A wooden head liner? now that would be different.  After changing the red interior color to grey (oem Pinto color) and mounting the walnut panels I'm able to start mounting the tubs for a final time seal to quarters and under coat. Then it's fuel pump& filter,fuel cell and trans cooler w/ fan and on and on. Yea for the project! The motor and trans are waiting to find a home. For those of you that may not know this project has been going on for around 3 1/2 years(eat the elephant one bolt at a time). Have tried to keep my gallery up to speed with a picture or two here and there. Hoping to hit the ground this spring in primer, we'll see.

I do think that it would look great. For sure nobody would have one like it. Not talking much weight. Not that it would be a problem with that motor that your installing for sure.

Heck you could have an overhead consule for gauges and switches and such.

My Sedandelivery came from the factory with wood panels in the interior similar to those, but of a cheaper type material. I tried to post a picture I have but it said the file was too large.

Just re size the pic, or host it on Photobucket or someplace and link to it that's the easiest.

Had a great day and made a lot of headway! Wiring guy has all wiring done to the dash area(glad it's him and not me doing it) I got plug wires to coils and will size them this week. Sorry no wood headliner.

spent the morning building the throttle linkage, can't tell you how much I enjoy fabricating this stuff. Bud       A sharp eye could tell what carb that is!

If it hasn't been messed with it looks like a 3310-2 or 3(750), my Boss 302 had a 3310-1(780 with a Ford part number))which had the secondary metering block.

Ok I must be blind, I saw the choke area but I don't see a choke, looks to me like the choke horn has been milled off???.. Of course an 1850 can look like that too if you change bowls..

This carb has not been changed in any way, not a very common Holley carb. And yes there is a choke in the picture. (large hole)

And the answer is--- 950cfm Holley 3bbl.  Did a few dyno pulls (950 dbl pumper  1050 and 3bbl)  my set-up liked the 3bbl.

Had a little more time this afternoon to install the rear end and brake set-up. The wood blocks are so I can run the nuts tight for mock-up w/o getting into the nylock part of the nut, when it's off and on and off and on it speeds things up for me. Bud

Had some time to work on the hot rod this week(month) and pushed the ball a little farther down the field. Headers wrapped & sealed (that's a fun job) exhaust built and hung. Trans came back so was able to finish lines, get pinion angle and drive shaft welded & balanced. Also Ralph was able to get back to wiring again(fell and broke his right wrist a few months a go),I get overwhelmed just looking a all those wires. Not Ralph, he wires firetrucks so he oddly enough enjoys it.

Thanks Dianne,  I'm hopping the heat shield will keep the master cyl. from the header heat,only time will tell. I don't think the line lock or perportioning valve will have any trouble.
