Well gang, thought I would put this build on the site.
It's a '36 Chevy Master that I've been contracted to build for a couple that live in Aruba.
His wife has a wedding venue business there and they are gonna use this car to pick up couples at the airport and transport them to all the places they need to go while there.
The first thing to do is, take all the old front end parts off and install a Mustang ll coil-over suspension.
The engine is a mid 80's inline six with a
Clifford intake, headers, turbo 350 and a C10 12 bolt rear end.
As we move along, I'll post what we're doing.

This will be fun to follow along. How did the owner select you? They made a wise choice by the way.
 
Nice OI.... Even nicer is your shop bro! I don't think I've ever see a shot showing that much of it.....very cool!
Thanks Couper, it's just about the right size but, a little bigger wouldn't hurt :D

cool project. I wonder if the horns will deliver the message...
Man, 6 volt horns on a 12 volt system should be loud :eek:

Thanks bob
I have a couple of friends (father and son) that ran monster trucks and were in the first 5 inducted in to the Monster Truck hall of fame, this fella was the coordinator who contracted them to do a show in Venezuela, they recommended and introduced him to me.
 
Got all the OP handy work cleaned off the frame and ready for the Mustang ll grafting to begin.
