Am I reading your post correctly that you might scratch build the frame and body? If so, here's a bit of bedtime reading on how this '31 was built https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ournalid=17166 There are also a number of other scratch builders on this site and you can find them in the Project Journals or by using the search feature.

WELCOME to Hotrodders.com



Here is a photo of a set of original 1932 Ford frame rails ... going into a frame jig ... to become a 32 Ford Hot Rod chassis. As you can see from the photo ( and the chassis specifications already posted ) the 32 frame has a lot of curves and varying widths to them. It would take a very talented person to fabricate a correct set ... A reproduction set of rails are only about $700 ... and have all the correct curves, stampings and bends.

Click on the above link for some chassis construction photos ... of my 32 Ford project.

Here is a photo of my 32 Ford roadster ... that I have owned for almost 30 years ...


Again WELCOME ...
