    thats one nice engine you got. And that red is breath taking
     
  21. just keeps gettin better !
     
  22. A mechanical Pygmalion transformation! Way to go. You had me faked out in an earlier pic when you laid a Y-block valve cover on the engine. I was thinking, "Did Ford have yet another Y-block oddity -- this time in New Zealand, with a front mount distributor, no less?

    Also, it seems you're one of the few NZers who has a T-Bucket that does not have the distinctly NZ fiberglass bucket cowl. (What's the story on that anyway?)

    Really a great looking car. Thanks for the updates.

    VERY well done!
     
  26. There were two types of fibreglass T Bucket bodies available in NZ. One was like a conventional and normal T and the other was a made up one that has very flat sides and square type cowl.

    Aaron, the T is looking great man!
     
  27. Great looking T. Love the B/C valve covers for that historical Kiwi look. :cool:
