Default pic request: '46-'48 Ford 2 door Sedans

I would like to see the '46-'48 Ford 2 door sedans that HAMBers either own or have owned. I was also like to know what experience you guys have as far as chassis swaps on this style car. Thanks

Stock chassis is no longer there otherwise it would be reworked.

There's quite a few threads on lowering the 46-48 fords without using a frame swap, thought it won't help you since yours is gone! one thread goes into it a little i think though.

and a thread i started looking for chopped sedan photos:
http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=308708

Do a search for "46/47/48 ford" and you'll find a lot of threads and some really killer looking 46/48 fords, unfortunately you'll have to look through the coupes to see the sedans!

Whereabout is Sherwood OH?

Jman..

I had one..

traded it to another hamber..

I would find a OEM frame before I tried to do a "swap"

mine had a late 70s sub, and it.. well.. sucked

it was too wide, and UGLY..

it did (however)let the car get REAL LOW..

the car was FLATBLACK with red wheels.. so I'll spare you the photo..

I had that coupe for a while when I was in PA that I got from Grumpy. It had a Camaro stub on it and sat pretty nice. The Sedan actually has a mid '70's Monte Carlo frame but I do not care much for the idea of it. I would rather use a stock one or something newer. I liked how the coupe rode with the IFS so that would be a definite plus.

This 46 tudor has an 83 Oldsmobile frame. Chevy 350/350. Great fit and rides great.

Here is mine.

I can gladly give you specifics if you want. It does use the stock frame, however.

koolkemp, you and me both. Bump my "chopped" thread back up maybe that fella who's dad chopped that nice white one has the pictures by now? I can't believe there's so few of these sedans out there in kustom land... maybe too big and bulky that nobody took them on?

this is mine as it sits currently...still being built.
