Gonna take some messing around to get the mechanical fuel pump fit up
Cool. That has to be one of the hardest chops to get right of any around. I've got a feeling that there going to be a lot of saved photos of this chop for future reference.
Got the motor cleaned up and painted for the coupe
Nice! Great color!
Trans mounted up
My dad had a 47 Merc back in the old days. He bought it brand new and had it all souped up. He said it developed a miss and he could never get that miss out of the engine. He bought a new Flathead from the dealer and put a mag in it and finally he got the performance he wanted. He said then that damn Olds/Caddy OHV came out and it was over..
I've always thought those '41 grilles looked goofy but man it sure looks good on your build. I also thought the you could have widened the rear window by four or six inches but never the less the whole car has great lines and execution! Thanks for some of the visual tips.
I hope you're going to put some washers under the heads of the bolts of the engine mounts...
Widen the tempered glass backlight?
Hahaha you funny
Those are bolts acting as alignment pins
The real bolts will come up from below as they are stock Ford motor mounts, but you knew that
Thanks for your guidance
Well widening the rear window/replacing the rear window... besides with your skills widening the rear tempered glass would not surprise me!
Finally got the trunk floor seam sealed and under coated. gas tank in for good next
Don’t forget to put a row of louvers on each skirt!
Already painted, sorry
Gas tank ready to go in
Ready to stab the rearend
Great shot Rite there!!
Back on all fours
I just tumbled onto this thread. Nice work you are doing!! Car looks great!
Gettin closer to firing
Looks good, but it appears that you're missing 2 or more of the Rochesters on top of that little fire breather. That one looks lonely.
Hahaha I’ll keep the hood shut so no one can see my pitiful induction system
