Yep it's all steel 31 Ford. I'm planning on doing a 60's flake job w/ flames on it. I built this to look like a 60's style altered. I had it ready to drive and took the interior and glass out to do the paint, but got sidetracked when the wife asked if I could put and addition on the house.

The engine came out of my Blown Alky dragboat it's a 30 over 427. I took the twin turbos and fuel injection off and changed the cam and detuned it to run on pump gas, it's tied to a turbo 350 race trans with a 4500 stall converter that feeds back to a 57 Chevy rear with a 456 posi and a Magnesium center section with racing axels. I built the car from the leftovers that I had in the garage from the many race projects over the years. I just hope I finish it while I can still enjoy it.
