This is not a joke or a dream. Parisienne70 is from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The first language spoken there is French. I know that if I had to post a question in French I would not do as good a job as he has.

Building a daily driver on that original frame will be possible for a beginner if he uses many of the kits that are available. A 350 and overdrive transmission is a good way to go. As for a fuel pump he could use an electric one mounted next to the gas tank.

By the time you rebuild an original front suspension and add a disc brake kit you will be probably further ahead to go with one of the ifs kits with disc brakes. Street Rod Engineering is just one of many that makes these.

For the rear end I am not sure what to use but there are several members on the board building early 40's Mopars and maybe they will see this and give you some answers. Again several manufacturers have kits available to help you install a rear end once you decide on what you will be using.

If you have any more questions get back to us and we will see if we can help.
