    I like this thread..Its great to see what a guy is willing to save. lots of inspiration here! I want to contribute some pics of my 40 convert. The body was completely cut apart and on a pallet when I got it. The floor is a donor from a Coupe but the rest of the pcs are from the same car...I think..

  3. So, I'm driving my company truck on my route one day and had several hours to dream....dreamed I wanted a 33-34 ford coupe. I found this home made woody wagon on a 33 chassis.....swapped a 53 stude coupe for it and then I found this old stock car body...bought it and now I have this... 34woodie12_07 (1).jpg 34B4.jpg 34rear3_4ths2016.jpg

    Just looking,
    but you have [2] '32-'34 truck cowl tops,
    your tulip panel has had the bead and horizontal cut off...
    looks like you could splice the 2 cowls together and make the bead that is where the rear window turns into the panel above the trunk... let us know if that will work?

    This is a cool thread. Reminds me of when I was maybe 13 on my Grandma's farm, there was a rusty double A Ford truck sitting there. I would sit in it and think about how I would fix it up until the wasp chased me out.

    big dreams (beating 351 swapped foxbodies)... I need a lot more cash.. and probably a daily driver first before I worry about this thing.

    I need to
    mount the engine and trans
    rebuild the engine
    remount the rearend
    find out what's wrong with the steering
    probably box the frame
    put a cage in it
    floors, cabmounts bed all need some help or replacement
    brakes might be important too.

    coupester1.png I scrimped saved stored and dragged this pile of junk from place to place for years actually spent a fair chunk of change on them too... I kept the dream alive until I broke my back and had a baby then I woke up....I guess the dream might have been something I was smoking cuz it turns out I can't give this stuff away ....now it's sitting in storage $30. a month :( coupster1.png
