1949 - 1953 Ford Flathead All Dressed Up!

1949 – 1953 Ford Flathead All Dressed Up!

53 years ago my dad gave me a wrench and sent me out to remove the head from a 1949 Studebaker.  That wasn’t easy for a 7 year old boy but I got the job done.

At 13 I was working in wrecking yards; at 18 I was running them.   In the 70’s I was the crew chief for the 1977 Pikes Peak Hill Climb Rookie of the Year.  (He is my brother who has gone on to have more wins on that very challenging course than anyone – ever!)

My wife and I have a place now out in the country where I have managed to collect well over 100 cars from the 1930’s up into the 70’s.  I am finally admitting that I am not going to have time to do these cars justice.  My intention is to keep these cars from the crusher – because when these cars are gone they are gone!

We also specialize in building nostalgia hot rod motors such as early Caddy, Olds, Buick, Lincoln, Ford, Chrysler and so on in our complete machine shop.

So browse through our pictures – maybe you will see something that will help you complete your project.
