    Agree with those who recommend boxing the frame. Too flexible without it.

    This is a Av8 not a street rod, if you think this needs boxed then you just don’t understand what it is, boxing has its place but not on traditionally built pre 48 style car

    It's perfect except for 2 things....the front needs bug guts and the underside needs road grime. I volunteer my services to add those items to it. ;)

    Couple curious questions......I see the crab type distributor. Did you change out the timing gears from the 49-53 type to the 35-48 type?

    The generator appears to be the 40-48 type that uses a voltage regulator, yet you’re using the fan mount type pulley. Any idea which front bearing is in there? We get asked these questions all the time and I like to see how guys solve those problems.
