My first Hotrod was a 30 model A. I built that when I was much younger and EVERYTHING had to be fabricated, not like today when the UPS man brings stuff everyday. Sveral tools you also have today is the Internet, where almost anything you need to know is out there. I biult my coupe, boxed the frame, Hung a 1956 Chevy rear under it. Built a killer dstroked .030 over 400 for it and hooked it up to a Muncie 4 speed. Cragers, rack and pinion, seats and steering column from a 66 Mustang, So that tells you how long.ago. Get your vision what you want, do what you can do and take it one piece at a time. I hope you have the room finances and patience to follow through. There is nothinglike that first time around the block. Good luck, post pictures and ask questions.
