James,

I met you a ways back when I purchased some parts off of your '53 wagon. Try KOTTO in La Habra, California for a windshield. They specialize in chopped windshields and hard to find glass.
Your photo's are great. Paul

James,

I've been following along as you construct, re-engineer and build your 54. It's going to be a cool ride for sure. I'd thought about a 460 for my rebuild but decided against because mine will be a long distance car. I wanted the fuel economy. So chose a stroked 5.0 (331) instead. But I always thought the 460 would make one heck of a sleeper. You definitely have some talent for this type of work. Keep the pictures coming as you go along.

Tony

Thanks Paul,
I remember you, i've kept your contact info, will let you know when other parts become available.

Thanks Tony, for following along. the 331 is a good motor config. Friend of mine put two turbos on one & it puts out 700 hp!. gets 27 miles to gallon when he doesn't have his foot in it... :lol:
