Default 1940 Ford Coupe

Merry Christmas to me...... Picking up a 40 Ford Coupe this weekend. It's a barn find in pretty good shape. Has a Mercury Flathead engine (doesn't run) and the rest of the car is pretty much original.

The engine's gonna have to be rebuilt. Was hoping I could get the valves unstuck, clean it up and crank it, not the case. We got the valves out and the crank will turn over but it needs gone through. gonna work on pulling the engine and transmission next.
