Progress on 37 Ford Coupe

I've checked out your forum but don't think I've made a post.
Been building a 1937 Ford 5 window pro-street coupe for the past couple years. Details of the car:

All steel body
tube frame
383 Stroker Motor
700R4 Trans
9 inch Ford 430 Gear
Budnik Wheels
17x16.50x31 Tires

Hope to have the car painted by Jan 2005

Well it's about time you posted. Are those cutouts for the exhaust on the running board sides? Cool?

38 Special, Ya the cutouts in the running boards for my exhaust
thats one of the MOD's on the car. Also custom rap-around dash
rear tail pan has been modified and the next thing is to round the top of the doors and build a custom floor console.

Thanks
Darrell

Excellent look and execution on the project. Do you have a paint scheme yet?

The car looks AWESOME Darell!
Are you doing most of the fab work yourself? It sits great, and looks like it's thought out well.
