Another one of my favorite deuce bodystyles. After being introduced to "Tinngeezer", John on the board, a deal was struck & it was off to Nebraska to meet and pick up a Vicky body.

Next up I dusted off and re-assembled my frame table. Test fit the JW Rod Garage rails & crossmember. I picked up a 327, Camaro T5, S 10 tailshaft, and 57 Ford 9".

Next, the rails need a tweak here & there, flange nuts were welded in for the body & fender mounts, and the rails were boxed.
