As a Moderator here.....let me WELCOME YOU HERE....

I suggest doing a search..........for Mustang II front ends......
Several manufacturers make kits and stubs.

A little advice......

Welcome to the forum. From your post I get the impression this whole modified car thing is new and unexplored territory for you.
This is my advice....
Tell the customer you'll have to pass on this project. Then buy a car for YOURSELF and do the tricks to it for YOURSELF with YOUR money. Make YOUR mistakes on YOUR project and YOUR time. The experience gained on YOUR nickle is much more rewarding. The added benefit is that YOU will be producing a rolling advertisement for YOUR skills, and if YOU paint the company name on the doors YOU can deduct it as advertising expense.
Don't use someone else's hard-earned cash and harder to reclaim time while you're on a learning experience. Remember, if the first customer is an unsatisfied one, you might never see another. It is not good business to step off into this new world without the expertise and hands-on experience which is best learned on YOUR own project.

52 chevy hard top project

I'm in the process of completing my from on my 52 cgevy hard top. I went witht fat man stage four mustang II ultral low front end and with a 1969 frod 9inch rea/ air ride shockwave on the rear. Let me tell you its very time consuming if you are doing the work your self from frame to body. Its well worth it though as long as you do a lot of reasearch and do it right.
