This is the build of my DREAM CAR. It started as a budget build and took off. This after dad and I finished the chassis. Figuring out engine mount location. The RUFF 3 window glass body's first meeting with the chassis. Engine mounts finished. Had to roll it out. I'm NOT running FI. (bought a wrecked Mustang for drive line) Real hot rods have 3 pedals. Think its a 39 set up but can't remember. I didn't like how the 39 pedals sit so I machined these, and had a buddy burn me out my redesigned pedal arms. I drilled and tapped both so I can grease them. Rebuilt my steering box. Surprisingly pretty easy and straight forward. Built my first header for the driver side. It was tight clearing the steering box and motor mount. World Class T5 form the Mustang donor that I swapped a S10 tail housing onto. Made my own rear ladder bars and had a friend TIG them for me. Then I took a MUCH better paying job and talked to Bebop's at the Louisville Nationals in August of 2015. They sold me when they told me to bring my chassis down and they would build the body to it. So in October it was ready. <a href="https://imgbb.com/"><img src="https://image.ibb.co/cfWkH5/image1_6.jpg" alt="image1 6" border="0" /></a> Bought a HOOSIER HOODS 25 louver hood. Had to see how it would look. After the hood was FINALLY fitted good enough for me. Took me and dad a whole week to get it close enough for my liking. Started sanding the gel coat at this point. My main dude Jack, my son helping with disassembly so we could start body work. <a href="https://imgbb.com/"><img src="https://image.ibb.co/i9P5H5/image1_9.jpg" alt="image1 9" border="0" /></a> Jack doing his part on the fire wall.

This is my first time ever blocking a entire car. <a href="https://imgbb.com/"><img src="https://image.ibb.co/eYRkH5/image1_17.jpg" alt="image1 17" border="0" /></a> Chassis came back from my buddy all pretty. Time for assembly. After 4 coats of heavy primer, NO finger prints, and much deliberation I decided to have my friend paint the body. He has a better shop and I haven't sprayed anything gloss in 20 years. Been hammering away on the chassis. Dad came over to help me finish the exhaust. Without his help and knowledge this car would have never been possible. The tail light buckets in the sun. Saw a SOHIO sign at THE AMERICAN SIGN MUSEUM and the color was almost EXACT. So that's where the SOHIO SPECIAL came from. Gonna have 2 EXTREMELY TALENTED brothers I know letter up the dash. Then I got THE CALL. My buddy was buffing and was about halfway finished when the HIGH speed on his buffer went out. So he is waiting on it to be fixed. The chassis is ready for them to meet. That's where I am on my DREAM CAR as of right now.
