1934 International

1-1/2 ton Truck - Mark Simpson Perhaps the best indication a project car has sat for too long, is the number of trees you will need to be cut down to begin working on it. Years ago, I had traveled to the northern edge of North Dakota, and just a stones throw from Canada.

Master 2-door Coach - Mark Simpson I have had this car for nearly 25-years, it started as a clean, all original car that had a prior amateur restoration done to it. The body was straight, and rust free, making it a solid foundation for building a quality street rod. I was drawn to the ’35, because it was the only year and model that Chevrolet offered suicide doors.Read More >>

Tight Fit Steering

Q: While I have owned several classic cars over the years, I am currently building my first real hot rod. The car is a glass bodied 1934 Ford Roadster with a Mustang II front suspension. I have installed a 454ci big block Chevy motor and a set of shorty block hugger headers. Needless to say,…
