Default 1933 chevy tudor sedan aka Project Copper Tone!

So, I got the ford and I got the chevy Tudor. Time to get to work. Plans are, use the existing frame but box it in along with z notching the rear end. Gonna run a ford 360 from a 76 f-150 backed by a 4 speed from a 73 f-150 2wd and a ford 9 inch narrowed down. The wiring harness will be from the f-150 and I'll see what else I use from the f-150. Anyhow, pictures are worth a thousand words so...

Not gonna run fenders or a hood. Bare bones rod if y'all know what I mean. I got lucky as the guy normally doesn't sell anything and I got this car at a steal at 800 bucks. The lot is awesome. So many coupes and convertibles. I had a hard on walking through his place.

Hi Endicott_jb. Nice choice! but you walked right by a shoebox coupe on the passenger side of your Chevy and just look at what you left behind the Chev, a Minneapolis Moline,[possibly a GBD no less]. I'm one of those shifty characters that look in the background of pictures a lot, just like skull. Go man go, you got a real nice start there.

I didn't walk right past them all. This guy normally doesn't sell anything as he's a bit of a collector/hoarder/builder. I knew what I was looking for and because of that I'm sure he trusted me more than most others. A lot of people stop buy but he never sells. I just got incredibly lucky is all. Anyhow, hoping that I can go back tomorrow and pick it up. There are lots of places like this out here. You just gotta keep your eyes open.

Really good start to a rod.
I'd like to ask why a 360 ford. The Ford doesn't raise the question, just the 360 part
Do you know something I don't, about that engine

Nothing special about the engine at all other than I already have it. It is a torquey engine though. And with the 2 barrel carb that's on it, with the transmission, and rear end gears(even turning 31"x12.5 tires) it gets between 18 and 20 mpg on the highway. In a lighter car, it'll do pretty damn well.

That mileage is better than any I've had. I figured it was because you already had it.
Build on !!!!!!!!!
