Well, I'm one of those people that has basically no idea what I'm doing and no business building a hot rod, but I'm determined to blindly stumble my way though this anyway, with the help of the literally endless amount of information on here. We're moving cross-country in January, so I have three months to finish up this chassis in preparation for a nice west coast body. I think it'll end up being a roadster since that's what the wife likes, although I had a coupe body in mind when I started this. This isn't going to be the most fun build thread to look at, I'm working out of my parents' garage that is piled with miscellaneous junk and these photos are going to be messy and embarrassing, but a lot of people have built way cooler cars with way less so I can't complain about it. The parts collecting started about a year and a half ago with a Riley Automotive frame set up for an SBC. I was inspired by this car and wanted to do something in the vibe of this, with the kickup in the back and an SBC. This is the first car with overhead valves I've ever owned. Like I said, the original plan was for a coupe, but honestly I'll probably just see a body I like for the right price and throw that on impulsively. I don't care, I just want a hot rod. This is an ultra-budget build, and most of these parts I've had laying around or was able to get for free/very cheap. The car will have, in no particular order: 1962 Chevy rear end, ladder bars Model A axle, spring & perches (for now), reverse eye main leaf Round back spindles with 1935 wire wheels up front Steelies on back (trying the mismatched look here, okay?) Mustang T5 behind a Jeep CJ bellhousing (the most expensive part of this build other than the frame.......) Late 40s (?) GM (?) steering column that I'm pretty stoked about 1969 307 motor Prewar mystery dash picked out for me by Gene Winfield at Hershey a few years ago I have my work cut out for me with this time frame, but most of the big stuff to get the chassis and drivetrain finished up is already there and I just have to get off my lazy ass and actually do the work. Here's how the project sits now. I'm waiting on drums from a friend to get the front end off the jack stands.
