There's hope for my 52 V8 flathead yet

That's great news for my 52. It was parked for just over twenty years when I picked it up. Just changed out the oil and converted the sump/oil type air filter to a dry filter. We hope to start her up in the next couple of weeks.

Probably the coolest thread I have seen here. And it's not even about my FAVORITE subject Old ford TRUCKS! That wagon just plain rules the show.

Way cool story and very nice woody. I have to agree with keeping the patina, I wouldn't change a thing either.

Enjoy!
