Hey Joe

I could write a book on what is wrong on this frame but I will keep it to two points. First off that is a Mustang 2 upper A arm perch see attached photos. The front frame horns appear to be way to high to the rest of the frame just by the pictures I would say 6-8 inches too high. If that is the engine mount that the wood board is bolted to a small block Ford would have the bottom of the valve covers about the height of the cowl, making the angle of the engine to be around 35 degrees to get the tranny tucked into the tunnel (impossible). The wheel base should be 106 inches for 28-32 and the front frame horn should be about 5 inches from bottom of frame, center line of the wheel to the ground with the frame sitting on the floor. My professional advice would be to sell this frame and use a frame built for your project.
