Love the way you are doing this. Are you running 4:11's in the Columbia?

We assembled the rear suspension over the past couple of days. The axle is a '33/34 Columbia that was built by Joe Longobardi. We just had to shorten the tube and driveshaft. The brakes are also from the Early V8 Garage, and we picked up some really nice wishbones from Baxter Ford Parts. We still need to put the spring clamps on the rear, and make some shock brackets...but had to roll it outside to see how the car looked.

Do you have any more details on the front shock brackets on the frame? What are they made from? More photos? Thanks! Beautiful!!

We made them from F1 upper mounts that were heated and bent, then we made a 1/4" plate in the shape of the lever shock to mount to the frame. It also has a doubler plate on the back side of the rail that increases the stiffness of the section some. The lower mounts are two tabs welded to the wishbone right where the forging is welded to the tube. The photo of the lower mount is old....from before we swapped out the mock-up fastener for something more original looking.

It tucks behind the axle, but still clears the fenders and most challenging the draglink.

Can't say anything more than what has already been said - can't get any more stock/traditional than this. Great job here - really nice work, well thought out - WOW!

Yes we have a 4.11 in the Columbia. I figured with the 7.00-18 tire, we would be chugging the engine with a 3.78.

Thanks! I needed that. Got the pictures filed away.

Cory,
Did you have to modify the floorpan to get clearance for the Columbia?

I'm just another fan of this project (and earlier projects). With an eye for details and stance to my taste!
Thank you for showing us!

Hi there, Well that's a nice car and the engineering put into it is outstanding. But I preferred it the way you bought it as mostly original. They are only original once and fairly rare in that condition. Now it is just another modified 32 ford hot rod of which there are plenty around. I know I am in trouble now for saying this, and its not my car, but I prefer them the way Henry built them. But its your project and I wish you good luck with it. Regards, Kevin.
