36 ford coupe

I have just bought a 36 ford coupe and it has the straight axle in it. It has been changed to a 37 up split wishbones with juice brakes. I want to install a mustang II front end. I am thinking about progressive automotive has anybody had any experience with his stuff??

Thanks
Kevin

Never heard of them. I would tend to go with someone that has been in the business for a long time. Heidts, Fatmans, Chassis Engineering. Check my avatar. That 36 5 Window has a Fatmans Stage III. He is now offering it with stainless upper and lower control arms for the same cost as unpainted steel and choice of air bags or Coil Overs. If you have any questions on your build, send me a PM. I have been tinkering with this car since 1960 and know a little about them.

Well, I've never seen the "review" section before, so I tried to leave a review for Bob and Progressive, but it told me I need to be a member ? ? ?

Anyhow, Progressive is a great company to buy from and Bob will promptly answer any questions you may have. I have his "Sweet-Ryde" C-4 Corvette front clip under my '47 Ford Coupe and it's slick. Actually, the cost was less than a MII front end after snagging the required C-4 pieces from an E-Bay member.

According to their website, they have been in business since 1976. http://www.progressiveautomotive.com/history.htm

Also on that 'history' page:

"In 1985, We were honored with the prestigious title of "Manufacturer of the Year", by the National Street Rod Association. We also introduced 34-35 Chevy Standard and 37-39 Chevy chassis."

Of course, none of that tells about their engineering and quality, but that's where these discussion threads can be really helpful.
