Yea I that is about exactly how the conversation went so hopefully will start building mine soon. I also have a s10 steering column that has tilt and column shift that would be perfect just need to figure out if there is any oem gearboxes I can mate to the frame and then she can atleast get power steering also. Anybody figured out what gearboxes hook up to these cars fairly easy.

In the middle of a '48 Ford Coupe. I am died in the wool Blue Oval. I went 5.0 FI, 4R70W w/M II front- disc/drum. I recently finished my '63 Fairlane SC 347 stroker with a narrowed 8.8 trac lok rear, so I used the open '63 rear in the coupe since it's going to be a cruiser. 57" wide fit great under the '48.
