Straight 8 Rod

Recommended Posts

Here my newest project: A 1932 Ford Sedan with a Straight 8 engine

I chopped the body a few millimeters cut out the doors. The roof will be cut open later. The chassis is a modified Zed frame from The Modelfactory, a german company. Better know for there truck bodies. The engine is a Buick Straight 8 from Replicas Miniatures of Maryland. Wheels/Rims are from The Modelhaus. The bomber seats are from Ken Hamiltons Wildhare Models

Looking forward to following this build. Those bomber seats are great, might have to get some. I've seen that straight 8 in RoM's catalog and thought about how that might look in a street rod. I guess we're fixing to find out.

sharp! Can we see some close up shots of the rear suspension set up you having going?

MArk you asked for pictures of the rear axle. The rear axle is from the Revell '32 Sedan. I also lengthened the front frame rails to get more space for fan and cooler

Here some pictures of the track nose that I use. I modified the track nose from a '29 Ford Rat Rod. The Woodlite lamps are from a guy in the US.
