    My old mans Devon

    So, now that the moggy has fled the nest, it was time to have a good clean up of the garage, rearranging cupboards and tool box's and then painting the floor... Awaiting the start of this...
    For some.reason there sideways... I'll try sort that out?,

    Anyways. It's a 54, steel bodied fibreglass flip front. Jag back and front. Set up for a baby hemi, but.... Unfortunately not getting one.. Instead, a big v6 Ford lump... Plenty of welding for me to do, and plenty of work ahead. Should be fun...
    Dare I say..... "itl be ready by spring "!?!?

    That's not the one from the early 80's that ran a blown Daimler and was dark green by any chance? Built and owned by Nick Dunford I think.

    If it had a blown Daimler, I'll bet it's the same truck. Really nice at the time. I'll see if I can find some pics of it back then.

    Different truck, Mick had it for at least 30 years but it was never on the road with the blown Daimler.
    It's mentioned in the very first Custom Car mag I bought! December 1984,tour of Scotland.
    Cheers

    Be good to see this one come on, are you looking at one of the UK V6's or a yank one.

    I'd vote gasser but low down would be different hard call
