    So since my divorce is finally over with and I have started building cars again, this is what I am modeling my new build after. I fell in love with this car the moment I first saw it.

    Thats one of my all time favorites too. If I ever get another early T, I would love to build something like that too. Look forward to seeing this build.

    Looking good! I can see from your build pics that the body has a bit of hotrod history. Is anything known about that??

    The body is from a 1960's altered that was found in a barn about 10 miles south of where i live, I have tried to find info on it, but no luck yet. It has been changed so many times over the years, all I know about it is that someone turned the drag car into a street car in the early 70's and gave it the orange paint job and a 327. they also cut the roll bars off and modified a few other things. the 327 was pulled in the late 70s and the car sat in a field until the 90's when it was moved to a barn with a bunch of other cars that the gentleman I bought it off of owned. Its original color was Green and red the chassis and most of the parts have flakes of red still on them. I have no desire to use the chassis due to all of the mods that have been done to it over the years, but the story will remain in the body.
