Another Torino Update and missing parts

Well here’s yet another torino update. I’ve been pushing hard to get it done. Spending WAY too much money right now on this project. I should really just slow down and wait to get it done in the next year, instead of pushing so hard. But whatever. It’s exciting that she starts up with the turn of a key!

She went home from the engine builder guy last Friday evening:
Going Home

Got the hood latch installed, see a video here:

AC LInes

AC Lines
AC Lines all installed, was a lot easier then expected.. EXCEPT for the hose that connects to the BACK of the unit under the dash.

Mocked up the shaker just to see how sexy it will be. Then realized I didn’t have some parts and spend like $300 on that. 🙁

Engine Bay
Engine bay as it currently sits. Need to do some clean up to make it look nicer

What is this?!
Found this in my boxes of parts. Not sure what it is!

I’ve also been spending a LOT of time looking at other people’s threads for ideas/information on how to put stuff together. And while doing that I noticed these two parts are missing from what I have:

I emailed the original owner who took most of the car apart and asked him if maybe he might still have them laying around. If not, it’s just another thing I’ll have to buy, get body work done and then painted and HOPE that it will match. 🙁
