01-14-2008 08:04 PM Test Fit of "new" Engine
I just had to see what it would look like. Set the block on a couple pieces of angle iron laid across the chassis. Set the heads, intake & exhaust manifolds, distributor, carb & air cleaner in place. Lowered the body back down to the chassis to be sure I had engine as far forward as necessary.

Plenty of room & I really love the look of that little 283 sitting there. Looks like it will fit perfectly (after I replace the left-side exhaust manifold). Now to find the tranny to go with it........

More photos - various stages of work. I even had to build the shop before I could so anything.

I wanted something that few others have. I thought I had that until I was driving home one day and two miles from my house I saw a '36 Hudson Terraplane 4-Door Sedan. Out here in the middle of nowhere New Mexico, what are the odds.

OK, Guys, here's mine. Definitely a work in progress. Lots of metal reshaping to be done, some (but not really very much) rust to fix. I'm not wanting a tire-smoking fire-breather - just something that will get me down the road smoothly, efficiently, reliably, and economically (both during and after project completion)
I'm putting in an '84 Ford 3.8 V6 & AT, and Front suspension from a '76 Toyota pickup and the rear end from an '81 Toyota pickup (both inexpensive and fit almost exactly).
This is my first project of this magnitude so I'll take any and all advice, suggestions, and criticisms y'all want to throw my way.
