Default Did someone say Shoebox?

Here's my '51. Has some issues, major one being ugly. Runs great with a 302/C4 combo from a Mustang GT. Stops great, rides like a chuckwagon. Gonna swap the front springs this week for somw Aerostar van springs. Need some stuff for it. None of the guages work. I need the speedo to work. Want the fuel level, temp and oil psi to work. I'll get it. The doors need some serious help. I think I'll just buy new hinges. The hood apparently flew up at one point or another. It fits like hell. The grille is missing. I'll make one. Other than that, my girls (wife and two daughters) love it. Jenny has put more miles on it than I have!
BTW...the flames are long gone. Looks like my 3 yr old did them.
