    So, my father in law lost interest in this car and decided to give it to my wife and I. So.... I'm not gonna say no!

    So here is what we have. It's a 1942 Ford Business Coup. It has a Fat Man front end, Granada rear end, mild 351 Windsor and a bunch of other parts that I haven't even gotten to yet. He was going for a Street Rod approach, but we are leaning towards a 50's- early 60's style hot rod style. Anyway, here it is as it sits right now.

    I'll keep the mustang 2 front end. It's already there. The fenders will hide it anyway.

    Wow! I'm gonna send a link to this thread to my wife's dad. He did give me her hand in marriage...so I figure he owes me. Just sayin.

    Enjoy the build and make it yours!
