|37ford4dr||thanks guys......all the body bolts are in, I had to use some contact cement on the lock washer and the nut for the front radiator duct panel body bolts....playing gumby at almost 59 with those front body bolts was challenging.....|

I just want to know how you restored those two transmissions into a carpeted spare tire?

some before and afters

the body weighs about 375 lbs so its not too heavy the saw horse and jack stands looked scarier then it actually is
well my three week push to get the body on the chassis has come to a happy end....time to take a break for a little while and recharge the batteries
today i put most of the body bolts in , the gas tank is in and i got the brake master cylinder bracketry/pedals and MC in that is a PITA.

|Loose Ctrl||Great update.It's all coming together.It won't be long until that first drive around the block happens.|

breathing a big sigh of relief I'll bet. One thing that I noticed with the body hung over the chassi, that chassi is very close to an apron fender style. It seems they didn't move very far from the TD when the car car was designed. Beautiful resto imho

Now you can breathe easier.
Well done it looks a treat.
I hope your young Quality Inspector approved.

the body is on but not bolted on.
two of us about 2 hours, no lifting used the floor jacks the entire time, treated the M/C like a brake caliper, no real issues
lifting lowering the back i put two bolts in the bolt holes that were long enough that when the body came down it helped align it
treated MC like a brake caliper
removed all jacks under saw horses
slowly lowered went from front to back
last spot before we could use the smaller floor jack in the back
you can see the alignment tools sticking up to help get things lined up right
front extension install
and the first drive
and measuring up from the floor the front tires openings are exactly the same height and the rear tires openings are 1/16 off....not bad

dropped gastank, removed 1/4 scuttle, unbolted M/C, took down storage bunk beds, put body on stands slipped car underneath. two of us and a long frame car jack
not tall enough

I think the real issue is that they are so opposite to our type carbs it takes a little while to make friends with them. and once you do life is good, really quite simple compared to a quadrajet .
