The MII front ends seem to hold up. The other option I saw was a 70-ish F-150 twin I-beam. Still considering that option. I plan on building the frame from rectangular tubing. I will do the cutting and tacking and I have a friend that is a pro that will do the final welds.

Welder Series makes Weld it your self hot rod parts including Mustang II front end kits. Their catalog has about 10 pages of the M II front end info, and they have a lot of Utube info.

It seems like the consensus is to use the original chassis although I plan to redo it with the same dimensions using rectangular tubing. I plan to use a mustang II front end and a four link (maybe ridetek) rear. This seems doable. I am fair at welding but have a friend that is a pro and he will do the final welding.
One question is how to you determine final ride height?
I had planned to put in a new Ecoboost 6 but looking at a 50 coupe build it seems like a little more technical than I can do and so I am leaning towards a 302. It will be all Ford.
Thanks for any advice.
