I have a 36 Terraplane. It is set up as a cruiser, Mustang II, SBC-700r-S truck rear. All externals are stock looking. Only real modification is smaller headlight pods. 39 Ford t-laights, Ribbed bumpers. Wheels&tires.

SBC fits like a glove, with block hugger headers. Radiator is a GM cross flow mounted on it's side and modified filler tube. 700r trans fits in X-member with just a small amount of frame mod. Front suspension is a copy of Fatman Fabs offering. S-truck rear is hung on custom made leaf springs. This got rid of the Jeep type metal to metal spring hangers. Now has big rubber bushings. Rides great!
