A coupe for Carolyn

CR 29 FordPosted by Don Dillard Fri, January 18, 2013 16:07:30

We’re building this 29 coupe for Jared’s mom, Carolyn. Quite a bit of work had been done on the car long ago but, none of it was finished and mush of it will have to be re-done. The chassis had 4-bars front and rear. The front axle was too wide and had 40 Ford front brakes. The rear was set up with coil over shocks and a Dana 44 rear axle. The body already had a Bitchin Products firewall installed and the top was chopped and filled. Unfortunately, the top was filled with a flat piece of sheet metal and covered with lots of body filler in a futile attempt to create the compound curve needed for the right crown.
