    same idea I have for my dads 29 sedan. I haven't been able to talk to him about it since he has been in the hospital since nov 20th.

    Your Ford looks cool as hell! I've been thinking about finding a 28-32 Ford pick up and doing the same thing, except the engine would be the Brodix headed 454 sitting in my garage. Keep posting pics as you make progress.

    very true. I still stick by my envy. Someday I will build one like that. The 14 bolt idea is an awesome one in my mind, not sure if most hot rodders/rat rodders will agree, but I dig it.
