looks great ! did the rims.. those carbs are going to be killer.
Wow some nice goodies there.
Have a question about the Nash Ambassador steering box your using. Wondering what years and other makes used this box. Maybe yourself or other readers can pass on some info. Your workmanship is exceptional and I really like how your routing the exhaust.
Can't wait to see the tires mounted on those wheels. Chrome looks great!
Super slow motion video of exhaust...
fifteen is too young, thirty-six is too old, twenty-four is just right.
I remember learning that when I was much younger, and it made sense then. But at this age, 36 looks mighty good too!
I'm with Blues4U , 36 would be awesome.... like those wheels and carbs are.
Your attention to details is just awesome ! Really interesting thread. I can`t wait to see more updates !
We're looking at a gorgeous 89 year old here.
THAT is going to sound AWESOME.
Wonderful things like those awesome headers are the reason why my old ears ring 24-7 lol
Yeah, we're gonna NEED some video of this thing running once it's going. First fire up video would be awesome!
I have a video of when Marshall first fired it up but I have no idea how to load a video on here
Oh, HECK yeah!
It has to be loaded up on a video hosting site, like youtube, and the link shared here. I can do that for you if you can send the video to me.
Check Thunfield hot rods on Facebook for the video.
Well, I found this photo, but no video:
I heard it run , its going to be great ! can't wait to this car finished...nice work on the headers Cody
Nicely shaped header flanges....
Nice headers as everything else on the car.
I’m not a complete box expert . But what I do know is it’s made in 37 by gammer. It’s a larger box then the Nash Lafayette. But the Lafayette has the same style mounting flange . , the Lafayette. Shares the same pitman arm as the early fords of that area , as gammer also made those boxes , as well as the f1 and the Hudson boxes . the ambassador box shares the same pitman arm as the 1-1/2 ton ford trucks
Thanks for the info on the Nash steering box. I plan on visiting one of the vintage wrecking yards in my area next weekend and your info will come in handy. I've been looking for an alternative to the F-1 and reversed Corvair boxes. The exhaust on your coupe looks bad ass.
In case you do a google search its "Gemmer".
3x2 exhaust in a 32 ?

Sweet lookin' headers!
I’m going to run the headers for the shows and for the race of gentlemen this year ,
after all that is done I’ll put the 3x2 manifolds and a full exhaust for the long hauls
Can't wait for the music!
