Ever since I was in high school I wanted a Flathead V8, anything would do I just thought they were cool. This was the late '70s and most my age didn't even know what they were but I had my eye on a 1940 Ford pickup that could be had for $2500 and in real good shape with a "Hot" Flatty. Well, I just couldn't sell my MGB fast enough to get the money (still have the MG BTW) so the truck went away and I moved on to other things. A few years back I built a 59A for a friend that was going to put it in a '41 Merc but then decided to go with a 302. So now I'm stuck with an engine and nothing to put it in. I thought about it for my Sedan but that had to have a Y-Block. After dressing it up a little at a time over the years I have finally decided to build a car around it. I don't have much yet but it's starting. With the help of Derrek Boling we dug up a '27 T Roadster body, I will use a Boling Bros. frame, I have a "banjo" rear from a '41 Merc wagon that I will use a home made QC built by Mike Moore in OR with an enclosed drive line. Things are moving along now so I will have more to share in the coming months. The one that got away so many years ago. Mock up to show stance. Engine and rear. All together so far with the lovely Kyra driving.
