    Hi Neal,

    what would you like to know?
    Tyres are pretty standard 7.5x16 rear and 5.35-5.50x16 front. I went halves with my father on this car, it came out of the classifieds here and we shipped it to CA and then to Australia. I redid the driveline. it has an 8BA motor I went through, the top loader trans out of my roadster and the diff out of my roadster ( 3.78) Hydraulic brakes, 4" drop 32 axle we had.

    I have a B headlight bar that is dropped that will go on it too. Need to finish off the electrical and exhaust. and I'm sure there are a few other small things that will crop up. I put the 37 single intake on to run the cam in and sort it all out. it also has the Mag I have/had for my roadster, as I think the mag will stay on this motor now. As good a place for it as any.

    induction still isn't 100% sorted out as yet, got a couple of ideas and a few different intakes I can choose from. It has the original hood , obviously its off so I can play with the motor. car has 59k mile's on it and I have no reason to think that isn't accurate.

    Was nice to finally take it for its first drive with the new drivetrain in it.

    I have seen pictures of your 4dr. if it turns out half as nice as your RPU than it will be a very nice car.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds pretty similar to what I have cooking. I hope to be on the road for the summer of 2014. We'll see what happens...

    Anyone have input on the best supplier for sheet metal patches for a 32 sedan? I'm going to need the common patches but also some door parts. Thanks.

    Here is mine... Almost back on the road after a complete drivetrain change up and all the odds and ends that come with taking apart a hot rod. Finishing up the AC, wiring, and then get the hood and hood sides back on.

    Gonzo - The front is chopped 3.5", the center is 3.25", and the rear is 3". The top had to be stretched to line up with the windshield posts. Gary Mussman of Cornhusker Rod & Custom (http://cornhuskerrodandcustom.net) original built the car and did the chop. They do great work!

    My first hot rod I've owned for 23 years (3rd rebuild). Even though I am more of a 34 fan, this was the first old car I rode in which drove me from muscle cars to hot rods and never looked back. I call this my hot rod mini van as I can stuff a ton parts or luggage or both and hit the road. 5K miles last year with LA and Canada via highway 1 along the coast. Great year!

    I think this is the old Jim Wrench car from MO. I have seen many iterations of the body and this one is the best yet. It is not a model 40 but is one of my favorite sedans.

    This is off another thread. Pretty righteous.
