Default Cab's 1927 T Roadster Pickup Build Thread

This will be a traditional hotrod. The end.


Here's the mockup...















But really... Stevie has been collecting parts for a hotrod build for quite some time. Originally this was going to be a modified in the style of notch's truck, but has evolved into what we have here, a late 40's dry lakes era 27 T roadster pickup.

Stevies dream has been to build his own hotrod, and I'm stoked to be part of teaching him all the related skills involved and to build a dope hotrod in the process.

Don't worry, the gap between the rails and body will disappear.


Ingredients:
  • 27 RPU Body
  • 32 Ford Commercial Grille
  • E&J's
  • Shadow Rods Deuce rails
  • Ionia hotrods boxing plates and x-member
  • A front and rear crossmembers
  • 3" dropped and drilled front axle 40 Ford?
  • 59AB Flatmotor with a tasty Weiand intake with 2 97's
  • Navarro heads
  • 39 Ford trans
  • 39 Pedal assembly
  • 46-48 Ford rear with a Halibrand QC and unsplit rear bones.
  • 40 ford front bones
  • Real-deal aluminum bomber seats from an AT-11
  • 48 f1 steering box
  • Delco hydraulic lever shocks
  • 40 ford brakes in front
  • 16" Kelseys
  • 5.00-16's in front, and 7.00-16's out back.
  • A or T steering wheel
Stevie and I will be updating this as work progresses....enjoy and let the flaming begin!

Scotty, Chuckles Garage

Looks like a great project. I'll be watching this one as I've got just about everything you have pictured laying around here. It might light a fire.

The AT 11 shared the same seats as the early Beech 18 civil models. They are pretty tall.

This is going to be awesome!!! Cab always has an eye for style and all of his cars thus far have been pretty classy. Can't wait to watch this one come together!!!

My only critique on the build plan this far is those E&J headlights. Not sure why people like them and would choose the over some nice BLC's. Who am I though, just some goon with only a sliver of the style that you guys have.

Nice Cab, you're gonna love it. If this turns out 1/2 as nice as your last rod I am sure it will be impressive.
