    Tell us more! I'm 6 months away from starting on my '30 and it will also take a substantial amount of time. Yours looks great!

    Thanks for all the good comments.
    It is an original Ford body, new 32 frame, Brookville shell and grill. Original 28 front axle dropped 4" and drilled. 40 Ford front brakes and Buick drums. Ford 306" rebuilt motor with Ford 94 carbs. Mid's 60's Offy dual plane intake, Old Edelbrock valve covers, C4 transmission and 9" rear end. Ford in a Ford.

    No it is Scurio Grigio, or medium Gray. It is a PPG Ferrari color without the metal flake added.

    Got to drive it today! Wahoo!! A few more things to fiddle with. Holley94's were leaking like sieve. Put old working Carter AFB on it and it works just fine. Been a while but worth the wait.
