Your Bantam will give my 32 3 Window something to play with.

Wide Ford 429 engine fits excellently with the wide Bantam body. Pretty clever!!

Big Ford engine looking great !!
I used to use Radio Shack wrap wire all the time until I ran out the last time and was dismayed that they no longer carried it. I had the clerk look thru their catalog, and he couldn't find it. Bummer !

Looking good Spanky.

You guys might want to try this for HT leads:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Breadboard-B-30-1000-Tin-Plated-Copper-Wire-Wrapping-30AWG-Cable-305M-Blue-SP-/172212275228?hash=item2818a6c81c:g:YycAAOSwvg9XbLQk

It's a smidge over scale but not really noticeable when installed. It's as cheap as chips at £3.67 + free shipping for 1000 ft. Available in a  variety of colours too or as a mixed pack for £5.67:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/P-N-B-30-1000-200M-30AWG-8-Wire-Colored-Insulation-Wrapping-Cable-SP-/201611803307?hash=item2ef0fffaab:g:KPIAAOSwOVpXcCn1

Being a soft single core, it is easy to 'drape' and holds it shape well. 

I have been using similar stuff for the last ten years but the insulation on this latest batch strips reall easy with a thumbnail, which aids in placement.

Thanks again for all the Feedback and comments.  Skid, thank you for the link for wrapping wire.  Radio Shack shutting down a lot of store fronts has definitely been inconvenient.  

Here is the progress I've been making:

Headers were made from solder and plastic stock:





Up on wheels with a mock of the engine and body.  






The rear wheels are not as centered as I would like so I have to adjust some more of the frame at the Z to adjust fit.  This will also help move the engine a bit closer to the firewall.

One of the problems with "monster slicks" is having a fendered vehicle sitting high. The engine does look good with that body, nice engine work.

Looking good! Minor adjustments to the fit and placement are a constant with 'bashed' builds - looking forward to seeing the next developments!

Those wheels are quite popular here lately. I'm using them on my 1964 Fairlane build.

Scavenged head lights, lens and shocks.  The supports were made from scrap exhaust tubes and bent over a heat gun.  Shock attachment points added.  The pin inserted at the tip still needs to be cut down.
