It's powered by a 1948, 100 Horse Power Flathead Ford V8 that has been stroked, ported and relieved. The cylinders are bored out to 3 3/8 inch. Back then, they didn't have (or couldn't afford) an off-the-shelf stroker kits. Dad took a '49-'53 Mercury crank shaft which had 2.499 inch throws and turned the inside of the throws down to 1.999 inch's. Then he used connecting rods from an 85 HP flathead to connect everything together. All together he made a Hot Rod Motor with a 4 1/8 inch stroke. We rebuilt this one the same way.
Miss Chicken also has a 1939 three speed transmission, rear end and front end. The drive shaft is enclosed. The tires are 4 ply bias tries.
