    Is the rear end set back you asked...It does look "off" for lack of a better term. Maybe it's the shape of the fender or something. The only way to know is to crawl under there and take a good look. Take a tape measure along while you are there. Maybe something isn't straight. Anyway, it's a good looking starting point for you.

    it might just be because there is no torque tube in the car right now that that rear looks off, thats what mine is doing right now.

    those are 40-48 brakes and looks like an old dropped axle? definately an old hotrod.

    I had someone here at the shop say the same thing about the axle. The drum brakes are def hydraulic 40's brakes. Ha ha ha how the hell are you gonna change your handle. It'll be odd to call yourself vintge41 now. Sell me the '36 PU!

    Middle seat of a dodge/plymouth/chrysler minivan. Leave the seat brackets in the junkyard, but take the bolts. It's a perfect fit, with or without the stock model A seat riser.

    So life happened and I’m finally getting my coupe on the road 10 years later. The guys at Bruns kustom city are kicking butt and it should be on the road soon

    Haven’t found anything on it , i feel like it hasn’t been in the road in 50 years . Seems like it was never finished but who really knows.
