1936 Ford Five Window Coupe Street Rod Restoration   
 

 

When I purchased this car, it was very obvious to me that she was being built for the drag strip.   There was almost no interior, a battery, gas tank , and panic switch were located in the cockpit.  I have been making changes over the years to this car, so she would be street legal, and more enjoyable to drive.

The frame is custom made with extra cross members added for strength.   The front suspension is Mustang II supported by a QA1 dual coil over shock system, and the rear suspension consist of four point traction bars, one pan hard bar, that are all supported by a QA1 dual coil over shock system as well.

The body is steel, fenders are fiberglass, the front and rear original bumpers were replaced with custom made stainless steel bumpers.

She has all the modern amenities, over head console with digital rear view mirror / HD screen that mirrors' your phone, power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning.   The drive train is a high performance Chevy 350 small block with a Holley Ultra Double Pumper, MSD Ignition, Borla exhaust, automatic GM Turbo 400 transmission with a Transco performance kit, and a Locar Shifter display.   Ford nine inch rear-end with a 2.7857142 differential, and a Detroit no spin locker.   All this power is connected with 31 spline axels turning 33 X 22 Mickey Thomson SR's, hidden in the trunk.

This web site is dedicated to the history, and the restoration of this car.  It starts with the accidental garage find, and documents the trials and tribulations that I went thru each year restoring her.
