nice weld job
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.
how the hell did i miss this thread???? wow its looking good! keep it up!
It sits nice
Wow! Great job so far.
here is my '51 with S10 clip/ not Z'd- with stock springs and 2" dropped spindles-no drive train installed-205/75/15 set up with reversed 6" black rims-roller red rims/donut type spare tires/ gives that drag look (Ha!)-4" blocks in rear-a few hundred pounds of engine/trans will drop it down plenty-just to give a visual-have most everything to bag front, but do that some other time maybe
That's gunna be sweet!
Keep us posted.
I put a front fender on, and the cad caps, just to check things out.
I'm digging the look.
Now, for some fun.
Who wants to make the first cut?

Once again, major progress and looking great! Those Caddy caps and red wheels are the Bee's Knees.

Car looks great. Can I ask why the S10 clip over a Mustang II?
