    Here comes the build thread about my ´32 roadster project.

    A while back as some of you already know I had a thread about my coupe which was done in the spring of 2014. - http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/martin-ford´32-5-window-build.621405/

    Bare with me but this project is not a true traditional build with every single part made before 1955 or so, somehow it will stay sort of in a traditional look and most important the plan is that it turns out the way I want it . Hopefully some of you finds it interesting and inspiring =)

    The project is based on a 32 Brookeville body, a torsion bar set up chassis powered by a 409 chevy with a T-5 transmission . 37 front axle and a Halibrand V8 rear axle

    Ive been working on the chassis for a while and its a slow but fun project , trying to fabricate as much as possible is time consuming.

    Thread post´s will be from the beginning to today´s date and hopefully all the way to the day when its done.
    There is lots of pictures on Instagram for you who can´t wait . search for "tmfcracing"
    Cheers Martin

    That crossmember under the engine is Wow for sure, actually it's all very nice. You have a good eye for proportion and scale. I'll enjoy watching this as I did your other build.

    That's quite a tasty looking chassis, I used those stainless rod ends on my roadster also for hairpin attachment to batwings and ladder bar rear attachment points.
    I like them a lot, mine came from Art Morrison. Is that where you sourced yours?
    Your time and detail has been well directed.
    I've always wanted to say this about a deserving project: Subscribed.
