Hey guys, I've been wanting to build a traditional T for a long time now, but I'm on a budget (who isn't...) It would be a no frills, no chrome type of build...chopped windshield, skinnies on steelies or chrome reverse, painted front axle, bare bones interior... I see that frames can be had from Spirit Cars for $600 and bodies for $700. For the frame, it seems like a lot of engineering value for the money, especially since all the brackets and mounts are already welded. I don't think it pays to try to build it myself for that money... I would be building on an extreme budget. Fabbing/welding a lot of my own stuff, (but not the frame), scouring junk yards for parts, etc. Possibly purchasing a donor car for the drive train (ie: wrecked 80's mustang or similar) engine, trans, rear, brakes, etc. What do you think? Can this be done for $5000 or less? Is this a realistic goal? Also, I live in New York. How difficult is it to register a home built car? Thanks!
