    32 Build

     



    Friend of mine is building a 32 Ford Roadster from the ground up. I am working as best as I can with him, learning about building Hot Rods in the process. The absolute starting point is the fiberglass body moldHe has completed the molding of the body and demanded it as well as the necessary panels that go with it. We got the frame from American Stamping in Olive Branch Mississippi. He has a Flathead for it and will most likely go with a Ford 8” rear end.

    The first mold came out extremely well. We de molded it and were extremely impressed with the results.

    American Stamping does a fantastic job on the frames. They are great to work with. Kory has a lot of experience building frames and restoring them.

    The front end components are en route, getting the body on the frame was a rush. Getting the Flathead ready is going to be an interesting journey.

    So a few more shots of the 32 as we are awaiting parts. We will soon lay the glass on the 34 3 window.

    A highboy with a straight front axle, doesn't get any better than that. though I'm not a fan of drilled front axles.
