    That doose coop'll make you a fine rat rod with a little barbed wire and a few road signs. You should saw the lower 8" off to make it sit even lower... put it over an S10 frame.

    If I were you I'd probably get an s-10 frame and make it ride really nice. I think I've heard airbags and fuel injected motors drive car- show guys crazy! Shiny paint is really neato too. Chrome, billet and maybe even leather. The list could go on and on. With all that said you'll have to spend atleast 50K to make it pretty! Better save the mower!

    I'd hold out for a nicer one. Looks like it needs everything. Unless you're willing to put a lot of work into it, it just wouldn't be worth it.
  7. I got doors that will fit that. Except they are 34 doors. And they are from a 4 door. Well at least the hinges are on the right side...

    Ya got a welder?

    If he's thinking about it, you could sweeten the deal, by offering to sharpen the mower's blade.

    Guys, I think that's a '32 3 window. And they are really sought after.

    I don't have a riding lawn mower to trade but I will trade a good push mower and come over and cut his grass for the summer.

  24. Decide what you want to end up with (restoration, street rod, resto-rod?) and then price the parts and labor you need to get there. All of the '32 parts are expensive and some of the ones you need are three window unique. It may well turn out, especially in today's economy, that it is cheaper to buy a complete car than to start with a stripped body. Having said that, I will add that the Ford 1932 three window is one of my all time favorite cars.
