Really pleased with how things are coming together, once the mechanical things are done then its time for the interior . Hope to have it similar to Dirty Dan's 36 with a deep tan color leather/vinyl style. Thanks for the continued help with my dumb questions!

Carbs are 94's, rebuilt by Charlie NY on the forum fuel pump too. Intake is a Hexagon tool from Dearborn Michigan, Ford was thinking about racing at Indy and they made the intake. Racing program didnt work out though....Always get attention at shows, "hey..your carbs are facing the wrong way" lol

Well, after two weeks of no start a good friend, neighbor stopped over. He said lets check for good grounds, sure enough the wire from the coil was not crimped right by me. Re do and presto the car started up and ran great. I had replaced the coil and was about to replace the MBI module and he showed up. Guess the big guy upstairs was tired of me complaining about the car not running! lol...
