This old school body over late model mechanicals is back on the front burner. Hopefully, she’ll be hitting the pavement soon for some break in miles.
Now, for something completely different, we have a 1935 Ford. Dean installed a new harness in this car, removed the dash panel and had metal added to make it long enough in height to conceal the A/C blower box, installed the Vintage air controls and wired those, and installed the Vintage Air components under the hood. If the driver wants to go old school, he can still crank out the windshield to let in fresh air.
The old wiring removed from the car was an amusing lesson. If you wire something together by twisting the wires together and wrapping them in electrical tape, don’t be upset with inconsistent electrical performance. Having said that, we’re glad the twister kept it on the road. Thanks, Mr. Twister!
This Triumph Stag with a Chevrolet V8 is in for service. It doesn’t run. The fuel pump is one problem, so we’re starting there. We’re also replacing the speedometer cable and checking the alternator because it’s not charging. Once it’s running, we’ll see if anything else is a problem.
We took all the trim off of this Corvette and it’s off to the paint shop. Here are some “Before” pictures.
