I've been reading and periodically posting questions on here for a little while now. I owned an off topic mopar muscle car for awhile and just sold it to get into a 30's hot rod. I've been into early 30's Fords for as long as I can remember and finally took the plunge. I was fortunate enough to have a pretty far along project in a matter of a few days. Found an abandoned chassis engineering rolling chassis through a friend that has been sitting for about 20 years and bought it for pretty cheap. I was planning on building a roadster but then came across a 30/31 coupe body that was far too clean to pass up. I'm going to try my best to use what I have and minimize the expense. I have a 327 out of a 68 camaro and a 200r4 transmission. The chassis is powder coated; the black is nice but the silver looks cheap and is pitted. I'll be disassembling most of this and painting black or chroming. It has a forged chassis engineering 4" drop axle that I'll be drilling. I really would like to remove the front 4 bar setup and go to a more traditional looking hairpin or drilled split wishbone. I'm hesitant to open up this can of worms with the mounting bracket location but I want the look so it'll most likely happen. Rear is a ford 9 with 4.11s so the overdrive should work well. Overall plan is to try to build this somewhat traditional looking but I'm probably going to break a bunch of rules so sorry in advance. I have a pretty clear vision of how I want this to look; spoke fronts, vintage torque thrust rears on cheater slicks, 4-5" chop, drilled front axle, finned engine components with a 144 or 177 street blower. Paint will be a shade of dark grey/blue with a vintage looking brown interior. I'm sure some of this will evolve as the build progresses but I wanted to ensure I had a clear vision before I got to far ahead and wanted to shift directions. I appreciate any and all advice/help along the way.
