Firstly may I say thanks Anders and pay my respect to the endless talent and knowledge I have found looking through your pages---good work boys. My name is Phil Norman and I'm a Marine Engineer and a certified Welder, playing with engines and fabricating ferous and non ferous things for 28 years. I have 4 sons that are getting to that age (engines/cars) of admiring hot rods etc. I have Chrysler engines / gearboxes / 8.8" & 9 " diffs begging to be used or collecting dust. I have ample steel sections and stainless at hand, I can get a fibreglass body for a good price and I beam front end, plus permission of the wife - lol.
Thanks again.

google search CCR california custom roadster.. they have sold the same kits for about 30+ years.. plus the plans you build your own.. proven plans, not "make it fit" kinda stuff..

Having a good table or flat floor is essential to building one of thier frames. I had some plans here, seems the whole frame weighed in at 113lbs.. plus suspension.

I had a pinto front end on one of thier frames.. Never saw it through, sold it unfinished. www.speedwaymotors.com is one of the oldest speed shops in america.. I like them and they are fast..

A buddy bought a 4.6 4valve engine for his Tbucket .. now that thing is about four feet wide.. That'll be interesting. He has wanted to borrow my aluminum anodizing kit for it.. I told him sand cast parts anodize terribly but he don't believe me..

I got a 1919 touring car cowl on the wall here, and a wood buck next to it.. I wanna a c-cab.. There is a place in Arkansas that sells the C-cabs as cheap as the materiels... They ebay a lot.. Another older company, thou only 20 years or so..

I can't find a web link to them, but look for "Total Performance" owned by Micky Lauria, they have quite a few kits/parts for the T buckets. If you have access to Streetrodder magazine, they usually have an advertisement in there.

Fiberglass, bondo, putty, spot putty.... na na... All has a place in this world..

A fiberglass patched car brings $2500, a all steel patched car brings $25,000...
A correct built car brings $60,000, a streetrodded car brings $6,000..

So it's all about money..

Where ya at? I got a cowl hanging on the wall.. kinda fragile.. but copyable.. Since H-ford didn't want to put the carriage builders out of work, he sold trucks cowl and frame only, anything you build from period materiels would be correct. No plywood and fiberglass.. too easy..

Of course you could use that fiberglass body for a buck.
