Dick Clark's '34 (or is it a '32?) Ford Sedan

 

 

Dick Clark wanted a '32 Ford Sedan. But, there's no real good source for them anymore. So we're doing the next best thing. We got a '34 Sedan body from Redneck Street Rods and we're going to modify the front to take a '32 front end.

The body just arrived from Redneck.

While we're waiting on the custom framerails, we'll start modifying the cowl. We start by grinding the gelcoat on the cowl and sides.

Now the fiberglass is ground down.

The beltline is duplicated with fiberglass. No bondo was used for this step.

Here's the completed cowl.

The framerails are going in the jig to start the chassis buildup.

First we need to get the chassis centerline. We do this by running a string down the center of the entire length of the jig. Since these are custom rails, (34 in the back, pinched 32 in the front) we'll need to custom jig the front of the rails.

Now we'll cut the rear of the frame off and move it in.

Here's the frame all back together and welded up.

Next we install the Heidt's front crossmember and begin installing the A-arms and brakes.

The Wilwood front brakes are on.
