Hey there folks! Names Jason... INJUNTOM told me to get my rear over here and check in... Its lookin purdy good so-far, this is my first time on, so be gentle.....
FAQ- Purchased 1937 pontiac 4 door Slantback from a friend @ 3 yrs ago for $500, no motor/trans., but the body was in great shape. Everthing was disassebled and bagged/boxed/labeled when I got the car. We (my buds n I) proceeded to figure out what for motor/trans would be good canidates. When a freebie 250 six out of a Nova turned up, that solved that. The 700r4 trans-a-mission would come by a freebie as well, from one of my buddies in the group. Big Al, the one who sold me the car helped me setup the motor/trany mounts from the stockers cut out of the Nova. In between trips to the shop I had to piece the already disassembled car back together.. with nothing more than a shop manual to guide me. Kinda like putting a puzzle together without the photo on the box. Anyhow the motor and trans are in Interior of the car is in, and some of the small amounts of bodywork are getting finished up. Ive installed front lowering springs from Eaton, and 2" blocks out back.The brakes, and installing the fuel tank/lines are the next biggies on my list.
Along with Tom, I could use some 'better' chrome trim for the sides of my 6 cyl hood. I say 'better, as mine are falling apart. Chrome finish isnt my worry as they will be painted red to match the grille sides, just need to be solid.
Thanks for taking the time to learn a lil bout my project, a little later I'll fill ya in about me.
