    Pretty cool, those are some serious calf burners though.

    It has a .030 over 427, square port steel heads, hyd roller, right now it has an 850 holley DP on it but I also have a TR with 2 600's. Explorer rear end, 3.55 gear, trans is a 350 turbo with Coan internals. Exhaust is temporary, I'm going to run it underneath this winter. We are having a Cruise In the 31 so I figured I'd throw 2 bucket seats in and drive it there. I'll attempt to do the interior this winter. The vin plate came this morning and the sheriff inspection is tomorrow. I shortened the fiberglass grille shell 4 inches and made the insert out of 2 pieces of screen I found, since I had to use 2 pieces I spot welded it up the middle and stuck it in my break to v the center. I cut a piece of 7/16 stainless tubing length ways and welded a couple studs on the back side to hide were I welded it. I was aiming for something in the 60's, dents, dings and all.

    This is one of the seats I got for it and the color the interior is going to be.

    I'm a "dye in the wool" Ford guy, but these early Mopars (pre'37) are really starting to grow on me.

    That's a great looking Hot Rod !!!
