    New project car......

    1961 Volvo 544. looks like a 47 Ford. The folks from Volvo actually came to the USA to study the 47 and make detailed drawings and measurements and built the 544 to be a mini 47 Ford.
    Gonna give this thang the Gasser Treatment....

    project car

    Brick,
    Are those JATO exhausts or tail lite protectors on your trailer? Hmmm, now I see how you get up those hills so quick!
    Cool old car! There was one of those in my neighborhood when I grew up. And it did look like an old Ford. It ran forever, I don't know what finally happened to it.

    I've run that trailer with 'the ANIMAL' on it at over 75 with ZERO wobble behind my old Dodge D100. I built it 17+ years ago using a 120 v wirefeed Hobart outa mobile home tongues. It's my $56 trailer.

    I was going to suggest that you make it a Fat Fender car, using the 46/48 Ford or Mercury grills, that way you can use the existing sheet metal. One of the cars i had in the early 60's was a 1948 mercury convertiable and i loved that car. That's one of the cars i wish i had today, but i've had so many cars that i still wish i had today, like a 37 Studabaker couple, or a 1939 LaSalle coupe and the list goes on, i guess it's called to soon old too late smart.

    Zip.
