Default 1951 Ford F1

Started the build on my 1951 Ford F1 project. Has a basic 2 X 3X 3/16 frame 26" wide in the front to 31" wide in the rear with a 12" rear kick-up. I have a 48" Super Bell 4" drop I-beam front axle with spring behind hairpin radius rod suicide mount for the front and Coil-over hairpin radius rod rear. The front brakes are 11" Chevy discs on Ford spindles and the rear end is a 10 bolt Posi 3.73 with stock drums.

I've posted pictures of the engine before it is a Chevy 250 6 inline with a 3 X 1 Offy manifold. I'm will build straight pipes for ot using the flanges from a header. I have a 350 TH lying around from my Chevelle so I'll use it.

I want to get a rolling chassis done and put the engine and body on the frame just so it takes up less room in the shop and I can move it around. Then I'll get back on the 50 Studebaker project.
