    IMG_0400.JPG IMG_0219.JPG IMG_1540.JPG IMG_0049.JPG Hi, thought you might like to see whats been happening in my little garage in not so sunny England, UK.
    I'm on year 7 of this build as this has been built on a budget as and when money allows.
    Its a '29 body with 5" chop.
    Power is a Ford Pinto with 5 speed stick.
    Drop beam front with '56 F100 brakes.
    The rear is from an English sedan (4:11diff).
    Paint is rattle can (many cans) and the inside is leather which I stripped off a couch bought off eBay .
    Nearly done now, just sorting out a couple of things and should be on the road soon.
    Kim

    I really like that instrument panel in the center of the dash. Now I suppose it probably is from some obscure European car that unobtainable here in the "new" world.

    Best dang rattle can paint job I ever saw , nice. It’s been a few birthdays since I saw an 8 track! ok so it’s got a pinto , leave the hood shut and flip the bird at the gas stations . Do you have more early build pictures.
