    '42 Ford spindle with full '40 Ford brake
    4 16" Ford 40 wheels
    Fiber glass roadster '32 body

    I have my 303 rocket with tri power intake and a 3 speed trans of corvette '58

    For the front end i will want a braided frame look like "rolling Bones "
    But I don't know if i do a classic front end (leaf above I-beam ) or a suicide front end

    Anyone know what is the distance between the firewall and the I-beam on "rolling Bones" frame look like the '32 roadster 232 ?

    From what I have seen they tend to use original Ford axles. The early beam axles are 50 1/2” and the ‘37 tube axles that they also prefer are 48 1/2 inches.

    IMO... find out what your local rules are before you cut anything off the original frame...
    now is the time !
    years ago a buddy's brother said when in France he couldn't legally change the tire size, front or rear...
    best of luck to you...

    I see the article on rolling Bones châssis
    I know they use a 109,5 wheels base but I don't know where they position the front member compared the firewall
