    Folks, Jeff's a Miracle Worker as far as I'm concerned!
    I agree. Not only a beautiful car, but very nicely engineered also.

    Here's my favorite picture of it...

          Thanks for all the kind remarks! What Biggs is talking about my '53 being "rough" is best explained here:

          Someday I need to write up a little article about that project....

            The Chocolate Turkey was built in the house, that was 1974. Body in the bedroom piece by piece, wiring harness on the living room floor.....dishwasher did an amazing job with wire wheels and other cast stuff. If you are welding cast iron, an oven works well for pre-heating.......(what wife??????????????)

              In keeping with the original topic of this thread, here's the V8/auto combo just as it emerged from the '54 hardtop I've just sold.
              I actually used 2 different sling attachment points to get this out easier. Once the four mounts were loose, I slung it from somewhat aft of the engine's center. This allowed me to get the tranny pan over the crossmember that serves to support the rear motor mounts. Once that the combo was lifted and pulled forward in the engine bay (Radiator and fan removed), I set it back down and slung it from the bolt that a PS pump would mount to and one of the bolt holes that's at the rear of the cylinder head. This makes the combo sit nose high when the hoist lifts it again and you can see how the combo emerges from the bay. [^]

                  Yeah - well, the shops FULL of Studes and Stude stuff (ask Dick - he's been here)so I lifted the engine and just kept nudjing the car back with my knee instead of trying to wrestle the hoist backwards.
