    Here is my 41 Tudor.
    The V8 Flatty that was in it needed too much work. I found a very nice 226 straight 6 flathead that will go in it. Just a few more parts to get and I can put it back in

    I'm gonna go get this in a couple days. Another old car for another old man. I'll keep it stock as I can, maybe it'll be a daily driver:

    I've been working on this 54 Star Chief for almost a year now.. I've put a 55 Pontiac 287 in it. Still a lot to do.

    Pontiac - Your car seems to be very solid and complete. Noticed the rear vent wing windows. Love it!

I have built my own frame, and now the complete body sit all together on it. I installed a mock up 350sbc with a 200r4 in it, till my 327 is back from being machined. I made my own headers. I have the complete front suspension & steering hooked up to the steering wheel. I used a F1 box connected to the oem column. I have a 9" apart on my bench waiting for gears, and to be shorten & ladder bar & shock brackets welded on.

    I didn't realize how similar the front ends are on both your car & my 59 Dodge Coronet.
    But yet the back are VERY different. What engine does your have?? Mine has the original 326 w/ the push button tranny.

    I've owned this 63 Falcon a few times and every time I get it back it's further apart. Narrowly escaped a Mustang II frontend this time. Going to put suspension and rear under it, glass and interior back in and sell it out of the area. Tired of working on it even though every time I've made money. Decent little car, still has nice original floor pans.

  19. It was a 313 three on the tree but I got it with no engine or trans. The front end are the same, your car is the same as my 59 custom royal.[​IMG]

    Thanks! It's originally an Oklahoma car so it's held up very well.

    This thing. 28 A chassis/running gear, home-made speedster(?) body, gas tank made from a pawn shop air tank. Not much compared to some of the stuff on this thread, but it's been fun to work on. IMAG1054.jpg

    My current WIP. 1962 F100 Short bed unibody. Have a big window section to put in. 390 8V, probably getting an AOD behind it to work with the 4.11 gears. Industrial Chassis IFS and 4 bar coilover rear. Modified the front inner fenders so they are mirror images of each other. Tomorrow morning I order my 1932 chassis from Pete and Jake to start a new adventure!
