    The 32 Plymouth project started in January. Up until now, the project has been in the disassembly stage. I have been removing parts and organizing them. This week, the "assembly" stage begins with the frame being sandblasted. I got it home, cleaned up a few spots that were missed by the sandblaster and then went to work with the acid etch primer. Total Cost Involved IFS and rear parallel 4 link with Ridetech shocks are on order. Ford explorer 8.8 is ready for modifications. Let the "building" begin!!! Now all I need is a clue of how to do it all!

    Woody, the previous owner in the 50's had made many mods to this car including cutting the crossmember> I am not sure why they did that since there were no clearnce issues in that area with the Saginaw 3 speed that they had installed. I am undoing most of the mods that they made including fixing the crossmember. See the attached pic fro what it looked like before I straightened it.

    This IS my avatar. The previous owner had put a Ford hood and grill on it, and I am replacing it with an original 32 Plymouth PB grill and hood.
    Frame welding starts in the morning. :)

    Brad,
    I'm following your thread and looking forward to your success. There aren't very many of us PB builders left. And they are such beautiful, well-built cars. Best of luck in your build.
