so today i worked on interor painting and chassis too .

also misc parts needed to be black '

seams one of the original color options for this car was white and black so went with that . going to add a few silver trim parts too

here i added a few details . still need the silver trim around the front seats

and the engine bay got painted gold on the inside and the frame rails too . i hope it will give a great contrast to the rusty body .

also sourced a straight axle for the front from a 41 Lincoln . will be painted gold too and mounted with hi-jacker suspension

OHH and not to forget i gave it a Name .... its now the MerceNary Merc . thought that was clever ..

ahh finally got some time to get back to it .

painted the engine parts

decided to go with the original ford block and heads and just fit the intake manifold and other parts from the Chevy to it .

went together pretty good

and a few gold parts for the bottom . its hi jacker suspension and a straight axle from a 41 Lincoln . and the rearend  and ladder bars

got the floor painted and started assembly of the interrior and enginebay

and engine ready just missing the wiring and the ´4 barrel,s

test fit

interrior ready too

time to figure out the headers i want them short and sticking out the fenders in front like ive seen on many gassers so had to make room for them

and bend the headers to right angle  with heat

and then installed the rear-end . just needs ladder bars still

also got the windows in the body .

to be continued
