Default Hello from New Mexico

I have been working on cars since I was 8 or 9 years old when I got my first go-kart. Took the engine out of the lawn mower...my first engine swap.
I have no brand loyalties or types. I like anything with wheel and and an engine.

I own muscle cars, a Ford, Chevy, Dodge and AMC. I also have 2 Studebakers, a 1950 Champion Street Rod which was my first car the one I drove to high school. It has a 400 Chevy, 700R4, Fatman front clip and Mustang II, Leather uphostery etc. I also have a 54 Stude pick-up that belonged to my wife's grandfather. Nice rusty patina...body work is done on it. I plan on putting in a 454 and convert the front end to disk brakes and keep the stock front axle, 10 bolt 3.73 posi rear.

My latest project is a 1951 Ford F1 body "Seattle Engineering Dept #96" on both doors. I am still gathering parts for it. Chevy 250 6 power I'll use the 350TH I have laying around. Minneapolis Moline Tractor grille shell, AC tractor gas tank and a 64 Chevy bed a friend told me to haul away. I am sure I'll lots of question before I'm done with this one

The AMX is my favorite also. I've had that car since 1975.

Default 51 Ford Truck

Here are some more photos of my next project. Its a 51 Ford Pickup cab that I plan on making a "Bobber" truck. I have a Minnie Mo tractor grille and an AC grille and an AC tractor gas tank and a bed from a 64 Chevy. I think I prefer the Minne Mo grille. I also have a Chevy 250 inliner for power. It will have an Offy 3X1 manifold with home made exhaust pipies. I will use a 2"x3" frame with kick ups both front and rear. Cab will be chopped 4" and channeled over the frame real low. I haven't decided if I want to do a suicide front end or a Model A crossmember. I have 2 10 bolts laying around that needs to go in something.

Any suggestions on what type of front end and what carbs to use would be appreciated.

My 1968 Mustang Fastback too.
