    Pretty cool pickup. I can definitely see the access issue. Something I will have to consider.

    Good looking car. I'm thinking something similar for the frame. Channel enough to cover frame and z to help get it closer to the ground.

    If like to see some pics. I'll be running a lasalle trans. I did a under dash for my 54 and I really like how it cleans up the firewall.

    My advice is to NOT chop it. Keep it tall. If you're looking for a nice frame, the '28-'29 frame is a good fit. The motor of course would be your choice.
    If you want pictures of my frame and body, I'll be more than happy to provide them.

    Before you chop, look at windshield height compared to door glass

    I actually prefer them not chopped with a forward leaning rake.

    I have a custom built 32 frame under my 26 coupe by Pete Eastwood. It has worked out very well even with a severe top chop as I am 6 feet tall and the firewall is recessed 4inches. The car is featured in RODACTION mag,July 1985 issue. I,ve had the car 20yrs and still enjoy it. Hope to learn to post pictures soon...........

    To post pictures, select "upload a file", select the pictures you want to post and when the file is loaded select "post" and it is nice to select to post the pictures as "full size images"

    There is a lot of room inside compared to a coupe..
    Here is one I started, but due to health problems had to sell..
    Wish I could have finished it..
    Picture shows what I started out with, and when I sold it.
    These "T"s with the top cut off are really cool, and as I said have a lot of room inside...

    I went with the slightly chopped route. I also went with a t5 and 55 chev/4:11 diff.

    Love the project. I think it’s a great start. Of course if we all had money and time and a big garage you wouldn’t even bother with this metal, but being like most you work with what you have! Good luck. Love the ideas.

    Those look great, but if your over 5’ tall very hard to drive. Buddy had one that was chopped and channeled. I drove it once, very uncomfortable.

    Bummer you couldn't finish it. I can really see how much room there is.

    It was really fortunate to find it the way I did. I've wanted to build one for a while but it wasn't my priority so if it wasn't for the bare bones I would not have gone for it.

    Not much progress but I planned this to be a slow project collecting parts as funds allow. So I picked up a rebuilt 346 long block. The deal was less than have of the cost of a rebuild kit alone. So now I'm looking for transmission ideas. I'd like traditional suggestions. My first idea is early lasalle trans unless someone out there knows of a butter idea. 20180701_162134.jpeg

    If you can find a Cad/Lasalle trans or a 6 bolt late 30's Buick transmission, those would be perfect for that engine. Not cheap, but worth the investment if you are going for period stuff.
