Salvaging a T telephone booth street rod
I recently purchased up a 27 T Katrina victim that has some water damage. It did not get flooded from below, but the blowing rain filled up the 350. Since it wasn't running, the previous owner left it sitting in the weather for the year and a half since the storm. The body has a padded top that leaked and now there are some newly sprouted rust blisters on a rather nice 27 body.
There is a Mustang II front end that needs some TLC. I think a nice steering column and new routing to the rack & pinion box is in order. Since it has the IFS, I'm considering some stock looking fenders & getting it lower to the ground.
The top has not been chopped, but that might be a future modification.
What it is now:27T steel body, fiberglass trunk lid, looks like a 29 boxed frame, IFS w/disk brakes, ford 9" w/drum brakes, drowned 350, 350T trans.
If anyone has any ideas to share on a T build, I'd love to hear.
