1963 Super Minx Estate

Ah, my endeavor begins.

I will be scrolling the forums to better understand the lessons already learned and shared. I'm excited to build this beauty for my good wife. Any and all input is welcomed.

Thanks,
Shawn

Shawn,

Congratulations Shawn and welcome to the forum.

You're in for a lot of reading. LOL

What kind of plans and goals will you be trying to accomplish?

I do have plans! I have a small fortune worth of parts that came with the car which I'll upload to my photobucket. The interior is all present and in decent condition. I think I will simply install the radiator and add the battery and see where that takes me. I initially was prepared for an engine upgrade and change to an automatic but with as many parts present, I like the keep original approach. I think we will enjoy all 60hp for awhile, LoL

Thanks,
Shawn

I was able to view the pics ok.

What a clean start! I agree with your 'check some things, get it running, and see what happens' approach.
