Early Ford expert Vern Tardel offers a step-by-step guide to modifying a 1929-34 chassis to accept a Banjo quick-change rear axle while resetting the rear ride height. Several styles of chassis conversion are fully-illustrated with handy ways to do a complete, or partial rear crossmember swap out on a 1932-34 frame, or an effective Z-drop conversion on a Model A frame. The book also includes a chapter of notching a full tank and suspension modifications. 36 pages.
Note: We highly recommend purchasing this book with the companion book Banjo Axle Quick-Change Assembly Guide (BK-142).
Legendary builder and source of knowledge, Vern Tardel has been working with and building flathead powered Ford hotrods since they were the hot-ticket item instead of a nostalgic throwback to the past. His how-to books are a great source of down-to-earth knowledge supported by diagrams and photos to guide novice and professional builders alike through their hot rod building journey.
