The old fat 4 is a cool old motor.It has a great sound and good torque.We`ll assume yours is sound and just needs a pump and tune up
from years of storage.Some parts for your motor are hard to find and expensive ignition parts come to mind.Compared even to a 70s 50 the fat 4 is very heavy and a huge gas hog.I can say from personal expierence that in 59 there were some problems with the 50s as our local dealer struggled with them. If it was mine I would give it a try but be aware it could be a nightmare to
get up and running right.And don`t work without a service manual.
