    Iv'e purchased a 31 ford coupe body, and i'm thinking of putting it on a 32 chassis. Any recommendations or suggestions from any one. Would be appreciated.

    We have at least a couple of members who build nice chassis.
    Rusty at Dirty's speed shop in the Dallas area builds a nice one. http://www.dirtysspeedshop.com/
    I was seriously thinking about having him build one and do a combined visit the inlaws and pick up the chassis trip. Wife wants fenders on the A so things change but the cost is the same with new steel fenders.
     
  3. Moose documented how he did his.
    You just have to find it.

    Go original if you can find one, mainly for title/registration. They pop up here in the classifieds once in a while.

    It would be beneficial in your search if you indicated where you're located. There are great shops all over the country that can build you a '32 chassis. If you let the HAMB know your location it would make referrals easier. In California I also would recommend Gary Maxwell at Blackboard in Bakersfield.

    Been thinking about using Gary Maxwell as well. Does anyone have a ballpark idea of shipping cost from California to S. Carolina for a 32 frame?

    That would be advisable if he was using a 32 body but with an A body on 32 rails doesn't mean much out side of bragging rights of having a gennie Henry frame.
    As long as the shop provides a statement of origin and stamps their number in the frame he shouldn't have an issue in most states.
