The Sweet Sounds of a Flathead Ford V8
This motor came in as a block with original crank with the machine work completed in preparation for a rebuild. The parts came from Honest Charley Speed Shop, spec'd by hot rodding ace Mike Goodman including custom polished Sharp heads and dual carb intake. Hal Everett spent some quality time assembling the motor and getting the carbs tuned as well as figuring out some distributor and water pump fitment issues. The result is one of the best sounding flathead motors that we have ever heard (and believe us we've heard a whole bunch of them). We threw this video together just to share the sweet sounds of this engine in a short YouTube clip, but couldn't bring ourselves to cut it any shorter. So forgive us, it is a little long, but such an awesome sounding engine, we just had to share.

Marts 33 Ford Coupe hits the road..wmv
This 33 Ford 5 window coupe had sat in a barn since 1959. I bought it 3 months ago and have just fixed what needed fixing. It's repaired not restored. In the UK you can drive it legally to a test station before it is registered. This is the cars first drive on public roads since 1959. It drove really well despite no shakedown at all. Next comes registration and proper regular road use. Mart.
