Been playing with real stuff lately. On my coffee break while installing a 4bbl manifold to the old "Surf Rat" and snapped this pic. Have a great Saturday guys.

I don't what the "Surf Rat" is but that looks like an old Y-block. And I see a hood latch at the rear of the engine compartment.......

Yup, it's a '58 Ford wagon and the engine is a 390 FE motor. Got her all buttoned up again this afternoon including the new 4bbl manifold and Edelbrock 650 carb but the water neck leaks and got the timing off by one tooth. Runs but my back hurts and time for some wine and then bed. Back at the salt mine tomorrow!

Incidentally, here is the wagon at Salem Speed Shop on Friday afternoon where I had to pick up a 1" riser from Glenn.

Wood is coming soon as I get the basics working like heat and wipers, wet carpet and... etc.

Here is a quick proposal for the wood siding that I like.

That engine looks like it's in great shape, J. I like it blue and with the wood panels, whenever you get around to doing it. Drink more coffee! LOL!

I think the wood paneling in the original drawing looks better.....
