Well folks, it moves under its own power!! Lots more to do but just driving it out the door is a real milestone. First time I've driven a standard in 30+ years, fun stuff! Bugs to work out of course, timing too advanced, and the front Panhard rod mount on the axle is no good, wiggly - made for an interesting drive down the road in high gear (sqirrely), all easy fixes - I never expect perfection right off the bat.
I decided to black out the grille, tail lights and headlights (still need to fit Halogen bulbs in them). At this point the headlight reflectors are just polished brass, I might keep them like that, keeping to the brass trim theme....
The last pic is at ride height.

More test driving today, got the front turn signals installed and mounted halogen bulbs in the headlight reflectors.
Took the opportunity to get a couple pics with its older brother - I think theres a family resemblance...
Got an old Pyrene fire extinguisher from fleabay and mounted it up for a rad catch can.
