  2. Fact is they had their eye on a 40 woody and I helped them buy that. ;)

  3. First one I've seen like that too. Just a bleed off type as the originals were, I will probably get rid of it to clean up the engine bay when I swap. Worthless things anyway.

    Sweet ride! I agree, the 39 Deluxe is the better looking Ford!

    Magnificent! The builder showed great taste and class. Done just right!
    I'm thinking you'll never want to sell it.

    Can you sneak a dropped axle, some reversed main leafs, and some big and little rubber on there too?

    No, no no. He`s got it all wrong. Lower the rear a bit and add skirts.

    Unbelievable car!!! WOW! I'd like to know how the ignition coil is mounted, especially any detailed pics of the bracket and how it mounts to the engine please if possible.

    Loving the colour, depending on the light, it could be either black or green.
    Beautiful car.
