    Go look at the Whiskey Runner that jimmy shine built for Billy Gibbons. It's a 33/4 on a 32 chassis

    That coupe is not on a 32 frame. You can tell itsa a 34 by the profile.

    1933-'34 wheelbase = 112" ... 1932 chassis = 106"...
    maybe slide the rearend back, CEE the frame if it needs it... front crossmember and tranny mount forward just a tad...

    Alchemy,

    It may not be a 32 frame complete, as I never saw a reveal under the rockers, but the front half from doors forward is duece

    maybe a '32-'34 frame splice... that would let them buy the missing 6" ...

    Although I am not a fan of shines work, I could be a big fan of the brunette driving his truck.

    Anybody got and old pics of such a car? Thinking east coast style.

    If I recall correctly I think the Whiskey Runner just has the front frame horns altered for the "32" look.

  13. If one were to simply drop a 33/33 on a 32 frame it would not fit.

    Grafting the relatively straight 32 frame horns onto a 33/34 frame would change the stance, raise the ride height, change the profile of the inner fenders and allow a 33/34 grill to fit even with the body being lowered and channeled.

    A year ago when finishing up the fab work for my 32 frame to fit my altered 34 Tudor body I could have spouted off all the measurements of both a 32 and 33/34 frames. One of the areas where a 33/34 is using up the extra 6" in wheelbase is behind the B pillar. On all of the body types I would say you can tell in the lower front quarter panel reveal its longer than 32s. A 33/34 is actually shorter than a 32 up in the engine bay measuring from the front crossmember center line back to the trans or pedal mount on the center crossmembers by 2.5".
    A 33/34 frame is a 1/2"(44"vs43.5") wider than 32 at its widest and stays at 44" from that fat middle section all the way to the back where a 32 coke bottle back down by 4".

    Actually I have a set of 7 degree upswept 32 rails. So they are very close to the 34 contour.

    Sort plotting evil ideas for my next build. It certainly won't be a cookie cutter job that is for sure.

    Keith Hill's Federale Coupe is a model 40 on a 32 chassis, albeit not a stock frame

    This car looks a thousand times better than the horribly over-chopped car in post 3

  19. Maybe it's the shot, but I have thought this before about this car (maroon coupe)...the roof crown and general roof height looks enormous compared with the window opening.
