1956 Ford Mainline project

This is an epic project involving fitting a 2006 Ford XR8 V8 engine & gearbox to a 1956 Ford mainline – along with the firewall, floorpan, dash, seats, ABS & a heap of other parts from the Falcon.

I'll just dump a pile of pictures here for now & will continue updates with details from this point on.

The project has been at the shop for a couple of years but work has been a bit on & off due to various things going on.

Start:

Chassis was sand blasted and repaired, repainted etc:

Body was pretty rotten:

Extensive fabrication work required:

Pretty much all parts hand made by myself at The Lab:

THANKS! smile

Unfortunately there are a few things that had to be thrown in there but I'm trying to keep it clean & tidy.

REALLY need to get in to it full speed & get it finished – if only there was more time!!!

Getting back on to this one now that there is some space and time, a last ditched attempt to get it done before Christmas – have said that twice before but there might be a chance this time laugh
