Lightbulb "No Quarter"- '27 T coupe project

Just picked up this T coupe body Sat. from a freind. Pretty stoked to have a coupe to work on!
Here it is after getting it back from the blaster today. It's pretty rough, but it'll be fun trying to get it lookin' good again.

Going to be an early '60's hotrod....a little flake, some candy, chrome and pinstriping....loud and obnoxious!!!!! Pretty much a Weesner painting come to life.

Plans call for @ 3" channel over a homebuilt 2x3 frame, Z'd in back, Model A front crossmember, @ 8" chop. I'll be using the SBC out of my truck, just repainting the engine a candy blue color. (still lookin' for a Roto-faze for it.)
Some sort of 4-speed.....maybe a Muncie.

I have a few parts that I've been savin' for this kinda build. Just small stuff..... Once my PU sells, I'll be hittin' this coupe pretty hard.

Wow Josh, I can tell by the goodies you have been saving for the coupe, that this will be a bad ass car. Your taste is perfect from what I have seen so far! Good luck, have fun and keep us up-dated with the build!

Praise the Lord and welcome aboard another T coupe club member.
Keep us posted since it sounds like your build is going to be like greased lightening.

'32 front rails, from the firewall forward, would look good, especially for a 60s style look. That's what I am planning for a future channeled T project. I found some that had been cut off, probably by a street rodder for an IFS swap, for $75 here on the H.A.M.B. classifieds.

Richard.....yeah, I'll be doing something similar. The 2x3 rails will sweep up @ 3-4" and be spliced into the front 2' or so of a Model A frame, to keep the horns and crossmember. I think it looks a bit cleaner than just a Z....plus I have the A frame to lop off the front of.

Glad to see you were able to find a coupe to build. Hope the truck sale goes quick so you can tear into that thing.
