A small update on my '35 Build

Some of you may not remember me, as about all I do anymore here is lurk (lots of knowledgeable guys here now), but I thought I'd share a few Photo's of how I'm coming along-it's slow going as I can only work on her on Saturdays-nobody seemed to care about my Trunk pictures, so we'll see-if there is no interest in my project, I'll stop posting updates-

Anyway, this is a partial mock-up-the steel front Fenders are finally done, and I filled where the Bumpers would go-turned out o.k. I think. the rear Fenders are from Wescott's, I just bolted them on, and I am very happy with the fit and quality. The running boards are the new Drake ones, and are nicely made. The Grille I'm using is only for mock-up, as I have a new Alumicraft one waiting in the attic-

I ended up buy all new Wilwood brakes, as I needed a Parking Brake and they fit great. Ayway, here are a few pictures-it is up on Jacks, and I didn't stage these pictures, I was just at a new stopping point-

Hopefully these pictures won't come out too big-

Well, the Car was designed to use a BBC and 700R4, but my current thinking is to use the new Edelbrock/Musi 555 BBC (695 hp) and a 4L80E-thanks for asking-

Yea it does take some time and LOTS of money to finish these things huh? I take it you're up north?? I'm in So. Utah just south of Cedar City, still working on my '32 but I changed out the 331sbc/700R4 for a 508" Cad/400T. Your car is looking very nice, the additional photo's by Ireland shows a lot of work on the chassis. Hope you have a couple more sets of rear tires....you're going to need them with that Musi rat motor!!

Yes, I am up in Springville. Sounds like you have the same Tire problem with that Cadillac! Thank you very much for the compliment, I sincerely appreciate it.

As for the engine, I right now have enough parts to build a 496 and a 540, but I think I will be dealing with enough gremlins that I don't want to worry about if I did something wrong while assembling the engine. I think I will go the crate route, and I agonized over the Smeding 572, the GM 572/620 and the Edelbrock/Musi 555. I like what Musi has done with that engine-it has enough vacuum for my Power Brakes, runs a vacuum assist Distributor and has a reasonable idle-exactly what I was looking for-
