History
Purchased the car July 2016, very solid very little rust. This is my first project car, spent the last 35 years working and raising kids; now that the 'working' is done and the kids have moved on with their own careers I finally have the time and money to start a new hobby.

Special thanks to my brother master car builder Paul Hattrup, except for my small contributions here and there, 100% of the suspension fabrication, welding, painting, engine rebuild, rewiring the entire car along with all of the other things to numerous to list, without Paul, a build of this level never would be possible.

Modifications

Drivetrain
When I bought the car the hope was that the engine would be fresh, it was thought to be around 5k miles. Milage appeared to be correct but the last owner ran oil without zink in an engine with a flat tappet camshaft; five rounded off cam lobes and an engine full of metal shavings.

Freshly rebuilt small block with a Comp Cams flat tappet cam, Brodix aluminum heads, Edelbrock Performer 600 CFM, Edelbrock Mechanical Water Pump, 63-64 Corvette cast iron exhaust manifolds and a 700R4 overdrive transmission. Quick Performance Ford 9", 3.40 gears.
DynoMax Mufflers.
Interior
Took floor to bare metal, no rust, POR15 and Dynamat.
Ididit tilt column.
Shiftworks gauge conversion set.
Vintage Sun ST-502 tachometer.
SRP Mini-Kooler a/c unit.
RetroSound stereo with 4 Rockford Fosgate speakers.
Morris Classic Concepts shoulder belts mounted in the factory mount.
Exterior
The only exterior modifications I have planed are to ditch the cowl hood and go back to a stock flat hood.
The other two cars, 1954 Chevy pick up and 1941 Ford Business Coupe belong to two of my older brothers, the brother with the 1941 Ford is responsible for all of the fabrication on the front end, wiring and engine rebuild. I also have a younger brother with a concourse level 1970 440 6pack Cuda.
