Here is the factory electric motor on the '56 firewall. Not only is it right in the middle and in plain view, it also limits clearance for a large body distributor like an HEI. Since this car is being built as a resto-mod, we would rather have a nice and clean, uncluttered firewall, so this will be tossed and the hole filled. See the "Filling The Hole" sidebar for more info on that process.
