Actually I do have another V12 and was thinking of putting one in but I figured a Flathead V 8 would be cool. I will post pictures as I get into this project.

Very cool project. I'm working on a 28/29 Roadster Pickup with a 39 toploader and a 53 EAC Merc flathead. I wish you luck.

The grille shell looks like a 28/9, but the cowl is definitely not 28., maybe narrowed 30-31?

Looks like a 28-29 Briggs or Murray cowl to me - it's one piece, fuel tank mounts (used to mount!) inside the cowl.

Looks like a good project and a V-12 would be outstanding.

I can just imagine a V12 with an L-100 cam. Warms the cockles of my heart.

How about a custom fabricated intake with six strombergs, maybe just two or three that really work. Rich

This is the engine in my 32. I think a V8 in this one will be easier and much cheaper to build.

Here are pictures of the transmission I will be using. It is from a 1952 Ford and I recently found an early Hurst shifter to adapt for this project.

It has been a while since I posted on this side of the forum. I have made some progress on this project slowly but shurely. Pictures are showing where I had to shorten the floor board due to the fact that this body was narrowed and shortened as well. Also this past weekend I was able to do more work I had located a pillar post from a 1929 Briggs which I had to slice in half so that one piece would be use for the left side and the other for the right side and would be welded to the rear quarter panel. Both rear quarter panels were made out of the two rear doors and both were shortened down to 12 inches in width. As you can see from these pictures.

Thanks
Frenchy
