Iron Trap 1933 Ford Project: Full Chrome Front End And A Wedge Channel For The 1933 Ford 3-Window Coupe Project!

Matt at Iron Trap does some really cool stuff and is always fun to watch. His builds always make me want to build a 1930’s or 1940’s ride and this one is no different. This 1933 Ford is one that they bought as a pile of parts and along with all the other ’33 Ford parts he’s recently collected, and the stuff he’s had stacked up in the shop, he’s putting this one together. The wedge style channel job is something I dig and love the look of, and I think you will too. So check out what they have going on in this episode, where the front suspension, rear axle, and body are all getting some love.

Video Description:

Now that the sub rails on built we need to get the body back onto the frame. Before that can happen Matt needs to get the front and rear axles mounted so we can roll the car outside to look at the car from a distance. Matt has been gathering chrome bits for a full chrome front axle, which looks great lightly cleaned and assembled. One thing we discovered is the Franklin quick change is built slightly different then other quick changes and the stock style spring clears the housing. This allows us to the the existing tube crossmember. Once the chassis is rolling Matt and Steve work on placing the body onto the frame. Recently Matt was looking at old photos and decided to change up the channel to a wedge style. Let us know down below what you think of the adjusted look!!!
