Been working on porting the heads this weekend. Here is my progress, some before and afters:

It's not pretty yet because this is just the rough porting using carbide burs and grinding stones. Haven't sanded anything yet.

Technically, a 'motor' is electric.

If you ever get this one finished I'm sure one of the ~10 veteran car magazines in Sweden would love to fly over and write an article about it.
These MOPARs (Chrysler, Desoto, Dodge, Plymouth) from the late 50's, early 60's are VERY popular in Scandinavia. I think they are more common over there than they are here! You almost never see these in car shows over here. Over here, every car show is full of 'Belly button' Chevys...55-57 Chevys. They are called 'belly button' because everybody has one

I guess the Scandinavians have better taste in old American cars than most Americans!

Finally got the chassis and under-body painted.

Next is the suspension. Ordered all new shocks and new leaf springs today. I already have all new bushings, ball-joints, etc.
