77 Mustang II Ghia Part V

Vinyl top on but no windows front and back, but he had to drive it, it got the better of him, so he cruised over to my shop. The color shift on the doors is gonna bug him till winter when I bet he fixes it.

Rusty Crusty 2

After a few hours of grinding the screw heads off of the old screws used to hold down the old patch work, 3 layers thick and not a welded patch in the bunch.

I trimmed away the most severe cancer to get to somewhat better metal.

Still have a lot of cleaning and trimming, but here is where it is to date.

Rusty Crusty............It Begins

1953 Henry J Corsair, it's rusty, it's crusty, and since 1974 when I seen my first one all jacked up with big tires I have wanted one. It only took 45yrs, but I got one.

First order of business fix the rockers and floor, make it strong enough to remove from the frame so frame work can begin.

After I got the doors off here is what I started with, old patches on top of old patches, on top of old patches.

Pony's future and a new stable mate to keep her company.

Maybe late summer-fall, I just finished making the throttle plate, filter tops, and bases.

I picked up a new stable mate for the Little Pony, will probably get started a little bit at a time with winter being the work season.

1953 Henry J Corsair.

76 Pinto over winter VI

Spring is close now and a few warm days got me really motivated, so I made the pieces for an overflow tank and Mike welded them up for me.

Needed a better cooling system so I added a larger (thicker) radiator, went to aluminum instead of copper/brass. I have to cut out the top cross radiator brace to fit the new radiator in and keep it away from the water pump, hence the fabbed brace. I found a gilmer drive for the 302 so I figured I would give it a try, can't hardly see it. It doesn't whine, or if it does the timing gear drive is much louder so I don't notice it.

Had to add some tunes, so like the 80's the speakers went across the back window. I did break era correct on the sub woofer and amp, but it sounds so much better with it.

77 Mustang II Ghia Part II

Mike got the scoop fitted and the hole cut, however the usual underside edge is not and easy dress up.

The answer he went with was basically a cover, or frame to hide the cut edge, looks good to me.

A little prime.

 The fenders, hood, doors got a new color.
