Pulled the backseat today, and cleaned/painted up to the front buckets. Gradually working my way forward. While they were out I dyed the backseat and the armrests. The front buckets will be getting new black naugahyde too.

Finished bracket for Ford steering box and mounted box. Fabricated a pair of upper front shock brackets. Tack welded to frame. Installed front axle and steering linkage.. spindle stop hits shock lower eye. so moved shock brackets to ahead of axle,

Everything looks like it will work now. Ground some more rust off one frame rail. Is now ready for primer. Epoxy from Summit came today. They are fast. Ordered it last night and It's setting on the porch today!!

Doctor says I can return to work. So it'll be a few days till I get back to Stud-a-baker..

I installed a B&M holeshot a couple weeks ago in my th400 I,have had it about a year but never opened box until I got ready to install when I slid it in transmission,i rotated it to engage the pump ,it slid to far back and hits the transmission case and locks down ,will not turn, I called B&m they said it was out of warranty and could not replace it even though it was a factory defect ,so I replaced it with a TCI converter and shift kit ,it fits fine ,just thought you might want to know.

Thanks. I don't use B&M stuff due to previous problems..

I have had good luck with a private brand from my wholesaler.. They didn't have a 4000 convertor in stock. end of last year ,as their entire inventory was low for tax inventory. I'll try them again when it's time to set the engine trans in the chassis.

Love the '59 Lark gasser Bob! Reminds me of Dave Koffel's old Flinstone Flyer gasser! But your post about shocks just made a light go on for me! I still haven't built and installed anything on my front axle for shocks!!! I better look into that tomorrow!

yes. That was the inspiration for the build. Loved the car and his old Packard also. Used to see it at Detroit Dragway back in the day.

When I was 15, I bought a 60 Lark. It had a local fast car history and a room full of trophies. Originally a Paxton blown Stude engine then a small block Chevy. I bought the body, less engine ,trans and installed a nailhead Buick. Tons of fun! Blue and white candy stripe metalflake Nauga Hyde interior/ It's a shame all them Nauga's had to die!!

Dave's Packard was amazing! I never understood how such a big heavy car could go so quickly!
Kinda funny how we're reliving our youth now! My first gasser was in 1968, a '57 Chevy. Then replaced by a '55 Chevy gasser a couple years later. Now after building the Austin gasser I realised how much I missedd those cars of my youth, so had to build another gasser!
