Default Project FlatRod

Been wanting to do a hot/rat rod for a long time, but still love my jeeps. So been compiling photos of what I do and dont like for a long time now. Watching for that special deal. And finally found one. So I am starting with a 1951 Willys 3a. The plan was to do the body and everything but the wife really likes the look of this one. Some farmer welded in new floors and firewall. They are ugly but solid. Plan is to have a nice interior. The body is off the frame so its getting boxed, sand blasted and painted. So heres a list.

Under slung suspension
Coil overs
33 inch tires
Ford 9" rear
custom front straight axle
5.8 liter ford
C6 2wd trans
3500 stall converter


Hoping to have something that moves by jeep blessing.
