Well, I for one object to that term.....and I do not have one..
But the term is here to stay........like Rat Rod ....

I only build real Henry Ford original body cars......
I am patient and have been persistent......and throw in a touch of LUCK...

My steel 32 3W......I chased it for almost 10 years.....but I had a real 32 Ford roadster to keep me busy...Chased the roadster for almost 10 years too....
NOW if I wanted another car ( say like a 41 Willys coupe ) I would most likely go the reproduction fiberglass route.....I have not got 10 more years to chase and HOPE I could find one......or afford one if I did. Anyone who has ever built a fiberglass rod........would know that it is more difficult to build one than a original Ford body Rod....

IF you start with a GOOD original Ford body...... you just have to restore the body and update the frame to take the new driveline..... With a reproduction body and frame......almost nothing from the restoration suppliers will fit the repro body...and you have to be creative......Some succeed and many do not......
