Finally pulled the engine and tranny. It took more time to scrape mud and rat poop off of it so I could find all the bolts than it did to pull it out. Good times. My friend Jeff came by in his 56 Lincoln to lend a hand.

Don't judge my photography skills from these iPhone photos.

You are off to a great start on the truck, good luck. Jeff's Lincoln is nice, Platinum Blond Starlet seatcover would be a nice touch.

You will be happy keeping the 54 grille. IMHO. Every show I go to (non-Ford), you never see a 54, once in awhile a 55 or 56 but never a 54 with the fangs. Here's why I love 'em!



Keep us updated.

She's going to be a dark sider. 302 with AOD, IFS (undecided on which one), similar wheels to stock but wider, white walls. As far as everything else goes, pretty much factory. No chop, no body mods, maybe a tilt hood because I hate the factory hinges.

The '53 grille looks great too, but mostly when equipped with the deluxe trim teeth, and the slight yellow glow to the 6-volt lights. It really pops out (kinda creepy though) when there is a slight fog, at night, or maybe a stirring of dust, creating an evil looking image when looking at the grille just right.
