U got skillz bro!!!!
Great job. I am just putting on the final touches on my 49 Shoebox. I started on mine in 03 and after many setbacks I am finaly going to be able to take it on it's first cruise.Seeing yours almost makes me want to start chopping. Just registered with HAMB last evening and not ready to insert photos . I am installing power steering useing a Volvo setup with my Flathead V8 and having problems locating an adapter. Any suggestions ? Shoebox Rules. Chuckster49

Here´s the same speaker grill in Busters car
From TRJ #36
Well done mate...that's a top job!
ford cortina back light?just joke!
Nice detail with the speaker grille! Windows look great too Andreas!
A test fit, need some more work but atleast it´s a start....
NICE! I can't wait to get to that stage... still a ways away though. They look really good Andreas!
Wow looks great
Good looking Andreas
Wow not sure how I missed this before. the metal work you have done is top notch. usually I am the same about a car going across the pond, but not this one. wish my 49 was half as nice as this and I think mine is pretty nicely built. would love to see more of this build or if it's painted by now. keep up the good work and the insipration to us all.
Nice work, Great looking shoebox.
looks good bro..
Well, not mutch have happen on the car since spring 2010
We got a son, built a new house and garage......no time for the shoe!
also bought a 1936 Roadster so when the garage is finished ill have two
big projects to work with
Here´s a pic i found here, think it is cruisinbruce´s pic?
Anyway it shows the sidewindows.
And out driving with my friends
Nice car, you and your friends'.
Some updates, the rearend is the only thing i haven´t rebuilt in the chassie because ill searched for a 8" with better gears.... and on the way home from a show in Norway the pinion-nut gave up on the old rearend!
this was 2 years ago, i put the pices together and continue my search for a better rearend, found a 8" 3.00 from a Granada and now it´s on its way to the shoebox leafsprings!
the old one
old (black) and "new" 8" (Rusty and red)
the leafsprings on granada is 2.5" and shoebox is 2" so i have to narrow the spring mounts
wow great job!!! I love the studie headlights!!!!
You got awesome skills! Definitely gives me inspiration on my shoebox!
Real sharp looking
The 8" rearend works fine, the 3.00 gears made good
here out for a testdrive..... the car looks cool without skirts and caps!
One step closer........
Buster had an antenna on his car
Hosted on Fotki
and now i have one just like Buster
Thats pretty cool!
For sure looking great..
This car is sharp man. Nice work.
That is one very fine Shoebox Ford ! I really love the tail light sections that you did . That chop is sooooo damn perfect ! I have to admit , that has to be one of the finest Shoebox Fords I have seen in a very long time .
You are truly a gifted master craftsman at the metal work you have done . Excellent work ! A very well thought out and executed job !
So......what are your plans now ?
