Default 1923 vw-t

look what i got friday. it's a real pos. the guy who built it couldn't weld worth a crap, the motors froze, the interior is shot and it generally is built quite poorly. it has a vw front beam on it too. which looks very bad on it. he also just cut the box in half and used aluminum to extend it instead of fiberglassing it longer. the last pic is what i want to do with it. more or less an all weather car. price was good, $800 bucks.

Just my opinion, but consider going to an old Ford solid beam axle with transverse spring and not using the VW front. It would really clean up the front end without all the VW front beams distracting the view. I like your concept for it, you plan to cut doors in?

yea 38chevy454, that is exactly what i was planning. i make my own axles. i was going to stretch the body 3" on each side in the doors also. i have a '23 t body mold so that won't be a problem. with the gas at over $4.00 here i am going to get good mileage with this. my last one weighed 1200 lbs and got about 45 mpg with a stock 1600 dp. of course the roof will be an air drag though. the other one was a roadster. i think i might consider a freeway flyer tranny too. thanks for the replies.
