    Now I know most of you will probably call me crazy ( wife already knows this) but I was wondering has anyone out there ever build a 34 ford (I want to use a fiberglass roadster body) on a 1932 ford chassis? I know the wheelbase is 2" longer on the 34' vrs the 32' but I think the 32 chassis is the prettiest chassis ford ever built and I want to make it a highboy. Besides that I already have a 32' chassis built and ready. I would appreciate any input on this build I would like to do.
    Thanks,Kyle
     
  2. I bought a '32 chopped Tudor setting on a '33/34 chassis in SoCal in '69 for the body. I did a '32 tank behind a '34 roadster on a '34 modified frame a few years ago. And I've seen '33/34's on '32 frames. I'm all for the '32 rails and tank...have at it. It's been done before for all the right reasons in my humble opinion.

    My 34 has a 32 frame under it. I´m just about to get it ready for paint, the seafoamgreen is photoshop...I really like how the rocker follows the curve of the 32 frame rail. 01.10.2016 041.jpg

  5. Kyle, The wheelbase on a 33-34 is 112" compared to 106" on a 32 . Not saying it cant be done, might be:cool::cool:

    I think the way shorter wheelbase will make it weird looking. Are you going to lengthen the wheelbase? Lots of cutting and reshaping on the floor, too.
