Iam trying to work out how many cars in Britain have run a 354 hemi powerplant over the years. This includes Hotrods,Slingshots, other dragsters etc. I know a few slingshots have run that engine combination. Also what are the records for these specific vehicles?

IIRC (it was over 40 years ago) Brian Ringsall raced a blown 354 blown hemi in his slingshot "Taxi" - seen in the 3rd photo here.

It wasn't the fastest in its class but even now I recall it was one of the noisiest.

It is featured here photographed in the late 1970s. ... -296/page2
