    I decided I needed a change and Chris just so happened to tell me about this Tudor...and it was close. So I went to look at it and it was decent. A few dents and dings, but not bad. To make things worse, it was an early one and I have a weakness for early 32 stuff. I talked to my wife and next thing I know it's following me home. I've missed my fordor from the minute it was getting loaded into the new owners trailer, so the plan will be a similar build parts wise. This is my first Tudor and am really excited about having big doors! I have big aspirations to get it going quickly... but with 2 attention loving kiddos, will see how much time I can actually throw at it.

    I got rid of the parts I didn't think I would need and picked up some parts that would speed up the process.

    Went and visited @Kustomkid and punched some louvers in the hood.

    and then last week I took a staycation so I could stop fretting over how much to ruin the nice original sheet metal. After I test fit the back, I almost had an oh no I chopped it too much moment, but I'm diggin it once the front of the roof was back on. I love the chop on Sam Lytle's sedan. So bitchin.

    I absolutely love the head light treatment on Brian Bass's roadster, so I did something similar for the Tudor.

    I'm hoping to get the chop all finished welded before to long. I'm hoping I can roll it out and get a looksy before the snow flies. Maybe it will be running this spring?? I will update more when I get some more progress.

    Congrats brother! It's looking fantastic so far! Is that a chassis engineering x member or elpolako?

    Thanks Matt! It’s elpolako/ industrial chassis. I was gonna make/ modify an x setup similar to his X, but all the engineering is done and its gonna save me hours and hours in the garage, so I just decided to use his. Really happy with it and can fine tune it to my needs. Highly recommend it. I’m gonna add some C style boxing plates to the front and rear, make mounting points for the suspension and be basically done.

    Family hot rods are the best. I use the hell out of my A Tudor. It gets driven more than my 32 5w.

    Are your wheel cylinders swapped side to side, or is it the angle of the photo. They look like they are pointing forward

    It’s got a few warts but overall it’s pretty decent.
    I’ve got a soft spot for Tudors. I grew up in my mom and dads hemi powered sedan.
