  5. My ‘40 in 1968 after one of several sbc’s motors went bad. I didn’t own it then, but when I got it in 2014 there had not been a motor in it since that picture. Notice the right windshield post of a 66 mustang. 0BF4ECEE-E606-48AA-8B07-3E94BE0839E1.jpeg

    I bet this coupe could tell some stories.

    Here's a pic from last Saturday of @Lakeside65's sedan and my '40 stake truck out at the Wommack Mill, in Fair Grove, MO. We had just finished up with his stance adjustment, with reversed eyes on front and back and a dropped axle up front. 276301555_10225759943733063_1157942939414726641_n.jpg
    A better view of the adjusted stance. I believe he told me he's running 165/80r15's on some '50 Merc wheels up front and some 225/75r15's out back on some OEM 6" wheels.

    He got the axle and spindles from Nostalgia Sid and the rear main leaf from @100% Matt

    Man, that picture is as cool as the flip side of a pillow :cool:
    That is correct on the wheels and tire size! The stake truck and sedan sure look good together. I’m hoping they see some miles together soon! Thanks again for your knowledge and help on the sedan, without it I’d probably still be dreaming instead of driving

    Believe this is Bert Melody's from New York
    [​IMG]

    Never seen this picture before but the hood scoop and wire wheels along with the channel, dropped running boards, sectioned cowl and hood and raised front fenders are features on his 40. Ran a Cadillac with a blower IIRC.
    Anybody know where it is today?

    Love to see pics like this one. This was the trend when I got into the car thing.
