SO, tell us a little about you.

sedann - CopyI’m 36 and live in small town in Elk City Oklahoma . I do pyrography ( wood burning ) and try to save as many cars old parts as I can.My Facebook page is Forever in Wood.

I have had grand mal seizures off and on for almost 9 years now so it restricts what I can do . Luckily I have only had

Wood Burning

one in the past year, or so.

I’m no mechanic but I have loved hot rods as long as I can remember and always drove some sort of classic . My 1st car was a ’63 impala .

sedan tape - CopyI Love to make things with my hands . I can beat dents pretty well and taught myself how to weld.

Unfortunately I have never got into mechanics of the engine.

What is the vehicle that is being featured by Lean on Me this month?

1928 Ford Tudor Sedan

Where did you get this gem and for how much?

I found the 1928 Ford Tudor Sedan the in a scrap pile behind a mechanics shop about 2 miles or less away from my house, here in Elk City

Here is a link to the video of William picking up his 28.

That was almost 4 years ago.

It was missing the doors and pretty much just a shell as everything that could be stolen off of it had been over the years.

I got it for 600 dollars.

Give us a little

idea of where it is in the process right now.

At the moment I do not have a title for it. I have had this tucked under the shelf waiting to come out and be built .

I have been collecting parts here and there as I can , So far I have found the doors on eBay . along with a visor . After finding a few great videos on YouTube the tops been chopped 5 1/2 inches ( my first chop too ) the windshield frame was shot so I filled in the swiss cheese .

I have no plans to paint it, so I am leaving it natural patina .

xmembersedanI have a 307 sbc I’m using for a mock up engine. Using a Ford 9 inch I got from the salvage yard . A dropped front axle kit from Speedway with the hair pin radius rods . Triangulated 4 link for the rear axle.

I have some control arms left over from another project for the front. Using an X member for a 35 ford frame.

Over all it’s in fair condition , not rusted out beat to crap.

I found a ’30 Ford frame in the recycling place for 10 bucks . I will be using the front frame horns and cross member from the firewall up , and the rest 2×4 boxed steel .

I would like to keep it as old school as possible , using a transverse leaf spring setup in the back like the old t buckets.

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
