    I believe you basically build an A-V8 but use a T body instead of an A body. Almost a bolt on deal. May have to move some mounting brackets a little

    Built around a dozen that way. Great combination and super strong. A few pics of one... Obviously just some roller tires on there.

    Norm Grabowski did it in 1952 when he was 19 years old so how hard could it be?

  9. @Paul has a build thread on his recent T that would be most helpful. Very documented and worth a read. Look in the Build Thread Index for that and others.

    I looked through my pics and can't find any! I take very few pics of my work. That particular car is currently with a friend of mine and I will drop by his place and shoot a few for you. I've built dozens of those frames and can pass along any detail/dimensions you may need.
