    35 ford wires and firestone blackwalls installed and I gotta say it looks pretty badass! Now we have a hot rod , dual carbs on and offy intake for the mercury flathead

About 25 years ago , he has some of the history on it . Says the original owner owned a meat company on 38th /flower here in Los Angeles , hopefully I can get more details . Now I see why the front fenders were primed black

    Thought yours looks so rad that it fired me up to get mine out of the garage after a couple years B1E84F19-ED29-4DBB-A950-556D35EAE64A.jpeg Can’t go wrong with big and littles on a full fender A :)

    It's easy to post a video on here, you need to load the video on youtube.com and then post the link on here!

    Yeah it makes it look like you can post videos like photos but you can’t. Gotta host them via YouTube or the like

    Cool looking car. But keep an eye on those front wishbone mounts where they are welded to the frame. The frame rail material might not be strong enough to handle the forces that are going to be passed to it and might start to crack just outside the welds. My 32 coupe had the mounts attached to just the lower flange and they cracked a lot.

    Nice! Looks like your parked next to Bugs’ roadster. Lots of details in that one
