    Marsha's Gen-1 33 build by Wallace18

    The very first FFR kit I ever built was a Gen-1 33.

    She was never happy that I sold that car. Well as luck would have it I am getting a Gen-1 33 kit partially done tomorrow. It has a 347 Blueprint engine/trans package. I was fortunate to get this at a very good price. I really wanted to build one of the new Speedstars, but I could not pass up this deal. I will post photos and details tomorrow. Marsha, my wife gets to pick out the color and interior color. We will do a semi-custom interior on this one vs the standard one I usually do. I am looking forward to this as a way of getting out of the dog house somewhat, LOL.

    Very few Gen-1 builds anymore. Glad to see a "new" one added to the active roster. I'm really interested in seeing your custom interior. I have been putting the interior off while I work on other stuff, so you have time to catch up to me. Your previous work was always top notch, so the new interior should be spectacular!

    Thanks. This one is most likely among the last Gen-1's. The fellow that ordered it thought he was getting a Gen-2 but since he ordered it in Nov. 2018 he got a Gen-1. The Gen-2 was already at SEMA and all.

    `With the holidays it is hard to find time to work on Marsha's 33. I did get a few hours today. I pulled off the body, the top of the firewall, P/B and got rid of the front fender mounts. We are not going to do front fenders. Not sure about the rear ones as of yet. I want to engine turn firewall. Also redo the fuel system, wiring and exhaust. So lots of removal for now.
