New from Northern Minnesota


Hi. I am new here. I am from Duluth Minnesota. That is right near the tip of Lake Superior. I have been doing home improvments myself for many years. I just stumbled on to this site. Maybe I will learn something, and I can also give a few hints I have learned over the years.. Al

Ok. I bought a 1937 Ford Tudor sedan. It was a basket case. The body here, and the frame there. I have pieced it all back together over the last 5 years. it is all steel. No fiberglass was used. It has a Mustang II front suspension, with disc brakes in the front, and lowered 2". The rear is from a Ford wagon. It is a 8" Ford rearend with 373 gears. The motor is a 1982 Chevrolet 350 with a Edelebrock 600cfm carb on a Holley street dominator intake. The engine is pushed 40 over with a Crower cam. The trans is a 350 turbo. i am using a Lokar shifer on it. I have Dolphin cluster gauges. I used a stock frame, and boxed it for strength. I still have to do the interior, bodywork, add glass, and paint it. Al
