I do not either. I am in the local V8 club here, and love all early Fords...although my heart is in early hot rods. But I know a lot of guys on here are strict restorers and I can appricate that. The last thing I want to do is get kicked off of here or not be welcome. Even being rodded a little, my cars are still all early Ford

A nice looking car especially with the fenders on. Nice stance.

Yes, that would have been a good idea had I thought about it. Plus I was doing it myself which was a struggle. The rear fenders are pretty easy. The fronts, hard to tuck them into place by yourself without something rubbing

Love it! Really needs red wheels all around with the grey primer which looks outstanding.

Here you go. I just had the dash nickled (it was very old, poor chrome when I got the car) and I bought an NOS speedometer. The upholstery is old and not a good color...I will re-do it down the road. Engine is a 59AB with a Merc crank. Trans is a 39 and rear is the stock 34 that has 35-36 3.54 gears I machined for it. It has juice brakes.

It looks like you have a 46 steering wheel too. Nice interior.

Less stressful that way.

Chris...What is that front bumper? A little hard to see detail in the light, but I think I really like it. The car is off the charts!! It just could not sit any better...tires and caps are perfect. DD

Thanks you! Bumper is a 1941 Ford Super Deluxe. The bumper of choice way back when. I have one for the rear as well
