Reworked the tunnel and added the accent piece for the rear tunnel.
I really didn't like the "Euro" look of the Wagon Rod dash, but the shape was something I thought I could work with. I made sides for the center section of the dash that flows back into a console out of .030 sheet and covered the top with .010. I'll laminate that with a second layer later.
In place with the seats, everything fits well.
I still can't believe how perfect a fit the dash is. I still have to cap the ends of the dash, but that will have to wait until the door panels are figured out.

A little more work on the interior, swapped out the Wagon Rod seats for the Mustang ones. Made a steering column with turn signal and tilt controls for the PE wheel.

Man this is coming out nice! l'm gonna have to get a Wagon Rod! l've been hearing for years they have nice parts.
Thanks. Your '41 Plymouth is looking good.
The Wagon Rod does come with some neat stuff, airide suspension with tubular A arms up front and a 4 link in the back, LS5 (I think ) engine, some cool looking modern seats, it's definitely a good donor kit.

.but thats more body work than i can handle!
Not from what I've seen of your work. If you have the patience and skill to do those wire wheels, you could easily tackle a job like this.
Now go cut that Woody up!

Bought the Wagon Rod while back too, nice Air Suspension and Four Links, good looking body too. But that's all, luckily I managed to sell the engine, wheels and modern interior parts. I'm building Gasser from it right now.

It took a little work, but I think I've got something decent looking. I found pics of a model of the Offy online, I hope I interpreted them correctly. I've got a few more pieces to make yet. I mated the Offy to the 94 Mustang tranny.

Now to find some stacks for the injectors.
The driveshaft has been shortened and we're getting closer to a rolling chassis.

I'd like to add an alternator but I have no idea where it would go or what would drive it, a gear or belt?
