    Heres the begining, the 38 ford whose frame is getting sacrificed for the truck. Keeping the wide 5s, the V8 60 and axles for the T or A. Got more pics coming of the frame.

    The frame wasn't as solid as I thought so I had to repair the Passenger side rail.

    I kept the x member in the frame to prevent warpage as much as possible

    The final decision is a 283 w/ a 5 speed, 8" rear and 48 front hubs/drums so I can run 35 wires all the way around. Oh yeah and not chop.!!

    I was able to use the stock pedels, and put a 5 speed in it without cutting the x member, blasting my wires right now, so I'll have the new wheels and tires this week.

    I have a borg warner in it, and I used the bolt on engine mount from speedway, I just slightly altered the stock flathead engine mounts, and it lines up great.

    Keep us updated, what are you putting out back as far as a rear end and suspension? I also have 36 Fruck but going a slightly different direction.

    The frame parts car is NOT a 37 Ford but rather a 38 Standard Ford.

    Looks like a fun project.

    I have an 8" rear. with a sedan rear spring, set-up like a stock 36, I am going to flatten out the rear crossmember to drop it about 4" to 4.5" in the rear, I made my own rear wishbones and bolted them to the stock spring mounts, which is something I havn't tried before so I may switch to hairpins, or stock bones, not sure yet.

    I am using, the stock pedels in their original position, and the Speedway 37-40 break pedel assembly bolted farther back on the x-member, I cut the new pedel arm off, and put a linkage connecting it to the stock pedel arm with 1/4 28 heim joints and all-thread. I am going to run a 67 mustang master cylinder so I can run drums all the way around. And yes these are the original mechanical pedals, I will post some pics in the next couple of days on how I am setting up the pedels.


    Oh yeah and as for paint: I am going to do High gloss Olive Green, with a cream firewall, completly stock 283 in chevy orange/black, with the original script valve covers, and brown leather interior, the truck is going to be as original as possible with only these modifications, 283, 5 speed, 4" lower,35 wires and differant bumpers.

    So you're throwing a T5 behind that 283? That's what I'm thinking of doing.. which clutch, throwout and fork did you use?
