Rod parts for a 37 Pontiac

I have just bought a stock 37 Pontiac slant back 2 door sedan and am planning on putting modern running gear on it. Does anyone know who carrys the Mustang II front ends that go onto a Pontiac or would I have to front clip it? Plans are to put a V8 in it with auto tranny, PS and PB. Anyone have any ideas?

Check with FatmanFabrications. He has M-II setups to fit just about anything.

Nobody I know of has a kit specifically for Pontiac's. I don't know if a chev kit would fit but Heidts has a universal kit:

I want to rcommend TCI, because they made my Mll for my car and special built the width to fit it specificly, and they didn't charge any extra for it, but you should call them and talk to see if they might have what you need. Don't have there number off hand but even summit carries their stuff. Good luck

and welcome aboard

I have a 37 Pontiac and used a Fat Man Sub frame for the front end. Remember that the old Pontaic is ~ 2" wider than the mustang II front end so some adjustments to the rack will have to be made. Also if you stock lower arms you will have to fabricate brackets to hold the struts. Remember the centetline of the struts rear piviot point must be inline with the pivit point of the lower A frame or you will have bad bump stear.
