    I am hoping to get all the body modifications done by winter and have it painted by spring. Hopefully will be running for next summer. I wanna do a .30 bore and mild cam with the dual carb setup. Keep up the great work Cody!

    So its time for another monday update. first off were still playing around with the motor getting everything dialed in , i found out from an email from jalopyrama mike that my 12 port head was actually his at one point in time and he is the one who got it from brazil,. then sold it and yea i eventually ended up with it , i have another movie to post when i get a chance , also i installed the sound deadner to the entire floor, got the back of the doors painted and started on the custom horn ring .

    Wow, you're getting close. I can't wait to see the finished product. I love the six banger, it's definitely unique. My 58 has the original 348 in it which i though was unique until i was looking under the hood of every 58-64 at Back to the 50's this year. 9 out of 10 cars had a W motor with a tri-power plopped on top. I might just keep the single 4 for that reason.

    What's the estimated finish date of the wagon?

    Yah it's getting there , I can't wait to see the finished product as well, yah that kinda suck when you go to a show thinking you'd be the only one and everyone you see has the same thing :eek: most likely by the end of the year , I still haven't sent my intake off to the chromer , and there 12-14 week turnaround so yah some time around the end of the year I'm hoping
