That's the motor setting in back of the frame. For no bigger than that motor is it's like picking up a large rock. Whew!

It does have carpet and a headliner now. I also have power brakes (under the floor) and a set of gauges in it (mounted under the edge of the original dash).

It is not pretty, but it is a blast to drive.
I was not aware we were posting pictures. Since the first post I have added a vacuum resivour (under the cab), a console (sits on the seat), new to me tires, shocks, and mirrors. The new mirrors are not in this pic:



Here they are:

I think all those smaller vans from that era are cool.

The econoline and D-100 (?) were similar in a lot of ways.

I've got a house addition to finish first, that won't be done until the end of the year. Then I've got some choices: build a boat, or build a car (first! hope to eventually do both).

Boat: probably a Bolger "Sneakeasy" with a few minor mods (http://www.alaska.net/~fritzf/Boats/...Sneakeasy.htm). Considering adapting a small inboard to it. Maybe a 500cc water cooled Honda V-twin bike motor, shaft drive. That would be interesting (it's a light boat, 24' long but only 4' wide... I intend to increase beam to at least 4' 6" though).

Car: Stuck between a lot of work on a 62 Rambler American (61-63 look the same) or less work on a 65 American. Both are two door post sedans. Either will be a roadster, most likely powered by a Ford 2.3L turbo engine with T-5 I've got from a Merkur XR4ti, will use the IRS also. Lately, however, I've been considering selling the Merkur engine and turboing the old Rambler flat-head six... Not as much power, but would be real big on "cool factor", and quite economical. The 196 flat-head was rated at 90 hp, 7-10psi would increase power to a more respectable 135-150, which is probably the limit, but it would have LOTS of low speed torque!!

For the 62 I've always wanted to section about 3" out of it all the way around to lower the beltline, remove the roof leaving the windshield frame and vent windows, and weld the doors shut, filling the seams and leaving the roll-up windows in the doors only. Roll bar will be rectangular tubing or a twin tube bar, welded into the chassis to make up for lack of roof. No opening doors, so no worries about a front brace bar blocking them!

I've had the 62 for a while, but recently got a 65. The 65 wheelbase is within about 1/2" of the Merkur. For that one I'd take the roof off and build the roll cage, but might leave the doors opening. In the latest "Rod and Custom" there's a drawing of a Falcon with the T-bird hard tonneau cover. Thinking that would be the way to go with the newer 65. Could weld the doors shut and move the cowl back a few inches, and even section it a couple inches, but if I'm doing all that may as well do the 62. I think the older styling would look cooler with the l;owered beltline and welded doors. If I do the 65 it will be because less work is involved, except for the tonneau cover.
