    Final? Yeah! I bet! Wait till you see the unusual 40 swap I'll post on FB today. You will be lusting to do one, as soon as you read it!

  5. I said final, as this time it is a fresh 350 that just came from the engine builder's break-in stand. After dropping in the 283, 350, back to the 283, and now back to the fresh 350, I'm thinking that this game of musical motors will be done for a while.

    I have the glass in, mounted the fuse panel under the seat (no connections yet) and started installing the fenders. The goal is to have it on the road in May or June

    A few from GNRS. A little stretch with the '39 Mercs, but they were just too nice to not include. IMG_2586.JPG IMG_2607.JPG IMG_2611.JPG IMG_E2589.JPG IMG_E2591.JPG

    Saw this pic taken at the GNRS. You don't see many 40 Fords with a sun visor...

    So would we say this is an early post WW2 (replica) custom? Nice coupe!

  15. And that sun visor would be the first thing that I'd yank off of it and take to a swap meet! ;-P

    Just in case you 40 lovers have not been following Tom Davidson's coverage of the 2018 GNRS here are some great shot's of Tony Millers Convertible and one shot of one of my favorite 39's (owner unknown to me).

    The tail dragger stance and skirts lasted till up in the 50s here in GA and I still like it. Not too crazy about the sun visor though.

  18. Couple of pics from today's adventure.

    Finished up the swap from my worn out 283 to a fresh .060 over 350, went outside the shop to see the coupe covered with snow, decided to "test drive" the stake truck home, the roads were covered with ice. An exciting 23 mile drive!

    ^^^^^^

    If we drove ours here in Northern Michigan, it would be covered with salt!

  20. Yeah, there were a few stretches where the salt trucks had been. I believe that this snow caught the transportation departments by surprise, as it was just supposed to be light flurrys, and usually just blows off the road. They weren't planning for icy conditions.

    You know, back in the 40s&50s when so many roads in the South were dirt if you got off the main roads, the cars got shook to pieces in a few years.
    There was little if any use of road salts, even up North, and "brining" was unheard of, so the best used cars came from up North, as rust wasn't the problem it became later.
    The newspaper ads for used cars in the Atlanta area would often list cars as "clean Northern car", and there even was ine lot that was named "Northern Car Co.".
    Nowadays salt is used down here a lot also, but a lot more roads are paved. And today's new cars, OT here, are claiming to be better protected against road salt. But since I'm seldom up North, I really am unsure if their efforts have been successful.
    All I know is that I stay off the roads with my hot rods till after a good rain when we have had enough snow for the roads to get salted.

    We seem to be kind of low on pictures on this thread lately so I did a little browsing in my files and found a few to post. This coupe was seen in Puyallup Wa. back in 2006. Some may notice that it is very similar to my coupe that was not finished for another 10 years after these photos were taken. Although this is not the car that inspired me to build mine the way I did I can say that it definitely certainly made me want to get going on the project.

    My coupe will someday get a set of these hub caps . I saw this coupe around the Northwest for a few years after I took these photos but I have not seen it lately. The fit and finish on the car was outstanding.

    I went to Oz in 2016 and hooked up with some local Hot Rodders. One of them owned these two beuts, The 38 had a 351 Cleveland in it, and the Delivery had been a push car at Bonneville before being deported... Nice cars and nice people
