    kinda getting off topic but here is pics of the 32 chrysler. i have been thinking about cutting it down and turning it into a 5 window coupe i found some good quarters that the body line can match up but im still not sure if i want to turn it into a coupe or just leave it a 4dr

    Cool Chrysler, saw a 32 Nash this weekend that uses dual cowl vents also. Very nice. I retract my statement about fitting in. But I think you know what I meant. If we were all the same, we'd all be driving Black Model T's, with no modifications. LOL. Looking forward to the chrysler build.
     
  8. How hard is it to find a dropped early Ford front end kit?!?!?!

    :rolleyes:

    also i found a guy near me that has a 1930 ford front suspension thats complete but what all do i need to be looking for to make sure its not junk??? thanks for the help
     
  13. The '30 front suspension might provide an axle, wishbone & leaf spring. The wishbone is shorter than later wishbones though. The spindles & brakes wouldn't be of any use.

    You do realize a 32 Chrysler is a pretty rare bird? I would build a nice 4 dr HOTROD and not cut it into some abortion of a coupe.
     
  15. 1932 saw 6cyl 116 "wb bus coupes,2-4 pass coupes,2-4 pass conv coupes. ........8cyl 125"wb 2-4 pass coupes,2-4 pass conv coupes,5 pass coupes...135"wb Imperial 2-4 pass coupes...146"wb conv coupes. These coupes ranged from $865-$3,295 for the Imperial. I got this info from the Encyclopedia of American Cars from 1930 on. Hope this helps.
     
  16. I guess I got a bit off topic but interesting just the same and no I couldn't a picture of a 5 window.
