Radically lowered chopped '32 Ford 5-window with Nailhead power
(More pictures below)
I'm a chronic purchaser of aftermarket parts, often buying bits I have no immediate use for if they look cool. One of my favorite suppliers is ThePartsBox.com in Australia. I live in the USA but they give excellent service and getting stuff from them is quick and easy thanks to an excellent website.
Among my parts stash from them was a very extreme looking chopped AMT Deuce 5-window resin shell which just called out to be slammed as low as possible in the current "Contemporary Traditional" style. Here's the lowdown on the completed build. The WIP can be found here: http://www.modelcars.../span></strong>
