Default Bought 40 Ford cpe w/Desoto hemi

I couldn't resist buying this car. Thanks to help from this site, I now know it has a 1955 Desoto Firedome 291 ci engine with 185 HP. Started today easily and steady at 50 lbs oil pressure but I'm sure it will drop after warming up. It was done long ago and is a tight fit. I was asked to post pics regarding the fit so y'all can see the tolerances. Everything clears but not by much in some places. As for the future, I'm pretty confident I'll have to upgrade from the present 1 gal gas tank that's visible on the passenger side under the dash. It has 39 Ford trans and 4.11 40 rearend.

Another "opportunity!"

Enjoy, Al
