Exclamation After 8 years it's on the road again !

I have never introduced my self here on the barn so I guess it's better late then never. I have been refurbishing my car for the last 8 years .The project started in Ca. where I lived and owned an independent auto repair shop and is being finished up here in Arkansas where I have retired.I did all the body, paint mechanical work myself.On Father's Day I started it for the first time and have put 20 miles on it since then,wearing a big smile on my face.
Thanks to all the past and present Ford Barn members for all the valuable information I have obtained on this sight.I will try to contribute as much as I can to help others also.
My 30 Tudor has an A.E.R. Touring engine,Mitchell trans, and 3.54 rear end.
All I have to do now is install the rear window and rear seat, carpets , and polish and install the cowl band. Thanks, Dennis

It was supposed to be Washington blue but ended up as what you see. I did not know better at the time and now I really like it.
