29 Roadster starting for the first time
Here's a clip of my 29 roadster starting for first time. The engine is a
1940 Mercury flathead that was rebuilt in the 70s with an Isky cam but
hadn't been run in over 30 years.

Flathead Ford 21 stud V-8, Ultra Rare Vintage Supercharger, 400 Jr. cam, open headers!!!!!!!!!!
Flathead Ford V-8 with Ultra Rare 1940's vintage S&S centrifugal Supercharger, Isky 400 Jr. Cam, ported and
relieved, with open headers. This 1934 Ford 5 window standard Coupe sat in
a junkyard outside Memphis for many years. The engine came from a private
collection and, according to the data plate riveted to the bellhousing, was
rebuilt by Fallo Engine and Porting Service in Memphis in January 1948. I
simply disassembled the engine, ported it, installed a 400 Jr cam, Manly
valves, and a custom modified 1932 aluminum oil pan. The body and frame
remained uncut so I decided to stick to the grass roots of hot rodding in
the 1940's. This car is running with the original radiator, and gas tank
and the tires are 60 year old Denman brand on 18" 1932 Ford wheels.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it
a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly
used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition,
as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers.
This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and
the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry
produce to market.
