T coupe update for Christmas

Jim up in Minnesota sent a little update . Thanks ! Merry Christmas

I put in a 58 Olds rear, 700r4, and SBC 350.  I am in the process of channeling the body 4 inches.   I might chop it but I want to get a little further along to see how much head room it will have.  Lots of work left but going good.  Fun build..  Great Frame for the foundation!

Sack town gets a new rod/ Frames ahoy !

More wood then it can handle
The stack was added to the middle,so the pallet on the bottom would not break
lets hope it makes it thru the Las vegas hub ..
I would have built more into it,but it was cold and snowing that night.
All the extra wood should help..
