My 151

[img]https://i.postimg.cc/cCQHwjBs/1960-M151.jpg/img] Here's what didn't post--this is a very early rare Ford 151, early body-number sequence.

That's the 151, the guy put A2 fender halves on it, back in the day that happened alot, he also tried to say it was an A2 before selling it to me. I did ask/mention to a mutt expert changing the fender halves to the 151 type, he said naw don't do it, spent the money on something else, leave it as it is.

I thought it was an A2 also, now I see the 2 cowl vents, looks to be in good shape, if the bottom looks as nice as the top, I would swap it back.

There are alot of holes in the underbody, the curved channel up to where the engine set on was very holy, so the word was it could break off, took it to a body shop, he welded it up good but he also charged me good-----I think he wanted the mutt.I had some posts about it-- in 2009 or so.I put in some front floor panels too.
