1931 Chrysler Hot Rod...

 My 1931 Chrysler is still under construction but should be on the road by May, 2016.  It started out in life as a 1931 Chrysler CD8 Coupe.  The top was cut off before I bought the body.  I took six inches out of the middle of the body through the doors to make it look make it look more like a Ford body because the Chrysler is a huge car and a bit big for a hot rod.  It sits on a boxed Model A frame with a 4" dropped front axle and a 51 Mercury rear end.  It's powered by a 331 Cadillac motor and I chose to keep the Hydramatic transmission in for now.  I will keep posting the progress over the next few months.
