As I started to drive this around a little bit I started hearing a knock. It got noisier as I put the miles on it.
I dropped the pan to take a look and totally lucked out. Had a dent in the oil pan that was getting dinged.

Rainy day so I started cleaning this grill up.

So onto some miserable work.

Always there to lend a hand….

As long as all this junk is getting wired up might as well make it look purty.

Image

Image

Made some new gaskets…

Image

Cleaned up nice!

Image

Image

Took her out for some fresh air…

Came a cross a deal where I had to haul this heap home, I only wanted the tires but he wouldn't sell them alone.
Spent a saturday parting all the junk out, tires are gonna be perfect though. Worth the time.

never left the garage...

Okay, the seats were a problem from day one. The car only came with a rear seat.
Later I picked up a ford bench seat. The time came to cover them which was
expensive as hell and once I got the old covers off the springs were in questionable
shape. A buddy happened to have a full set of 66 mustang seats with covers he never
installed. So, I tore a part a few old bar stools for their swivels and turned the buckets
into captains seats. I think a console up front and some armrests in the back will make the
set work.

Thanks Dana, They are Mustang seats and they came with NOS covers.
However, I truly appreciate and will take you up on the offer on the
model A bench seat.

Haven't been on for a while. She is coming on well. You sure are a wiz with stencils. BTW, those pipes look great!
