Someone needs this. Would be perfect for a Black Widow tribute.
So with the weather finally warming up around here, I was able to get back on the El Camino. I installed the starter harness, battery cables...
1949, 1950, 1951 Ford Shop Manual. Nice condition.
Dennis Carpenter sells the ‘39 side trim.
So to bring closure to this, and maybe help someone in the future, the conversion is done.
I ended up picking up a booster and master cylinder...
I also pulled the strap holding the power steering pump and it looks like the brackets on the pump are for a W Block so will get that bolted in...
Is there supposed to be a bracket here that the pedal mounting studs screw into?
I also dropped the heater core and control valve off at the local rad shop yesterday. They pressure tested it for me. Core is fine, heater control...

The dash is out. Went much easier than I was expecting. Seeing as there wasn’t a thread I could find on how to remove it, maybe this will help...
Thanks. So maybe this six cylinder one will work.

When in Alberta I’m just outside of Edmonton.
Looks like a great project! I did pick up a 4 door parts car up here in Alberta that I’m just about done picking off what I wanted to. If there...
Not sure if you’re still looking, but this showed up on St. Louis Craigslist on the week-end. Looks like a solid car....
