    Took some measurements to see how much lift / drop i get.
    from center wheel well to floor on lift is:
    24.5in Rear and 29in Front
    At its lowest point measurements are:
    15in Rear and 21in Front
    so.. Total travel is:
    9.5in Rear and 8in Front

    Here she is at Full Lift.

    How does she ride at full height ???
    Or do you have a "set" ride height that is optimal.

    She rides good at almost any heaight. Aside of the Steering. She is hella loose on that. But i got the rebuild kit, so i gotta put that in. The rear wheels are a tight clear so you just gotta take your turns slow and level or the tires would rub in back.

    Everytime I see one of these it makes my heart race. I'm almost 70 and I hope I can finesh the T-Bird I'm working on so I can sell it and find me a shoebox Ford.

    I dont know your video was kind of lacking compared to "Baggin on a budget" video... Probably the best video of the year.....

    I agree! :) There's a LOT of shoebox's out there and they seem to be pretty affordable compared to other more popular classics. a T-Bird is a beaufitul car too though! I love my shoebox to death, but i also love 53-54 Chevys, 54-57 Buicks and Super 88 Olds'. Sometimes i wish i wasn't so addicted to cars. I would probably have a Savings account

    Nice box. Looks damn sexy the way it is. I dont know if you have talked about it at all yet... but please dont chop it. I plan to read the whole thread later.

    Dig the thread. Those wheels are awesome - they have an illusion of motion, makes the car look like it's moving when it's not!

    I've got a Fordor I've had forever (literally since I was 5), and I'm thinking about chopping it, much like the '51 Bob Bleed chopped in his thread. Not many chopped Fordors around. Your car is making me rethink that... Hmmm, what to do?

    everybody has their opinion. and the people that do good chops end up with some mean looking shoebox's. my welding skills and metalwork aren't up to par enough to even attempt it. i love the traditional blend with the lowered look. good luck with your shoe though. i am in Love with mine at this point. everything i do on mine i usually photoshop my ideas to get a good reference of if my idea would look good or not, then i execute. :)

    Man thank you for not. At least not yet. Its refreshing to see a box with its top intact.
