  1. Let's get to the point.
    That answer is of course, "Yes!" If that's all you wanted to know then we're done. The rest of us have our own spin on what you, the O.P. should also do but that don't help as of now. As the Muddy Water cleared some most of us now know he's (you) not just going to Bolt in a dropped Axle. This project if it actually exists is a full blown Cut up the chassis and floors build (you can't just bolt in a 200-R-4) . So if he want's to milk the Wealth of info one Squirt at a time and make all the novice mistakes along the way let him go. If you want good suggestions and real input lay out your Cards and sit back. Then harvest the truly Good info that works for you and Trash the rest. You will get bombarded with every direction known so get ready. Playing Cat-n-Mouse just get's you passed over by most that would do you the most good. And photos would help.

    I have. They are very nice.
    But there is a very serious purpose of the path to this my last build.
    I'll keep you posted on the conversion.

  5. You stared with 'bone stock' and you've said 'conversion' twice.
    Could you please explain exactly what you mean by these terms/words?

    The above highlighted statement has had me confused from the start.
    Is it your understanding that highboys were available from Ford.
    Another point, what would a "ground hugging" highboy look like?
    Yeh, cat and mouse for sure.

    Reminds me of when my bud Ted bought Tim's '32 Five window...All apart, just home from Flyer's Paint shop...Tim went to M.I.T., his Mom begged me to take the Deuce out of her garage! $$ bargain, included the FRESH 324 Olds, with dual range hydro.
    When we moved the Deuce to my Grandma's garage, it sat for 3 months or so, Ted asked me if I'd buy it from him. "Pay me later..." I did, after selling off the fenders, boards, Olds engine & hydro...then stripped the beautiful Flyer Maroon paint!
    Body & frame got 30 coats of RED nitro, sanded between 2 went up quickly, thanks to fellow members of 'Hernando's Racing Team'. Borrowed Quick Change, (Culver City Hali) much suspension chrome, (chrome shop allowed me to polish his stuff and mine for chrome on mine) 304" flathead, built by me and 2 Hernando's guys, '38 Lincoln box.
    Well. I didn't start with a restoration, but it was close! And I didn't chop the top!

    Just go buy a pre-built chassis, and a after market body and build your dream street rod, then sell the original car to someone who knows what they're doing.

    Your money, your car, your decision. But if that 32 is anywhere as nice as it looks I would juice the brakes and drive the wheels off of it.
  13. That car is beautiful. It looks complete except the pin stripe (trust me stripes make a lot of difference). Put on hydraulic brakes and let your wife drive it for a while. She may like it the way it is now. May save you a lot of money. A few "hop up" items and you are done.

  15. If it’s plug and play with minimal welding to the frame as you said, then why the need for a frame jig? As others have already said, I’m out.....

    This is what happens when 32 Fords die and go to hell.

    Well, at least the photos were worth waiting around for !

    That is one beautiful car, too good to cut up or mess around with, - but you know that.
    ( More louvres on the hood than what it needs, also ! )

    Reversed eye front spring, big and little tyres, dropped headlight bar, won’t give you what you want ???

    In order to install a quickchange, the rear cross member will need switched out. Not exactly a plug and play change.

    I’ve grafted a few A and T centers into a stock cross and didn’t disturb the rivets

    Totally agree! That is too nice a ‘32 to chop up.

    Yup, I agree. To many other options out there than to chop up a nice original car nowadays....
  24. When I put the Mercruiser Marine engine in my AVATAR I had to drill 2 holes in the frame for the front motor mounts, otherwise everything else bolted together using existing holes. I don't think I would start cutting a car as nice as that coupe.

    No chop. Yuk. Never. Project with zero welding and only bolt in/on custom parts. It can be done.

  26. Well, for such confidence, your questions don't gel.
