    Havnt done anything to it in 3 yrs cause We moved and built a new garage and shop.
    I finished it up and gave it back to My older brother. Long story. He gave Me His gutted 50 Merc 4 door. I have a new built 500 cad motor and a 9' rear for it. I did this motor for Him about 8 yrs ago.
    Anyway the Ford turned out pretty nice I think.
    My Son and I chopped it. Search (thanksgiving day chop) Then My buddie Terry and Me painted it (Joan Crawford come fuck Me lipstick Red) with LOTS of red flake.
    I did the interior Myself. Stainless door trims are 49 Merc front fender side trims.
    All the inside trims and dash I painted m/f red.
    I frenched the tail lights. Cut the centers out of the stock lens so as to keep the 2 bullets at the end.
    53 olds grill I welded the ford ends to it.(still needs a little finish and chrome).
    New 289 I built with world product heads - comp cam -weind intake and blockhugger headers with 2 1/2" mandrel bent exhaust I also made out to the rear bumpers.
    I made the channels for the rear side windows using the stock regulators so they roll all the way down. Also all new window fuzzie tracks in the front doors.

    SO I HOPE HE DRIVES THE WHEELS OFF IT. If You see it around the Fresno area say
    Hi His name is Dennis. FEDER
