I ran across this ford at a service station last week. the owner and builder is from Tallasee Alabama. It represents 5 years of work. Hood was off as he was tunnig the engine on the drive.



Though it was worth sharing.

That's a beaut. There are two similar 39's here that I regularly drool over.

Almost bought a 47 Chev panel a couple of weeks ago, but the wife caught me. She said no more till I get my Fiero finished.

Nice one, Coy! If you see the owner again ask him if he knows any good sources for parts.

Songman, He runs a body shop in Tallassee about 12 miles from here. Anything specific you need. I can easily contact him. I also know where an identical car is that has a forsale sign on it. It needs a total restoration (read rusty with no glass). It's about 18 miles north of here, I have no idea what they are asking, but could check, my projects runneth over.

Coy, I've got a 1940 Ford two-door Sedan de Luxe just like that one that I got when I was 15. It was rebuilt in the 60s by my mother's now ex-husband. He put an overhead valve Mercury V8 in place of the flathead, complete with wooden motor mounts! He had to cut the fender well on the passenger side because the alternator sticks out in front of the front wheel, and he had to cut the firewall because of the huge bellhousing that mates the Hurst Old 4-speed to the Merc block! Strange combo huh?!?

I'm like you and have way too many projects already but have always said that I will rebuild this car someday. Just having another car to pull from or a good source of parts would be helpful. If you're ever out that way and want to see what they want for the complete car. The fact that it is still sitting there probably means the price is too high.

One thing for sure that I could use is a trunk lid. Mine got backed into and mashed in...

I appreciate it..

Songman I'll check the bodyshop in Tallasse tomorrow afternoon and get contact info for you. I want to get some interior shots to post. I stopped him leaving the station and we only spoke for a min. I bet he knows every part in 100 miles of here though. I,ll be by the the one for sale later this week.
