Budget Hotrod builds.... what does something like this cost???

As I have never gotten into this before, I'm just wondering what building a hotrod costs. I want to build an early 30s hotrod (plymouth or ford coupe), and I know the stock frames can be used when building them as hotrods, BUT, what if I have just a body? I mean, on average, how much does your basic frame cost to build or have built? After I have a frame... I would need suspension.

Essentially the only thing that I know about, cost wise, is about engines. I know how to estimate the cost of a motor depending on what I want to build, but that's it.

I guess the main question would be... for your every day hotrod... how much does a rolling chassis usually cost???? I know there will be many answers to this, and some people may think what I'm asking is dumb, I'm just looking for esitmates.
