Thanks Gents

1940 Chevy KC 1/2 ton pickup
400 sbc, T400, 10 bolt, older version Mustang II front end.
Professional build approx 10 years ago on the Californian Coast?
Not sure who built it yet, can only find previous [2nd] owners details -a 70+ year old Japanese guy from Fullerton California.

Planning on making it my daily driver, so have a few maintenance items to fix up.
Bluetooth stereo, reversing camera, alarm, etc etc and getting wipers & seat belts done now in preparation for engineering & rego.
You Melbourne boys will see it out & about a lot more in the next few weeks!!!

Got suicide doors on the coupe Jim, they're not all they're cracked up to be.
Always getting in Rse first.

Very cool. If the steering feels very twitchy with that mustangII there are a couple things you can do to help somewhat.....somewhat

If it's running GM pump you have to buy the shim kit to drop 400psi out of it. Standard GM is around 1200 and the mustang II is designed for 800. Not
Just twitchy it will also eventually blow the seals out. Can't quite remember the exact details but you also need a fair bit of caster as well. These two things made a big difference for me.
Dunno about the chev but I found it pretty easy to mount the wipers on the top side of the screen for the effie. Just ran two individual motors instead of the bracketry, sometimes they do wipe out of time so that's a bit different

Thanks Ken
Its a muscle steering rack anyway, [non-power] so thats ok.
I'll remember the caster when i get the front end aligned, drives ok at the moment but has a turning circle of an ocean liner.
The wipers and belts are being done by Modified Rods in Bayswater, we used an SPW wiper kit which works great.
The belts are a hassle, we've had to weld in supports [now needs paintwork] and move the battery [new cradle & wiring]
But thats how things go!!
Cheers

Ive just bought a 64 F100 in from Arizona,...she arrived this week....
all original except for the 312 T Bird Y block motor..
I drove it aaround for a week or so in Tucson.....
no PS ,..no pb,....original steering n beam axle....it drives terrible really.
Thinking a Jag Front end n maybe a C4 ,...might keep the Y block...

If I do ive got the guy whos known as the Y Bloke just down the road....
hes kinda an international Y Block guru, makes neat stuff for em...including a Y block Blower manifold

Honestly think for something different I might look at a Falcon Barra 6 / Turbo 6 motor..
Found a late model Explorer fidd tonight ...8.8" with electronic locker...n theyre 3" narrower than the 9" in it now, plus it approx 3.4- ratio
Looking at a decent front end first,...thinking a Jag front end
