Thought I'd post some images of the project I've been helping my buddy build. It's a 1935 Plymouth coupe, and will have a 383 SBC stroker motor, with Super T10 4 speed, and a 4:56 posi 8.8" ford rear axle.
He wants the coupe to be a street legal altered coupe, so it wont have any front sheet metal, except for a chrome grille. The rear fenders will be narrowed 2" to get them closer to the body, and radiused to accept 12"x15"x32" tall pie crust cheater slicks.
This chrome tube axle was a transverse spring, but he wanted it low, so we made up new hairpin brackets and I had a young welder do the chrome moly weld to mount them on the axle after I located and tacked them. He did some gorgeous welds! Old brackets will be removed and coilover shock brackets aren't on the frame yet. The old spring brackets will be modified to bolt the bottom of the shocks to the axle.
We also chopped the ugly frame horns off the Plymouth frame, and fabricated '32 Ford frame horns, and boxed them in. Then added a new crossmember, and boxed that in also. The wheels are 4"x15" Cragar SS, with MT front runners. Rear wheels will be 12" Cragars.
Here's the images:
