        So I got this 1927 Dodge Brothers 4 door for 500 bucks. Jumped through the necessary hoops and now have it titled as an antique vehicle. It's in rough shape but I've seen modern dodges in worse shape. As of right now the plan is to beg, borrow and steal to keep the price as low as possible. I don't wanna say I'm building a rat rod but it's certainly not gonna be a Boyd level build either. Basic go fast toy. These pics are from when it showed up in my driveway.

          I don't know if Texas will let you re-register original plates (YOM Year Of Manufacture), but I like doing this on my old vehicles here in CA. Maybe someone in TX sells original plates too?

            I got it in the shop and was able to mock it up as much as possible. I discovered I have two different kinds of fenders right and left, so I'll be going fenderless. I'm still undetermined on the hood or partial hood or no hood.

            Plan is to run a 6.0 LS, 4l80e and rear axle from a van. The intake pictured is the plan to remove the ugly from the LS. Front axle will be a 51 ford truck axle I have laying around.

            I also grabbed some headlights off of Facebook and some model t brake lights off ebay.

            The completed rig is somewhat the direction I want to go in except with a chop. Nothing extreme, I wanna drive the damn thing.

            Other than that, it's a blank canvas and I have no real solid plans. I just want something to scare my mother and wife, piss off the neighbors and make my son think I'm the coolest. Lofty goals for sure.

              Aleady bought a 1927 Texas plate for use on this specifically. I haven't run it through the registration place yet but if the numbers aren't in use I can use it.

                I don't like the rat rod thing myself.
                I like where your going with this build.
                If you were putting in someting like a nailhead or 303 olds in it, I would vote for hoodless, but an LS I vote to hide it with a full hood

                      I vote full hood, regardless of engine. I like shit to be covered.

                      Hood = good. Fenders = bad.

                        Strange. I uploaded them same as I did on the cherokee thread and both are gone now.

                          It's not just you...


                          I've seen it in a few different places tonight.

                          Maybe mention it to Austin.
