If we'd have given him enough space he might have spelled it out in bite marks on one of us.... :p

I think you are right about it being a 1952, I had a 1951. That flathead only puts out 80 hp, so I would recomment a 302 replacement and a Falcon front end with disk brakes. I do like the deep red color and remember the red paint from those days was kind of chalky looking. Heck, that truck is 7 years younger than I am!

It would make a great prop....no doubt...the paint is rough but it has a certain depth to it...I think it could be buffed and given a fair sheen.

I was thinking a 48 block with Edelbrock heads and a triple deuce intake. I just like the flathead for the looks...not all that crazy into performance. But the Falcon front end with disks is a near must...

No bumper and no tail lights add to the confusion. :D

I think Frank was a little confused before coffee this morning....the only Chevy motor going in a Ford I own would be the one in a box riding in the bed of the truck!

:D Well, I'd never put a Chevy in a Mopar, but a Ford is fair game & a lot of guys here use them. The idea behind that suggestion is cheap fun & it's pretty hard to hurt a 350.
Look carefully at the right side license bracket on this one:
'30 Model A Coupe 350

If it were mine, I'd put a 383 in it. ;)

I was thinking a 48 block with Edelbrock heads and a triple deuce intake. I just like the flathead for the looks...not all that crazy into performance. But the Falcon front end with disks is a near must...

They look good & I'm with you on that, but spending that kind of money for 1950's performance takes away the "fun factor" for me. I could probably live with the "302 replacement and a Falcon front end with disk brakes." mod, though.

I dunno...I'd like it better stock with the original engine. Part of its panache and appeal is to putter along some country roads, imagining the nostalgia and what it was like back then.

Anyone know the MPG for an 80hp flathead? :lol:


Gear: Kodak Brownie and homemade pin-hole cameras. Burlap sack for a bag.

I am more of a purist...I like my Fords to be Fords and my Chevys to be Chevys...I wouldn't own a Chrysler product...so you can put whatever in one of them. ;)

I helped a friend do a frame up restore on a '56...complete with the original 6 banger...unfortunately all the photos and negs of the project were destroyed in a fire in his shop.

40 MPG would be sweet. :lol: Around here we don't have enough straight road to appreciate anything more than 80hp anyway!
