Real hot rods don't have fenders!

That pink one is a 55/56. 57's have different grill and hood bumps.

I prefer the unchopped version of that truck but like the chopped F100. They look really cool with the hood sectioned (pie cut).

Have you done a top chop before? It's tough to do right if you have never done one before. I have a bunch of articles to help you out if you'd like them. My 32 has fairly straight posts so not too bad. The 34 is much harder because more curves. The trucks will be the same. You'll have to add material to the roof. It's easier to find another junker cab that you can rob a roof section from for the material.

My bud at work just sold his 57 a month ago, would have made someone a nice car to have, Won something at every Super Chevy Show it was in, Put in the Gold Class, so that shows how nice it is.

Tim,

It's a real 1932 Ford, steel body 3&1/2 inch chop. I'll post more pic later.

Will you be able to register the 57? How much is gas over there? You it be better to build the truck over here and ship it back there as a completed truck?

we cant register kit cars.
trick is we can use some other cars paper which is illegal.
but its possible to import old cars. it has to be 30 years old or older.for collection purposes only. but after they register somehow?!?.i dont know the exact procedure but i know it takes long time

a gallon gas is app $6 usd. we use liter to measure liquids. aliter is $1.50 usd

57 has plates already .dont have to do something special with the papers
