Jerry and Jason,
Here is my third project using a Pete & Jake frame. This was a glass three window 32 that I turned into a cabriolet with a roadster windshield frame so I could have the electric windows and us air conditioning. I went with the IFS front and four link rear. This is a rare set up by the guys as it is a ZZ4 motor but using a long tail 400 trans (did this almost 20 years ago). You may notice a second cross member at the trans. Besides power windows and trunk with AC, I modified the rear fenders and built a roll pan. Well, hope you like these three and thanks to Jerry and Jason, we are enjoying them as we have never owned a trailer, so everything is driven.
This is an all steel ’32 Ford, my first attempt at chopping a top and adding hidden hinges. Also note the drip rail change as I kept eyeing my 33 Chev and rolled up metal and welded on smoother looking rails. The frame was all Pete & Jake with the Super Bell front, Plus 9 rear and Wilwood disc all around. I built up a 425hp ’63 409 with four speed, factory dual quads and posi trac. Equipped with AC, power windows and trunk, keyless remote entry and all leather interior. You may notice the ¼” thick plates added so more bolts can hold the body to the frame (32 bolts in all), not sure why my buddies call me Overkill. I use this each day as my ‘shop car’ and is a whole lot of fun.
This was a 1933 frame I shipped to your shop and they boxed it and outfitted the suspension and motor mounts. This was before anyone made an IFS for a ’33 Chev, but Jerry and the guys got it done. The all steel Master coupe won Goodguys National Champion for Homebuilt vehicle in 2006. Still in perfect condition today. 385 Fastburn motor with tuned port injection, AC, power windows and trunk, keyless remote lock system, Bowtie Overdrive trans, Wilwood four wheel disc, all leather interior. I built this car 100% at the house – outdoors under a car port!
Vince used our brakes, four bar, batwings, aluminum axle, spindles, perch bolts, steering arms, a bunch of four bar bushings and a steering wheel in his Roadster Pickup build. Vince said that the best part of the build was the front axle. Thanks Vince for using our parts, you make us proud.
Paul Barber at Horton Hot Rods wanted an unique Hot Rod so he set out to build a 1932 Plymouth Coupe. Paul used our suspension parts both on the front and rear. Nice job Paul keep up updated as this project progresses.
