    As a little background info we started to build this car several years ago. My dad lost interest, got sick and it went way to the back burner. I tried to sell the car here with no luck. Rather than take a big hit we just sat on the car. Then my dad got feeling better. He and I, with the help of Kevin Slack got the project done. My friend at Mad Cycle did the wiring. It's got a small block ford as God and Henry Ford intended and a C-4. 9 inch with 4 bar link and dropped axle with Mopar discs. Some sort of plymouth wheels (let me know if you know what car) and it's pretty stock. I really believe the car helped my dad regain his strength. He's 75 now and you never get too old to hot rod.

    As far as the woodwork. It's all custom built. A friend who does wood work drew it up (no blue prints) and laid it out. Cut all his own patterns. Pretty amazing actually. He's done 3. His goal was to make the woodwork look as orignal as possible. So, it's just a truck cowl, custom body, brookville frame. All the steel is Ford. The old girl gets a lot of attention.
