    Drove our Y block 49 in slime green 14 years. Then the reconstruction as usual took longer and got more involved with a subtle haircut in the mix. Its my wife’s car so she made the decisions , can I have an automatic “yes dear” can I have power steering “yes dear” can I paint it denim blue “yes dear” . We upgraded the suspension so now it actually has suspension travel and is no longer 1” or less from the bump stops, and it rides very nice .

  9. Here is a picture of my'49 coupe. Another 6 cylinder. Making it's Bonneville debut next week. Ran out of time and had to give it a flat black driveway paint job. Hope to get a picture of the engine this weekend. IMG_0121.JPG

    Here';s my '51. I've had it since 1987. It has a '51 Merc engine with Edmunds heads, a Rochester 2GC, a Mallory dual point distributor, and a set of Fenton headers.

    EDIT : I have since changed the air cleaners to something better. They were all I had at the time. Seemed to work, though.

    In the grocery store parking lot today. I just installed a big fat 4-core radiator and I’m testing it around town. 6B8A4833-743F-4959-9966-F99E65E4AA6D.jpeg So far so good. Outside temp is 110, and the flathead never got above 190. Big improvement.

    Here’s my ‘50....pretty stock...more Fordbarn than HAMB. My grandfather and I restored it 24 years ago (I was in high school). Holds a very special place in my heart...actually started my car addiction.

    and my vision for the future, after the gas tank has been flushed,gas lines blown out,carburetor rebuilt, brakes checked out then I will buy some new wheels & tires. HRP

    Thanks guys! That pic is a little decieving, it needs a good bodyguy to smooth out the rough edges, but it will do just fine for now.
