Re: 8BA block cracked

Mart, I was hoping you’d have a block for Tony as you seem to find them and rebuild them on a kind of regular basis... I’m betting you’ll find one for him!

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

Re: ‘56 Meteor/Ford Body Shell Weight?

Re: Body Weight of a ‘32 5W?

Re: Off topic: Buick woodie wagon

You no doubt know that Buicks were not made by Ford and since this is the "Ford Barn" don't expect this thread to live very long. But while you wait it's demise any pics?
