Henry 3 window resurrection AKA "TROUBLEMAKER"
« on: November 05, 2012, 08:01:14 AM »
One of the all time favorites. With a lot of quarterbacking from my friend Beppie, I'm putting together a late 60's early 70's vibed coupe.

I started with this heap of parts, some gennie some repop.


A roached out coupe body, minus most of it's wood and broken away at the B pillars.

And a gennie frame.

O.K. lets start with the frame build up.

Started with sandblasting.

Then tacked everything into my homemade frame table.

Added a Chassis Eng. X

Flipped the kits center mount & notched it for a T-10 4 speed.

Modified the rear plate of the kit.

Installed the rear plate and tied it into the ladder bar mounts.

Flattened a P&J front x member.


Installed a 57 Ford 9".

Made some race car inspired mounts.

Fabbed up my own rear crossmember for the Posies transverse leaf.

And there you have it, a basic Deuce Hot Rod Frame.
I'd like to thank Beppie (TS3X65MPH) for all his tips and tricks as well Jack for the crucial measurements, and scrub line specs.

Looks good,  those welder series mounts came out great, gotta love Paul's stuff. His chassis parts have been around for a long time. Always fair value too.  thanks for taking the time to share the project, looking forward to seeing this catch up to all that fine work on the sedan.

Building a custom steering wheel. I started with a 38 Ford stock wheel, I wanted a cross between an early Corvette wheel & a stock old Ford.

Scaled down & stainless spokes added.

Added some filler & scaled down the bulky center.

Painted to match the body color on the modified 38 column.

                                             ***Easy, peasy, real throttle linkage***
Since I didn't want a Lokar or similar cable stuff, going to a billet pedal. I decided to make up my own.
So starting with a 1/4" Heim end I threaded a piece of 1/4 " round stock.

Next I added a 2x4 linkage kit from Summit.

Then the tricky stuff, I welded a bushing to a 5/16 bolt to go on the original pedal mount. I made ears on the mount and attached a plate to the firewall.

I cut down another 5/16 Heim end so I didn't have too much length on the inside of the car.

Next I modified the upper pedal arm, by adding a 1/4" bolt turned down to a #10/32 to accept the Heim end & welded it up.

Added a roll pin.

And there you have it,

Real mechanical linkage using a a stock Ford pedal assemble, now off for some chrome!

I finished off the top insert this weekend and took it out for a spin to pick up my son from work.



My friend John did the seat in an old looking leather. I want the interior to look like an old 60's interior.

I still have to get the horn and front signals wired up next.

All packed up & waiting for the trailer to haul it home. We had a mini blizzard Sunday, I'm glad I only had about 15 miles of highway travel.




I actually one best engine with a SBC! Notice no crimped wire connections or cable clamps, and a real chrome Fomoco 5 blade fan!

Must be a Hot Rod, chromed pedals, Hurst shifted 4 speed, mechanical SW gauges and a Sun tach. I made my own drop & wheel.

Just an update, put a few thousand miles on the 3 window last year. Making a few minor changes this year, a taller rear end gear, polishing the alternator, a PVC valve, new tail pipes and a little more angle on the seat.

That's the plan, new tips are done (cut off the old ones & added a formed 2 1/2" bell tip)  & I cleaned up a 9" pumpkin to have some 2:73's installed. The pipes will get finished welded & some white VHT when I switch rear end cases over.
