  1. Hey everyone, my name is Austin. I was referred over from and will be looking through all the threads and asking a whole lot of questions as I’m new to these types of cars. Looking forward to all the upcoming work and will post up projects as I go along.

    You should join up with the 1952-59 Ford Social Group we have been around here on the H.A.M.B. over ten years and we have a HUGE help file put together by our members that covers just about everything you might want to do with that '54.

    Congratulations! A true sleeper, very underrated by many.

    A twin to my first car in '60, 6 cyl std, Glacier Blue. The best balanced/handling car I ever drove on the tires available back in the day. Great drift car on snow covered roads long before drifting was recognized as a sport by today's tuner types. Great gas mileage and ran same-same with my cousin's 55 Chevy 2 dr post 6 std in our back road drags among the tobacco barns. Ran the snot out of it until it rusted out from in under me in the Fall of '66 while I was in the Hooligan Navy. Replaced it with another '54 that the PO had built with a 352, 'nuther story.

    Keep the updates coming, I'll be watching with great interest and memories.

  9. Thank you all for your replies. I will keep you all updated. Currently the brakes need to be redone. I looked at upgrading to discs and a power set up but I do have most of the stuff to replace the stock set up right now which I may do for now and look to upgrade later.
