  6. Very nice. Always impressive to see one body made out of many especially when it turns out this nice.

  7. Nice work piecing it together. So in addition to the 35 lbs of MIG wire, how many grinding and sanding wheels?
  8. Thanks a for all of the complements. It would be nowhere near what it is without the help of Bruce.

    I need some help with my rear axle. It's a 60 model 9 inch that came out of a passenger car. The flanges are for 5 on 4.5. I'm running 51 Lincoln wheels that are 5 on 5.5. There isn't enough meat to redrill. Do I have any options on maybe truck axles that will fit?

    by the time you fiddle around with finding some, shortening and resplining and redrilling, you could have these installed:

    You can have F-150 style axles shortened and resplined by Moser but you will need to find the axles and then pay shipping both ways, or a Strange street axle package with bearings and studs retails at $405 and I can do better for HAMB'ers.

  13. Ill keep that in mind Roo, But I might just hunt me up another complete rear end.

    '57 - '59 Station Wagon, Ranchero, Flip-Top Covertible, and Convertible 9" are 'big bearing' rear-ends. They are 52" and have 'pie platter' ends. They are rare as orthothics for snakes with fallen arches but can be had, and easily redrill to 5 on 5 &1/2" pattern. No narrowing needed for use with Early Fords.

    Damn, I don't mind saying that with that introduction I actually closed my eyes tight before I opened your thread expecting the horror show that had concocted in my brain... Opening them revealed something much different! Well played sir...

    Ahh, I can see this ain't your first rodeo. Another one saved from the bowels of dust and rust and lost dark holes of the garage.

    Nice work sir.

    hardest part of the entire build to this point has been the complaining " what have I let you talk me into", "I had a perfectly nice 51 Chevy truck" , and my favorite "#%€@ hot rods" from junkbike.
