AMTs 50 ford. Done. PICs.

Started on this a few days ago. Not sure how low i can get it. The front axle goes through the engine block.

The kit was made that way. I was thinking of filling in the holes and making some front lowered spindles. Not sure.

If you want to go lower perhaps a 'z' in the front rails or transplant a front suspension unit.

Will build most anything,love American cars muscle etc.Britishvehicles are a buzz too,trucks are great - want to do a jet truck,building parts up...

Body about done. Trying to decide on wheels. The back of the rims and rings need thining. May dull coat the caps.

Thanks for the opinion. I was kind of leaning that way, but was wanting more of the rim showing. I may trim down the caps a bit.

Chopped up the front end. Filled the hole in the block. Will cut the plastic axle to mount front wheels.

Nice style, and those colours really work well with the old tub. Cool!
