I always thought the wrap around windshield was okay. But it was only used from 53 to the early 60's or so then never used again on cars.
I think the 55 Lincoln didn't use a wrap around windshield on their cars, not sure about 56.

Tim must live in Iran or so such place. I think over there they were digging mass graves...

Only thing I never liked about a hardtop is they are prone to leak around the tops of the doors etc..

Things like detonation can hurt any motor or the engine running hot because of mis-timing.

We always just used Permatex on freeze plugs when installing.

I had wondered if my 1951 288/ Ultra could go in my 1946 Clipper 6? I figured it would not work well, since engine mounts are different, and wasn't the water pump offset on the earlier engines?

Usually if the engine is kicking back on the starter it is to far advanced.
We usually set the timing so you have a slight "ping" on an uphill grade.

This is what they should have had for Ghostbusters instead of a Cadillac....

Makes for an interesting project. I assume the bore in the master cylinder is larger than standard 1" bore?
