    There is about a year since I started on it. Had some distractions(another 36 cabriolet!) along the way but this is about the discussed time frame. What it not so apparent is that it had no engine or trans or driveshaft or this or that in the first picture.

    Heres my car when I first got it two years ago:
    1941 Ford Tudor-Exterior 003.JPG
    It had a very tired flathead in it that due to budgeting I could not get rebuilt. It is the stock 221.

    I mostly worked on the firewall, trying to get it cleaned up. It looks better in the picture than in person.
    Before:

    After:
    1941 Ford Tudor_Engine Bay 12.JPG
    I picked up a 226 H-series flathead for cheap.

    Got it cleaned up and installed.

    Did a little painting.

    And here it is now. This was at a local car show.

    I still have a lot to do, but at least it's driving good now. I am in the process of a front disc conversion. Then I need to install the door glass and weather stripping. After that it will be the rear windows.

    started with a stock Morris and now a little past this point as I have the rear end in now and the hood and fenders welded together and the body in primer sealer, but did 3 other vehicles for other people in the mean time. 1960  morris minor.png 20170513_132731 (1).jpg
