    Have a question about the Nash Ambassador steering box your using. Wondering what years and other makes used this box. Maybe yourself or other readers can pass on some info. Your workmanship is exceptional and I really like how your routing the exhaust.

  4. Can't wait to see the tires mounted on those wheels. Chrome looks great!

    fifteen is too young, thirty-six is too old, twenty-four is just right.

    I remember learning that when I was much younger, and it made sense then. But at this age, 36 looks mighty good too! :D

    It has to be loaded up on a video hosting site, like youtube, and the link shared here. I can do that for you if you can send the video to me.

    I’m not a complete box expert . But what I do know is it’s made in 37 by gammer. It’s a larger box then the Nash Lafayette. But the Lafayette has the same style mounting flange . , the Lafayette. Shares the same pitman arm as the early fords of that area , as gammer also made those boxes , as well as the f1 and the Hudson boxes . the ambassador box shares the same pitman arm as the 1-1/2 ton ford trucks

    Thanks for the info on the Nash steering box. I plan on visiting one of the vintage wrecking yards in my area next weekend and your info will come in handy. I've been looking for an alternative to the F-1 and reversed Corvair boxes. The exhaust on your coupe looks bad ass.
