Use a description of the article in your search rather than the magazine name.

Never found an index. The SR articles I've sought and found online are/were all on the hotrod website now. I searched using "Street Rodder" with some details (especially with names) from the desired article and have found most of them.

I subscribed to SR for 10-15 years until I got tired of articles that were nothing more than product placement by their advertisers. If I recall correctly, they had one issue a year with an article index.

I couldn't even give them away so they went to recycle.

Default What I did and why.

THANKS for the additional search ideas which did turn up some new information on early hemi engines but not the Street Rodder article I remembered reading. What I finally did after realizing the Street Rodder index was a fantasy was to search ďstreet rodderĒ +Ēearly hemiĒ on eBay. That search made me realize there were at least 7 articles covering early hemi engines in 1996 so I found someone selling the full 96 year for $20 and clicked the BUY button. There should be some good information within, regardlessÖÖ.. Iíve pissed $$$ away on worst stuff.

The WHY. Some of you know I built a BBC powered Bantam coupe after coming home from Vietnam. I sold it in less than 2 years to finance going into the collision business. Then maybe 25 years ago I located and purchased another Bantam coupe body. For years Iíve been telling people if I ever built the second coupe it was going to be powered by an early hemi because thatís the engine most old racers used when drag racing them. So just last week I purchased someoneís 392 engine project. Who knows if my health will hold out long enough for me to ever get to it but itís the reason for my sudden interest in early hemi information . ~ John Buchtenkirch

I had to laf. I did the same in '65 only with a bantam roadster. Sold it for much the same reason. Two years ago found another (new) body to hang on the wall. But....

Yes, for sure. I enjoy peopleís comments, good & even bad, it helps to keep me from overlooking something. But donít hold your breath, Iíve got a ton on my plate right now. I was pretty much back on my 33 three window project full time and had maybe 75 to 100 photos ready to post. Then mom passed on memorial day of all days, so now Iím deep into converting her house into rentals. At 72 I just donít know how much longer I will be able to work or if I will even want to. But you canít find early hemi engines (especially the 392) on a momentís notice anymore so Iíve got the correct engine now, the correct body and even if I only end up keeping the Bantam project for some younger builder down the roadÖÖÖ well, thatís okay as well . ~ John Buchtenkirch

Looks like a pretty serious race car from back in the day. What time and mph did it run ?? Got any action photos ? My Bantam weighed 1960 lbs. with a steel coupe body so Iím guessing your car weighed under 1600 lbs. ? Thanks for posting. ~ John Buchtenkirch

It weighed 1100 pounds on a truck scale. At that time it was weight to cu. in. Only one pass with no time before the money evaporated. The guy I sold it to put in a small block and won a lot. The frame was all gas welded chrome moly.
