'42 to '47 Fords get a lot of respect in the traditional hot rod world. they are pretty cool.

The open driveline is a plus. Not much interchanges with an F1 though. . They use the Ford banjo rear axle... a cool piece. Frames are different... uses a 59A flattie or a 216 6-banger.

You won't find a lot of aftermarket tuff for them. I like that... i seldom buy much new stuff anyway... I like using vintage parts and pieces. If i had one I'd toss out those catalogs and ignore the Street Rodder ads and build it as an old style Hot Rod.

I like 'em.
