  3. Hey @silent rick ...Just a bit of info. The first hot rod I ever built when I was a young wip was a 39 Chevy with a 241 Dodge hemi with a Weiand 2 duce manifold. It was bored to 272 ci balanced and had a Crower cam. It went like hell all things being equal back in the day. Here's a couple of pics.

  6. I posted this photo and a friend was busting balls and said I needed a steam locomotive to match my car, so that go me thinking that my 41 has that cow catcher looking grill.
    Anyone care to put the cab forward of my truck onto that train, so my truck becomes the "steam locomotive" he wants to bust my balls about ?
    Thanks as always

    Thanks.
    Picking up a 2wd jeep
    Thinking about a little daily cruiser.
    Looks like it could stand a little more drop or slightly taller rear tires with a tad more rear drop to fit the wheel well.
    Shorten the frame ahead of the grill. Maybe push the front tire forward a tad.
    I have a WS frame for a CJ3B. It’s around 3 inches shorter. Super easy “chop”
    Thanks again. Gives me a great visual.

  15. You might have some success with the Imperial grill but I can't envision any scenario where the Lancer grill would work....

    If you decide against the two grilles you mentioned, here is another idea for you:
    1954 Buick grille in the '53. Will have Buick devotees scratching their heads!

    I picked up a new suv that needs an attitude adjustment.
    Can you shop wizards do 2 mods for me? Stance change.
    1) 5” down in front and 2” down in rear
    2) 5”down in front and 4” down in rear and add fender skirts.

    I think to make it look right with skirts, the rear needs to be dropped more. It can’t have a nose down rake.

    Thank you. Yes, I plan on getting rid of the wood. Looks much better. I like those TT wheels but I don't see a 5x5.5 BC listed.
