Steve and Diane Park from Bloomfield, IA are working on a 1932 Five Window Coupe and needed a chassis. They called us and here’s what they had to say about the experience:
“Jason and Team,
Just wanted to let you know I couldn’t be happier with my Pete and Jakes experience. You and your entire team made it great. Everyone was easy going, friendly and accommodating from end to end. Couldn’t ask for more. You have a great group of guys there.
Here’s a few pics after it got home.
I added a 1/2″ spacer between the engine mount and block to raise the front of the engine (1/8″ spacer under the tranny to keep the carb pad level at ride height). Raising the engine that 1/2″ let me use a standard Ford oil filter instead of a remote and still clear the steering box. To gain just a bit more clearance at the steering box, I also had to remove the outermost top plate steering box bolt and replace it with a button head Allen bolt. Raising the engine that little 1/2″ will also let me run a 17″ fan instead of a 15″. Worked great all around.
The headers on the engine are the common Speedway Motors for 28-34 chassis. Clear everything perfect.
Again thanks, I’m sure I’ll have a few questions along the way but so far everything has been great.
Steve and Dianne Park”

Drove to Connecticut last week. Got the body on the frame Sunday. Only had to slot a couple holes. Less than I expected. Body bolted down nice and the doors, windows and trunk all work as nice on your frame as they did his jig he built the body on. Your recommendations for rear wheel backspace were perfect! Engine fits nice and tight against the firewall and still plenty of room for the fan at the front. Just wish it wasn’t 95* when we sent to set the black body on the chassis! Pics attached.
Nathan enjoyed his visit. Seems pretty happy about getting a chassis built. Think he will be a long time customer.
Thanks again for your product, the craftsmanship in your chassis and the great overall experience. Will probably pick up firewall boots when I’m there in August with the Slick 60’s group. They are excited about seeing everything and the museum, too.
We sent the boot.
