    My last post asked about opinions on how to (re)build my dads 32. Finally got her back down to Florida and am getting to work. Looks like we are going to be removing the mustang II dad installed in the 80's and install the 4" dropped chrome I-beam I picked up this past weekend at the Turkey run in Daytona. Also got a new vega box, and all the various bits to go with the swap. Here's a few pictures of the disassembly.

    What are you going to do with the ribbed top, leave it or put an insert back on?

    For now, it'll stay. Its a suburban roof, fits well but all of the original wood work is still up there.

    Good call on the roof. I would leave it as well. I think it looks pretty normal.

    The JW Rod garage frame builders kit showed up this afternoon. Couldn't resist doing a quit mockup. Excited to get started on the new frame! 20181207_190855.jpeg 20181207_190907.jpeg

    Try your very hardest not to put that Chevy in there.

    Why not? Its a brand new motor, its looks great, makes good power, I can fix anything that goes wrong with it at any auto parts store and its already built!

    Ford in a Ford is a great rule of thumb.

    Or put a ford in it and spend twice as much.

    Didn't buy the JW ROD GARAGE kit, but just the rails...
    they look good, 11 Ga. ... spreader bar and body bolt tiedown holes only...
    ford guy, the way God and Henry intended it...
    go fly go !
     
  14. I think not, I would have to say it's 3:1 Chevy vs Ford in Hot Rods. Just the way it is and not trying to stir anything up.

    Anything wrong with the original frame?
     
  16. I am interested in the old frame if you are going to part with it. PM me about it and what you would want for it.
    Thanks Dennis
     
  17. Thought the plan was to trim off the unwanted items on your frame, and traditionalize it. What made you go with the JW parts?

    No, its just not the direction we want to go now.

    I think its easier to start with brand new rails than to cut off everything that was already done. The original frame is complete, partially boxed and would work fine for someone that would like to slap in a sbc, bolt on a body and go cruising.
