    1953 Wagon Progress #4

    Got everything back into the frame and will put body on soon. Since I had previously constructed all the subsystems before powder coating the frame it is going back together quickly.

    Well, a differential is known as a pumpkin, so the color seems fitting to me!

    Looks nice except the engine, just my opinion.

    Wow...a full length (not sure about the built-in bend but) Panhard bar...nice going..!
    And for what it's worth...the engine choice is just fine.

    If it finishes looking as nice as it does at the start, I'd drive it...with pride.

    Keep us in the loop, looking forward to the updates!

    A lot of the original Ford pumpkins were painted a red oxide color which I tried to duplicate but it came out not red enough, Oh well. Had to put a bend in the panhard bar so it did not hit the back of the rear end housing at full compression, I could not move it back far enough to clear the rear end and not hit the gas tank and/or fuel lines. It is made out of thick wall tubing.
