I think what they are referring to is that none of the parts from the StreetBeast are the same dimensions as original 33/34 parts. They are not the same dimensions as standard replacement fiberglass parts of 33/34 fords. The StreetBeast parts will only fit on StreetBeast cars, no others.

Unless you really want to work on it, most parts, mostly body parts will not bolt or fit from a stock 34. I have different front fenders on mine and the grille shell, but it took a ton of measuring to make cuts to put different fenders on it, as cutting the new fenders to fit where the old ones were and fitting to the running boards had to be just right.

There are not a lot of people that would not want a Street Beast, IMO, after all the stuff that has been said about them. I would think that people that have them, and are missing parts, would like someone to make those parts, but I doubt if it would be a money maker.

35terraplane I'm not running the bigger wheels as I'm having enough trouble turning mine with 14" wheels and tires. I'm in the middle of changing my control arms to ones that are 5/8 of an inch shorter which will bring my wheels in 1". I have already widen my fenders 2"'s to help me turn. I'm old school if you are going to run fenders you have to have them over the wheels, no gap between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fenders.

With seventeen inch wheels I don't think that you could get the hot rod look.

front wheel size

How wide of a wheel are you guys putting on the front?
I'm wanting to out a 17x9 in front and 18x10 in back. Anyone accomplished this?

I do have all of the other hardware for the hood, just missing that 1x1 square tubing piece. Gonna have to fabricate that piece.

35terraplane I didn't go take pictures of mine, as both your cars are newer than mine and my tube is not the same on the rad. end. the end on the firwall looks the same, you can't see it but the back side has a taper.
