Well, the "current" roject is to get my 64 Ford to the point where it will move under it's own power (need to get a radiator ordered in the next week or 2). There are some of in in my journal.
After I can get that out of the shop the 76 Dodge "True Spirit" (factory 440) will come in to get built as my old shop truck is on it's last legs.
Once those are out of the way the 37 Dodge truck comes back into the shop (it's trhu mock up and needs to taken apart and go though the paint and body thing.
I got a little burned out on the last one I put together and have been slacking a bit.
The last project is shown here.........

Here's what I'm building at the moment. Just finished the rolling chassis this week. 2x3 tube frame, F-150 twin I-Beam front suspension with traverse mounted quarter elliptical springs front and rear (cut down from F-150 semi-elliptical rear springs). Dana 44 rear, 302 Ford with 3 speed tranny.
Hopefully the body fabrication will begin next week. I'm going for a sedan/delivery style but downsized from stock. Also, rear axle moved outboard. Here's a sketch of what I'm shooting for.

I've been slacking off some and need to get started again. I got the engine in over the winter and finally got the Holley back from my carb guy. I discovered that I need to get the exhaust run before I mount the fuel filter and bend up the hard lines. It's easier to get the fuel lines out of the way than the pipes.
