From Daniel :

This is my 1939 Chevy 3/4-Ton that I found through Craigs list. I'm fixing up to be a real street rod cruiser. It will be driven and not trailered, as that's the way street rods were meant to be. I have worked at many body shops even studied under Barris for awhile.

I plan to use the original straight axle, instead of chopping up my frame for the much more popular IFS set up. After all, I am wanting to achieve more of an old school resto-rod.

However, I do plan to use a newer 250 inline along with a 350 Turbo, and front disc brakes. I feel this will make it more highway friendly.

Body modifications so far -- will be swapping the rear fenders for the later model 1948-53 style (if I can locate a decent set) and whatever else fits my limited budget.
