Default Streetwerkz 30 sedan build

Finally have gotten time to start this project, I hope it stays on course.

It's a 1930 Ford Sedan

Goals for the project are to keep designs, and architecture from the 1930's, 40's, and 50's in mind during the build.

make the vehicle modern enough to be safe, and reliable.. not too modern

Kustomize just enough, and not to much

lots of Horse Power

109" wheel base

traditional front suspension

chopped, channeled

who knows what else.... we'll play alot of it by ear as we go



Heres what we started with, I bought it off ebay, and supposed to be a 60's chop on it. Which I believe cause they did a horrible job, I'm sure it was gonna have a mile of lead in it

blew it apart to find out what needs replaced, try to figure out how to fix what's been done wrong

then built a simple jig to hold the cowl so I could start repairs

Default Re: Streetwerkz 30 sedan build

I was going to cut up the gas tank (which was good) for more room up front,
traded a buddy for one that had already been cut on so he could have my old one to use.

cut the bottom out, got it mounted

then cut out the lower cowl's and cleco'd in the patches

Default Re: Streetwerkz 30 sedan build

next I started on the dash

I wanted something with style, and personality.

So I found a dash out of a 50 Chevy sedan, and knew where it belonged

thank god the face of the dash if nice and flat, made lay out a dream.
had to take 9 5/8" out of the dash, took 2" off each end, and the balance out of the glove box.

cut her up, and got about half way threw fit up when I realized it was 10 pm, because my internal clock said go home lol


I love it!

body looks pretty good..If its a 60's chop..then its probably gas welded...so you may be able to hammer and dolly that stuff pretty straight....In my opinion, the 112-116 wheelbase may look a tad too long...good luck, keep us posted!

Default Re: Streetwerkz 30 sedan build

not much done today, as I had a guest drop off a project that took a while to go over

needed to add some inner structure support, so I made this out of 1/4" X 2" bar stock, then gusseted the ends.
hard to believe this little bracket took about 2 hours to make

I had to first measure the radius of the gas tank so I could match it, and then bend the ends down, and add gussets at the ends for strength.

befor, the area where the bolts are

cut the bar stock, measured the radius, rolled it to form, then bent on the ends, and matched hole locations

Added gussets on the ends, and welded into place

So now I have more over all strength, and a lip to werk from for the new dash

You don't HAVE to do it that way, you could do the thing you want then do it over again after you did the 20 things you shouldve done first

Looks awesome man cant wait to see whats in store for the frame/motor setup.
