Looks like Ferguson was telling you what to do next! Bet the front came down a bunch!

That car swallowed quite a mouth full. I'm betting there is a little less tire clearance in the front wheel wells.

doing the same on a not near so cool car... a late 90s Lesabre that is taking up my garage space at the moment... (replacing the engine)  This rust bucket isnt worth the effort to me, and I told the owner but he seems oblivious to what I am saying...

I'm trading my labor for tractor-money....

Was a running 305 chev in it when we got it. But we wanted an original manufactures parts. But a 343 rambler engine was not an option for this 64 rambler. So it's not really original, I suppose, but close. 64 car, 68 engine.

You going to drop the whole cradle or fight to get it out the top?

just had to pull the motor mount off the pass side and had plenty of room to swing the engine out to clear the flexplate out of the bellhousing.

came out the top.
