I had some help stop by so I got the front clip on and finished up the wiring.

I fired it up tonight, set the timing and adjusted the carbs. I have a little leak at the water neck to fix then get some exhaust on it. Once I get the bugs worked out I'll post some video.

I would have to take it for a spin even if it had a leak the size of a fire hose

I'm at Dollywood with my grand baby for a few days so it will have to wait...these old cars will be here when she's too grown up to play with "Papoo".

You know if you drive carefully you don't need reverse.
