    Any Old School Hot Rodders out there? I have an 8 BA Ford flathead w/trans attached. Was running when we pulled it out last year. Also have the radiator. Just trying to whittle down my projects list. 3 jeeps at once is a little much, even for me! MG

    I'm interested... I have an engine-less '48 Ford Club Coupe I'm trying to get the title on - it's tied up in my father's estate. It was previously a 59AB backed by a 3-speed, the 59AB blew and the 3-speed was sold, but if it's the right 3-speed on your 8BA it might get interesting!

    Eli, I'll take a closer look Friday. I'll see if there is a tag on it anywhere. I also have some extra parts-- intake & exhaust manufolds, some other stuff. I was going to put it into a '48 jeep, but at this pace, I'll be dead by the time I have time to work on it! MG

    I mainly need the shifter location - you said top-shift - and what type of yoke is supposed to be on it. If it's a top-shift 3-speed set up for a slip yoke, we might be in business!
    ETA: any idea what year truck it's out of?
