1939 Ford Junkyard Hot Rod Revival - Ep. 5
Added by AutomotiveUploads
Now that the old crusty and water logged Y-Block is removed from the 1939 Ford, its time to get the replacement. Since picking up the car, Matt has been searching for a decent running engine to get the Tudor back on the road quickly. He was offered a few engines that needed to be freshened up, or rebuilt but we want to avoid the rabbit hole. A good friend was able to place Matt in contact with a local hot rodder that took a restored Ford Thunderbird off its stock chassis and placed it on a street rod chassis. The stock chassis and drive train was not needed, so Matt was able to snag the engine for one heck of a deal. Next up for the 39 is to brace the body and pluck it off the frame!
