    Have had some truamatic things happen the last 6 weeks and my out has always been to change cars for a mind fix . I had to sell a rare one to get this , and a deal has been worked on my replacement , the deposit has been sent so should have it in possession soon , road trip .

    Its a 37 Ford Coupe with the original flatty that is said to run . I would like to learn what I should look for and anything I should check before I juice it and turn it over . I dont think its been sittng to long since its last run but some more info will be found out when i pick it up . I know i need to lube up cylinders before turning it over maybe a little Marvel there for safety .

    I'm really stoked since i have always loved the mid 30's Ford car's specially the rears and the rumbles . This may even mean moving my 31 sedan on to some one else but its not set up Hamb friendly .

    So here is a pic of the engine only mark i see on the head is the word Ford .I know it should be the 221 at 60 hp but not for sure yet .
