Default My Dodge Bros coupe!

The saga begins! Picked my new project today... a '28 Dodge Bros coupe & my ratty build will be covered in the new magazine! Will be using a 390 out of a '63 Mercury Maurader, Merc-O-Matic tranny, severe toppin' choppin', quick change rear end, suicide front end! Gonna build a z'd frame using Don's thread as a guide & use a I-beam axle from my '41 Chev panel plus some other junk I have left over form other projects! And here's the grill shell. Wow... I can't wait! Gonna make this so Mrs Tripper can drive it too! Sorry... no A/C honey!!!

Kooool score from a buddy today... a complete front end from a '46 Ford for $200! All there from wheel to wheel, juice brakes & 5x5 lugs! Think he even has some old rims that fit too!
