Am almost finished with fabrication on the coupe-pickup. Worked out the details of the bed floor, tailgate cap and fittings. Made some Caribbean style side moldings and was pleased to find that an upper windshield molding from a 53 sedan made a pair of B to C pillar beltline moldings with just 2 inches left over.

Yet another roadster idea careening through my head I am calling the Packard Land Shark. This will have an underslung chassis of, uh, striking appearance and as such will need a straight front axle.

Speedway Motors offers straight front axles in any width you specify and you may have it to take either Ford or Chevrolet spindles as you will. Fact #1:Heaven knows I am way too cheap to buy spindles and drums from another car when Packard items are already piled up in the basement. Fact #2: Chevrolets used the same diameter kingpins and had similar kingpin inclination as Packard. So with only a few keystrokes I obtained a straight axle that accepts 41-56 Packard kingpins,spindles and brakes. Oh boy. I only need to make a spacer.
