*Yo and Howdy...
1924 Ford bone stock in barn...

*I'll get to the rant... VW beam on hot rod is a ok
1. *I have a title to 1965 VW NOT a 1928 Ford.
2. *I trust in Dr. Porsche and his torsion bar engineering
3. The beam is laying in my yard with disk brakes, wheels ect
4. Haveing wandered all over Arizona hyways with a strait axel truck.. VW offers independent suspension.
5. VW beams are sexy.. (My high school Girlfriend said so... and there's good reason buggy springs are called suicide front ends.

*Peace and LOVE
KILL a commie for mommy!

run corners against table saw at 4"

Welcome to Undead Sleds, from northern Alberta.
This project sounds interesting, partly because I also have a Model A that I need to make into a hotrod.
Carry on. Oh and can we see some pictures.
Welcome to the group from New Mexico. That’s an interesting project. As you can see from pic, I went the other way, VW body on a Chevy Luv chassis.
As mentioned pix are mandatory 🤪
