Here's a quick progress update...
1931 ford model a coupe

Over the weekend spent way time than I had planned on the old girl.
Got the bumper on basically,
and the window regulators.
san diego union - december 29, 1974

It's been fun reading about life in 1974.
Anything shiny is wrapped up in old newspaper!
starter and beer

Best news is the engine finally turned over.
Using the pry-bar score from Uncle Steve,
the flywheel turned over for the first time in 40 years.
I also ended up going through the starter,
which was in amazing condition after cleaning the crustiness.

After some scuffing and cleaning,
the head was plopped on and then it was time to call it a night...
