1934 Ford Roadster All BMW Components


I am a new Member of this forum, I love cars, and just sold My last project ( 1961 Mercedes 190sl Roadster ). I love German cars and drive a BMW 735I that I bought as a basket case. I love the way it handles, Power etc.

My Plan/ Question Is the Practability of Building a Frame That will accept a Complete BMW 5 series Drive Train and Steering, suspension Brakes etc. Then I want to cover it all up with a 1934 Ford Roadster Body with full hood.

My vision is to have classic Good looks of the 34 Roadster with the safety, balance and agility of the BMW Foundation.

Q#1 Where is the best place to get repro Glass Bodies

Q#2 Where can I get Frame Dimension Requirements So I can taylor my Frame to Fit The 1934 Roadster Body.

Thanks For the Help

There are three names to remember when it comes to fiberglass 34's, Gibbon Fiberglass, Outlaw, and Redneck. Stay away from Heritage. Downs is a good body also, but I do not know if the make a 34.

I am about to take delivery of my 34 rolling package from Gibbon. They have given me an Oct 17th date of completion. It has been almost 4 mionths since the order was placed. He is that busy.

Your project sounds interesting, got a donor car yet?
