Yes it has.........had some family issues but still working on it.

Those pics have the front just sitting in place. We should start on the tilt front end soon. I finally found a complete factory clutch set up and it's installed. Working on the dual M/C brake set up. It's really slow but still going forward.

Update..........radiator in. A 64 Tempest upper radiator hose fit perfect. Had to take a few cracks at the bottom but we got one to work. (I wanted a molded one as opposed to a flexible one)

I didn't update the brakes. Still don't have the lines run but we put a dual m/c under the floor.

What lower hose is that? I need something very similar for my 34 ford coupe with a 370 Pontiac.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure. I looked to see if there was a number on it but there isn't. I know the people at the auto parts store and they allowed me to find a hose I thought might fit and try it. Took me 2-3 tries at it. I did have to trim a few inches off the end.

You don't save your receipts? lol. I know autozone keeps track of your purchases. My lower is a 2 piece deal also and would be interested in knowing what it was.

Well sorry, for some reason they have no history of my buying this. I buy quite a bit there and really my purchase history was pretty lacking.

Maybe I bought it using my C.C. I'll see about checking that.

'preciate it. Mine looks like a wounded elephant's trunk. Needs about 4 different twists and turns to get from the engine, over the front crossmember and a straight shot into the radiator. Got a big old hunk of corrugated plastic wrapped around the part that touches the cross member. Looks like hell!

I looked credit card........not there. I bought it at Advance Auto Parts. They know me and allowed me to simply go through the hoses. I really should have wrote down what it came off of in case I ever need to replace.

I imagine they replaced it so when I get a chance, I'll go over and see if I can find another.

I hope to have it actually started this month.
