You can't tell much from pictures but came with a 1955 Desoto 291 ci Hemi w/39 box and 40rear end.
It still had the hemi but I changed trans to 5 spd from S10 and used CE rear kit to install 8" Ford rearend.
Another one I still miss!!
The engine. Ran GREAT!! Was a ball to drive with the 5 speed!
It appears that eight pages of people enjoyed THIS thread.
And since THIS is a traditional hot rod site, hasn't all of THIS been done before?
So what? yeah, so what? I didn't say this thread was a bad idea. I was pointing out that there is another thread, and probably more. Have fun!
After the wreck rebuild. After 22 cans of red and black rattle can satin valspar. 6 months of body work and a REAL black paint job. Then some Ed Crews hand painted lettering. Now if I can just finish the new motor.
