Challenge. Right up to the end, he kept on running the shop, building engines, and enjoying life with wife Jenny, four children, and 10 grandchildren. We’ll miss you, Joe.

Joe Sherman campaigning what he billed at the time as the world’s fastest 350 Chevy Camaro at the old Lyons Dragstrip. By the late 1960s, the normally-aspirated 1967 model was running 10.60s at 128 mph. Although primarily known for his work on small-block Chevys, Joe applied his power/dollar magic to just about every engine make, including Chevy 409 engines, Chevy big-blocks, rival small block Fords, Mopars, and even Pontiacs.

Joe Sherman, building horsepower with real hot rodding, the old school way. Godspeed Joe.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

The beautifully detailed Don Brusseau T, I always liked this version better than when he redid it as seen here.
