Brent,
Just make sure to do real nice, good, work.
Nothing worse than a 'tossed in the hole' boneyard engine.
There's a white '37 Dictator sedan on Ebay that is so...cosmetic.(Item number: 4606477606)
The owner spent his money at the frame shop for the M2 derivative front end. Had the upholstery shop put in a fairly generic interior (which looks pretty decent) and had the paint shop straighten out the body and squirt bright white paint (the easiest 'non' color to shoot). Hung a 9" on the stock springs, bolted in a junkyard engine.
Then up on Ebay it goes with a reserve it does not deserve....
Good work trumps almost everything.
Jeff[8D]

I saw that '37 on eBay, Jeff.

Makes me want to go out and buy stock in a tie-wrap manufacturer.[}:)]
