Continuing on with our very unusual Weekend Posts, and it seems that great minds think alike. I know what you’re thinking right now… “Well, we knew this day would come, and Jim’s lost his marbles.” Hate to tell you this, but the day I lost my “Marbles” happened many Many MANY years ago, so shut up… Anyway, while cruising the list by Craig I discovered two different Ford Shoebox listings. For those unfamiliar with the term “Shoebox”, it is a term the described the 1949 thru 1951 Ford sedans and coupes. Getting back on topic, it seems that a Chevy S-10 Blazer or Pickup frame will slide right under a Shoebox Body, and you have the makings for a Bitchin’ Ride. Make the jump to find out how…
This is a 1949 Ford Business Coupe, and according to the listing:
49 ford business coupe. good car for rat rod, will need patch panels. look at the photos. i was going to put it on a s10 frame. the s10 frame fits great. call with questions, make offer…
Asking price for this Shoebox is $800. See the listing here.
This is a 1950 Ford Business Coupe, and it really isn’t from the same seller:
Business coupe project for a custom or rat rod. Could be a parts car too as its very complete, but it would be a shame. Frame has a few rot spots, so I’d replace it. I have a 1995 2wd blazer with 4.3/700r4 I bought as a donor for this ill throw in for $650. Part/scrap the blazer till you get to the chassis, end up with a near free donor. The ford has a straight 6 flathead with 3 speed Trans, motor turns. 15″ steel wheels are worth $150 alone. Complete car, needs all lower patches, it’s a $1200 coupe. Trades? Maybe, maybe not. I have two mercurys I have to get roadworthy before I get into this, so until I start it, it’s for sale. No title. Local delivery possible within NJ.
Asking price for this Shoebox is $950. See the listing here.
About that 2WD Blazer, well, here it is:
Cleaning out the yard. I have this 1995 blazer I bought for the chassis and drivetrain, to use under my 50 ford coupe. I’m selling the coupe, so I’m hopefully selling this too. Had a fuel pump issue when I bought it, also note damage to door and fender. It’s not worth fixing, but part it out and you’ll have a great and free platform for your AD Chevy truck or kustom rat rod project. It’s a 4.3/700r4. Please no dumbass SCRAPPERS with your $200 offers. I own 3 car trailers and 2 diesel trucks, I understand how to scrap a car thanks.
This ad states that the asking price is $550, so take any of these prices with a grain of sand. This listing is here.
