    Normally I would be in the DON'T channel it camp but I saw this today on another thread and now I'm not so sure. That thing looks mean, even with the skinny tires and wire wheels.
    It always seems a shame to channel a '32 and lose the nice reveal line on the side of the frame rails (not to mention the comfort factor). I always thought a good channel would stop just above the reveal, like maybe a 3" channel.

    Awesome score ! build it to suit your vision just like was done in the day. You may not remember me but we met at Irwindale a couple of years ago at the antique drags when you were running your A sedan and we were running the Willys PU. Your sedan was a pleasure to watch going down the track and was no slouch. I hope you plan to treat the 32 as a Hot Rod also . Sincerely Colin

  7. As Alchemy stated. The flip and dip way was how we channeled a 1932 Ford 5 window coupe in the early 1960's when I was in the Stockers car club in Glastonbury, Connecticut. It was an easy way to channel the body, but also left us the option of un-channeling it in the future.

    DSCF0186.JPG Instructions from 1947 Ray Kunh's Automobile Racing Vol 6. Wonder if you could stuff a '32 frame in diagnally throug the deck lid opening with the bottom panel removed and save the cut lines. Bob

    Alternately there is another '50's method "goosenecking" or "V-ing" this is taking pie cuts from the top of the frame at the firewall and under the frame before the front crossmember which drops the body leaving the subframe/floor alone...with a flat frame Z-ing the rear is also necessary but with a '32 probably switching to an A rear cross/spring will do depending on the amount of "sweep" at the front...
