Hello everyone !
Some history ;
The car has been in the family for 29 years and has made it past the 50's and 60's modifications . Now my father In-law and myself have decided to get it going again . I have built many cars (1960's) and have the knowledge and skills to start this project . I am rusty on street rod stuff and the latest cool thing to do . Keep in mind this car has been modified so much it will always be considered a Rat Rod . We want it to be safe and doll it up as much as possible .

I plan on mounting a frame mount master cylinder and fabing a new steel firewall . I will also need to raise the motor mounts and cut floor for transmission tunnel . The oil pan was very low to the ground and with new lowered front end the motor and trans will need to be raised. I have ordered a new complete SS front end with cross steering . I am currently in the process of cutting out the old boxed metal ( thin ~ 1/16" ) and replacing it with 1/8" steel . Please see my webpage for the latest pictures . http://www.thefish.150m.com/1932.html

Thanks for the welcome !


I am only 5'6" so should not be to much of a issue. Just in case I removed the gas tank that was behind the seat so I can move the interior back ~ 3 to 4 " I was thinking of putting a fuel cell in the trunk area .
