A couple years ago a customer bought a ce in the midwest , very rough, on a ford ranger frame, did I mention very rough, He brought it to me and we did a deal, restoration in progress, WE found a 39 president in Seattle and purchased it for the frame,we modified the frame with a heights cross member, a arm suspension , rack and pinion, disk brakes ,all new and or rebuilt , a 9 inch ford rear end, rebuilt, disk brakes all around , built a 327 chevy and added a 4 speed muncy, frame is black(por 15). Completly repaired the front clip , all cancer cut and replaced , the bed is ready for a new bottom , the cab is about completely refabricated, I would finish it, There are new springs (Rear)A new radiator , have the stock wheels but they dont work with disk brakes.Have accumulated lots of the misc . items needed for completion ( lights ,bumpers, other misc.)
Customer remarried a person who sees no reason to do old cars ,therefor this will be going on the block and I thought I should offer it to anybody from the forum who may have an interest before I put up for the rest of the world. Thank You. Allen (e_me at oltrknut@hughes.net) if you need more info

Greetings, oltrknut,

That project has some strange kharma:) First, it came in on a Ford frame, then the customer showed very bad Studebaker judgement in his choice of spouse, then, your link to photo bucket didn't work for me.

thnx, jv

It's a terrible thing what hormones do to people! Humans do crazy things when the hormones are in control. If this guy is a true old car nut it will be a hard row to hoe. The old car addiction can not be changed by a mere woman.
My better half isn't into old cars either, but she loves me enough not to interfere. She looks at it as a "guy thing". Then she kisses me, and says to have a safe trip as I'm about to walk out the door to go pick up another "treasure". However she did laugh a bit when I came home from the last trip with a hearse. lol
