The rear frame horns were cut about 3 inches
I used the IPhone portrait effect
I remember the Rod & Custom article about Joe Mac's green chopped sport coupe about 1970 - ish. Have loved the idea ever since. A chop that maybe even I could do! (not likely). Anyways, love the idea. That coupe turned up on Ebay with a flathead a week or two ago. But I was $40000 short.
Super cool , Thanks for sharing
BTW, I like your flags. Lots of history behind them.
You guys are killing it

The welds and rivets are pure artwork to me. I admire your talents.
Incredible work. Car porn for sure. What is the bolt pattern on those wheels, please?
Joe. How many guys are working on this? Or are you flying solo?
Myself and buddy Chris are doing all the work.
Bolt pattern on the Plymouth wheels are 5 x 4 1/2 so they bolt up nicely to my early Ford 9 inch.
Wow, very nice.
I like the headlights up high, my cars been on the road about a year now and that was one of the first ideas I had for my car to set it apart. You'll be surprised how many people hate it and feel the need to express to you that they hate it haha.
The only other car I see running around like that is another guy here in Texas with a really tough 32 3 window.
But I've noticed here on the hamb I've seen about 3 or 4 cars recently running them high, it's catching on I guess, in old pictures you see it often.
I was told by very mature fellow that they ran the head lights at stock hight as the coppers didn't notice them as often... makes sense.
Awesome build. Great work!
Thanks man, I actually took a few inches out of the headlight bat to fit the 28-29 braces. So it also dropped the lights down as well. Doesn’t sit very hig anymore. Looks great!
You must be talking about Roger and his 3w. We kinda stole that idea from him. I really need like the look other than frame mounted lights.
Extremely impressive work, really looking forward to seeing more progress as i will be digging into mine, may have some questions.. a lot! Well done!
Thanks man , always happy to help a fellow rodder out.

Slowly but surely!
