Default New project, it's gonna get strange

OK, when I retired from the US Army in 1995, my first job was driving a hearse. Did this for 8 years part time. So, now that my V-12 is almost ready to rumble, I need somewere to put it. As a pretty good wood worker, I thought I would build a wooden hearse, have always wanted to. I just bought the body needed to make a wooden hearse, a 1942 Ford ambulance. OK, so I am a little kooky, but hey, the wife still kisses me at night. The V-12 will require the frame to be lengthened, the body shorten for a sedance deville town car, and the wooden box will be built on the back. So, look at the pix, and give me your ideas.

Looks pretty cool. I like things that are a little different. People ask me why am I building a station wagon, I tell them everyone has a Camaro and Mustangs. Hope you will keep use updated on the project. John

Ok GMC folks, can I use the V-12 air pump to for an air ride, bagged, suspension. It worked for the big trucks, wouldn't it work to keep a tank full of air on a street rod.?

I don't see any reason why it would not work, It is an air compressor. How is the engine build going?

The big truck compressors run continuously, that may be overkill for what you're using it for. I use a York AC compressor as an air source and what's nice about that it can cycle on and off hooked up to a pressure switch or even just a on and off switch.
