    IMG_2122.JPG Well Me and my dad just got done with a 27 roadster we've been building for a couple of years. it is a close copy of the roadster he built in 1959 and showed across the country as the Satan's Chariot.
    Its a steel ford body channeled 6' over a 32 frame with a 327 chevy with a powerglide trans.
    hope ya'll like it ! IMG_2123.JPG IMG_2121.JPG IMG_2120.JPG ACH]

    I love the whole look of that rod. Looks like something right out of a 60's Rod & Custom magazine.
    You nailed it!

    Wonderful work Kyle. I'm sure it will be a hit just like the original was.

    I've always loved the '26-'27 roadsters, & this one is fantastic.

    Yep... '27s fit tight, I have an old pair of Wranglers that are easier than my '27 to get into...and the '27's a HIGH BOY!
    Probably the biggest reason I got the tub. I can move the drivers seat and its back rearward, the roadster's just too 'snug'.
    Boy, Satan's got a pretty chariot there, detail is '60s Show! Meticulous work.
    Bully for the men from Texas!

    That's pretty cool, thanks. Yeah, I think you're right, I will have to chop windshield a bit. Mine won't sit that low, but close. Waiting on heim joints to make hairpins for rearend, and I should have a roller after that .

    Looks great, looks like the original went through a couple different versions and the new one selects the best aspects of each.

    Does the car have '32 winshield posts? Something about that windshield is very unique.

    yes it's a modified 32 windshield,the body has been widened 4" and I reshaped the cowl to take the later windshield
    The original car was widened 6" and channeled over a 34 frame but dad never liked the way it turned out so we did this one on a duece frame

    Wow, didn't even notice that, very well done. Is it widened 4" all the way front to back, or just at the cowl? Every inch counts in a T, seems like a worthwhile modification.
