So Iím waiting on engine parts. Front suspension parts. So I messed with this. Have all the gauges and knobs. Itís a ford dash but not sure what it came out of. Found it setting in the back of an old Chevy at my buddyís wrecking yard. Think itís gonna look cool.
Seems like Iím kinda skipping around but hopefully itíll all come together soon.

53-54 Ford Car. Very nice. Changing the dash is a nice custom touch.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Cool build! I like the Chevelle hood top filler idea...my '26 Dodge Bros coupe had a Ramcharger hood panel for filler.

We don't care if you skip or dance in a tutu as long as you're enjoying yourself.

Some progress no pics cause well cleaning engine block and piston prep isn’t very exciting stuff. Did some intake and exhaust gasket matching to try to get these old mopars to breathe a little better. Heads at the machine shop for valve job new seals and valve springs for this motha thumper. More to come. Have a great week.....

Havenít figured out if I wanna leave the cowl vents or fill em in. Maybe put a copper ring around them with some plex glass . Gonna have all windows in car cause our weather sucks.
