Registering Rods in California You all know when it comes to building "special construction" cars the pain in the rear part is registering and getting a VIN assigned. The 37 Ford cab I own doesn't have a VIN because it was on the frame of the truck. I can buy a frame with the VIN on it and modify it ect. But I have a bill of sale for the cab and want to build my own frame. Something I can look at and say, yeah I did that. I'm hoping I will be able to ...
Do you know how many parts are in a Falcon Tailgate? Answer: Alot. Do you know how many aren't available new? You guessed it: Alot. So, every time I think I have this thing DONE... I'm not. But I'm almost there! Window goes up and down and the everything fits pretty good. I need  replace the badly worn/stripped phillips head screws that secure the hinges and, unfortunately to adjust side to side... which requires removing the inner panel... AGAIN! I fit it once, ...
Chassis Here is a pic of the frame when I first mocked it up. I used the original chassis. I purchased an original front axle,spring, and wishbone. I had teh axle dropped 4 inches. I reversed the spring eyes and split the wishbone. Onthe rear I have 1935 rear radius rods. I  used a 1940 spring and flattened the original rear crossmember. I am using a 1957 ford 9 inch rear end. The wheels are 16" 1940 steel ...

1960 Ford Falcon: Time's Up Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl #12 Last night Ethan and I stayed up all night working on the Falcon - I've never spent so much back-to-back time in the garage! When it came time when we  were supposed to leave, we talked about quitting -but we were so close! We'd already added springs, shocks, distributor, belt, custom brake lines, fuel line, wiring, brakes, primed the engine, and were working to put back the ...
1960 Ford Falcon: 12 Hours to Go! Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl #11 There's only 12 hours  left of this 10-day dash to get my 1960 Falcon ready for Mooneyes.

Barring some other strange and uncorrectable ...
