I can wait to take this girl for a ride, late 47 frame nov 47 tranny 47FL125XX
offset front end was real nice all i did was rebuild the rockers for safety even though the rockers was fine.

Thats a beauty, I envy your resolve to do such a fine restoration. Mine will be a bob-job less time and money than making it correct. Well Done !!
