Default East Coast 1934 Ford 3w Coupe Build

Its been one of my dream cars, Model 40 3 window Coupe, Channeled and un-chopped. I stumbled into this fellow and couldn't leave it. My Plan is Keep it Super Simple! And Get it Running as quick as possible.

Here's what I know about it...

  • 1934 Ford 3w Coupe
  • Old aluminum Minnesota vin plate on the firewall
  • Channeled 5"
  • Lincoln Zephyr Rear Axle, Spring and Brakes
  • Lincoln Zephyr Front Axle, Spring and Brakes
  • 1956-1957 Chevy 265 without Power Pack Heads
  • Aluminum plate trans adapter
  • Ford 1939 top shift box
  • Hydraulic Slave Cylinder
  • 1940 Ford Brake Master Cylinders for both brakes and clutch
  • 1932 Ford Grille and Radiator

Here's a few Pix:

I like that!

Shame it looks like someone's torched through the torque tube and driveshaft, but a suitable replacement Ford one shouldn't be hard to find? Or was that the start of someone "adjusting" the LZ one to fit?

Your On!! Yes the cross member is a little strange, I cut it out with the plasma today and I cleaned up some other spots. I'm planning on running the Zephyr rear, I have a '40 torque tube and a '40 drive shaft, I'll take it all apart tomorrow and see if the parts will interchange.

I believe this was a driver at one time, it got parked and them some torch happy ebay'r got a-hold of it.....

Yes, so here's a little more history.. Apparently my seller got it off of ebay sometime ago. The ebay seller had the body listed around X-Mas time and couldn't get it sold. He had taken the car apart via a torch....
  • Blew through the torque tube bearing and drive shaft (its only 6 bolts?)


  • Blew the front 1"x1/2" shock brackets
  • Blew the front radius rod brackets off
  • Blew off some other gussets on the frame too
  • Cut the body off the frame
So my seller asked if the guy had a anything else to go with the car, well YEA! A pile of parts and a frame.... DOH! My seller offered to buy the car if he could get it rolling so it could be transported across the country.

So said ebay seller, threw his blown apart car back together with a welder!

There you have it more history!
