I've been working on the "Exquisite" 27 Coupe build but have recently come to a spot where I need to get some vital...expensive parts. I thought I would put it on the back burner until and build my 23 traditional T bucket. The body is a fiberglass body which I got when I helped a friend going through the big "D" move. He gave me the body as payment almost 12 years ago. It has been gaurding a tree in my back yard since that time and has been a huge conversation piece. I figured it was time to give it respect and put it on the road. I am not sure what I'm going to use as the rear yet...a turtle deck or a 20" pickup bed. I'll cross that bridge in a couple months when I get to it. I am not a big fan of "glass" bodies so if I come across the same style body in metal don't be surprised if the glass gets retired back to the garden and metal lives on. The frame is going to be a not so traditional tube frame built from 2x3x 3/16th tubing. I say its not so traditional since I plan on kicking the frame out just behind the fire wall similar to a model A frame. The rear kickup will go straight of the widened rails giving it a few more inches in width in the rear. The cross members I'm going to make out of retangle tubing. I have dreamed up an idea to make it clean and simple. I just hope it works. I have not come across any built like this yet so I'm excited to see how it turns out. The front end is a Speedway tube with a six inch drop. It is currently a spring behind design but I am thinking about changing it to a spring over design to give me a few more inches of clearance in the front. I think I have also located a pair of 56 Ford backing plates, hubs, and drums for the front. The rear end is going to be a Ford nine inch with a spring behind design. I am planning on running a 283 sbc with a 350 turbo transmission. My goal is to build a short wheel base, safe, fun, and different (but the same) little car. I hope this is a short build but I will see how it goes since I will only be able to build a few days a week. I will also document my build here on the Hamb both for motivation and for guidance in case I get myself in a bad spot. Thanks for reading along and if you are curious or interested please follow along. If you have suggestions, comments, or questions feel free to speak up and I'll try and explain how my crazy mind works.
