    Pick up a copy of Rod & Custom April issue. Turn to page 16-17, and check out the cool 49-50 Ford Concept car. Good luck on your build.

    I narrowed the shoebox core support and fit between the framerails.

    I also made new front body mounts, and bumper mounts

    After four months of work, I needed some motivation, so I threw the wheels on to see how it looked.

    Finally, this thing is starting to look like something.
