In other news, 292 is tore down and checked to see if it's been bored out and it's bored to .060 over and the only machine shop I could get a hold of is closed while the owner is out getting chemo treatment so I'm on the hunt for another engine. Fortunately for me, my buddy knows where a complete 56 ford f250 is so we'll go see if we can make a deal. Anyhow, here's a few pictures of the stuff we've collected and the worst cylinders of the 292.

Ford front end assembly. Will end up converting it to disc brakes and splitting the bones.



And the essex body. Pretty good shape for a 100 year old vehicle.




Yeah, rust in cylinders is a crime.










Anyhow, that's it for today. Have to remember to call the guy on the quarters this afternoon.

Woohoo!!! Went and visited the guy I got my 33 from today and told him I was looking for some quarters to turn the essex into a coupe so he took me back and showed me a pretty trashed model a. It's only got one door, no dash, no fuel tank on the cowl, and no decklid but the quarters are in great shape. So we struck a deal on the whole thing. Waited for the woman to get home, told her about the deal and it looks like we'll be picking it up on friday. Little by little we'll have enough parts to build a car.

So we went and picked up the coupe today. She's really mangled but heck, all we're using are the quarters anyway. I'm not convinced it's model a but who cares right? Anyway, pictures of it in the bed of my truck. I'll unload it after I get some space cleared in the shop. A few different projects going on at once lately.

I'm with Skip. Moving the cowl back to the rear doors. Easy. Suicide doors too.

Nice to see another Essex build. That cowl and vent are cool.

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.

Thanks skip. I was thinking sport coupe with the rear like that but wasn't too sure. Either way, it'll make for a good donor.
