first tech question


I have a 1932 Ford 4 door model B (for more info see my introduction: Yep another newbie in the forum! )

I'm in the process of building mine rolling chassis with the following parts:

1932 original frame (bead blasted and painted)
390 FE Ford with a C6 (from a mid-sixties fairline wagon)
9" axle (from a mid-sixties fairline wagon)
Heidts IFS

Actualy I'm getting afraid that the 390 will give me a serious headache with clearance problems, as I cannot seem to find any 32's with a 390 engine, So my questions is can it be done ? (with a closed hood and the engine under the hood and not in the car, if u know what i mean ..)

Could someone please ease my mind ? and tell me what I should keep in mind ?

Tom McMullen's 32 originally had a Chevy in it but it was replaced with a big block Ford. It had hood panels on it, so I guess it fit. I don't know about the firewall if it had to be moved. Perhaps someone else will know that. Here is a link to a site with the car in it. You will have to scroll down quite aways to find it. Enjoy the various other 32's along the way.
