Default 1953 Ford Customline

Picked this up off CL ... always been a flattie fan. Looking for a donor body as this one is hopeless. Frame will get dropped, flattie hot-rodded ala 50's style followed by the cliche flat black paint job with cherry red rims and chromies.

Stock is 110! Woo-hoo! hahaha

For now I'll just do a standard rebuild with aftermarket heads, exhaust and dual carbs to squeeze maybe 150. Later on I might stroke it with a Merc crank and push 200. If I win the lotto, I'll throw a blower on it and get it up around 300!

I picked up a donor body from Kansas and it has been in the COLD garage, so not much progress!
