Gauge looks like 1970's Medallion auto gauge.
I believe that skinny whites were first around in 60-61 on Corvairs.
We did it last year in 3 weeks. We left Texas and started in Chicago. Chicago to Amarillo is the best part of the trip. All those states keep up...
If I remember correctly, that is the drain for the Overdrive unit. It's just a plug. OD & gearbox have separate levels.
Great! Renewed a lot of memories. Thanks HRP.
I like it just like it is! The firewall reflects light into under hood area and makes the engine show up well.
It's not necessary to move the bed. All that would have to be done is to add a piece of metal with 90's on either edge and attach to bed fore and...
If that differential is original to the Mustang, it should be a bolt-in.
I agree, 1947-first series 1955 GM trucks look awkward when chopped. When I was a kid in the 50's every other pickup was one of these in Texas...
I love it! You nailed the look of late 50's. I remember cars like that in the little books of the day, and a lot more like your unpainted version...
I found this to be a help:
Scroll down to page 82 & 83
Fordbarn loaded, Garagejournal did not.
They have a Facebook page. That might be a good (public) place to contact him.
Back in the day, there was another plus for flex hoses. They had wire inside and didn't collapse like smooth hoses.
If it's newly painted, parts on one by one. If its to be done after installation and you have the help, do the front clip.
Lid looks a lot like 61-63 Pontiac console lids.
Agree that it sounds like fuel bowl is leaking or your accelerator pump isn't working. I've had leather pumps that I had to prime carb. first...
Wasn't there a dist-drive and a generator-drive version tach that were calibrated differently?
Be sure that your tailpipes exit past the rear bumper so the fumes are not sucked back into the cabin.
Thank you so much for posting these pics. I really appreciate what you have done to brighten our day!
I started feeling like a kid again while...
Today's fuel, vapor lock. Try adding 3-5 gallons of AV-gas (101LL) to your tank when you top it off. That cured my problem. Vapor lock is worse on...
Take your existing wheel and measure it's back spacing.
You are running a 400 harmonic balancer, aren't you? Balancer and flex plate should match.
I've seen this happen to many 383's because of engine...
I had a 55 with OD and replaced with a non-OD out of a 56 after losing the transmission. Direct replacement, same length. Maybe I was just lucky,...

We used to do like hotrodA said, but added talc powder to inside of dry tire first. It really is necessary to use a tube that won't fold. Try...

Bleed farthest wheel from master cylinder first, closest wheel last. That should get all the air out.
