Garth Webb (Webber Chassis) has been in the area building cars for a long time. Conveniently, he’s about 100 feet away in the same industrial building. This has advantages for both of us – he gets to peruse the shelves (daily) when he needs a little bracket or some custom machining, and it’s good for us because… well, I think I already mentioned why. The latest project to squeeze through the doors is a 1957 Ford which will be getting a Welder Series Mustang II crossmember and some other frame work done. Since he’s so close, I’ll be posting some updates as the project moves along. Here are some pictures to kick off the party.
Here are some pictures of the front end install on this Ford:
We also are getting ready to start our 57 ford. I can send you photos of the frame build. Im going to fab a compleat frame with the your mustang II crossmember .. Thanks Paul Joe Souza jsroadsters.com
Hi Joe, I’d really like to see the pictures.
Thanks for your note
I’m assuming the truck is going to have the full Mustang ll steering setup?
This one is actually a car, but I think it will use Borgeson universal joints and the MII rack.
thinking of doing the kit on my 56 club sedan, very similar front suspension.. look forward to as much info as possible thanks so much Steve
Waiting on anything on this subject as I have a 57 that I am just getting started on.
I really need the plans or dimensions used to build this frame stub. I have a ’57 Ranchero that I am putting a 4.6L twin cam and trans into and it will not fit until I build a frame stub just like this one. How do I get the plans or where can I find the dimensions necessary to build this beautiful piece?
I am currently building a “jig” to hold the frame level and square, then I plan on building uprights to get the bumper bolt holes and core support cross member in the right place. Help me please!!!
Hi Dale, thanks for your note. This front clip was made by Garth at Webber Chassis. I don’t think he has any dimensions for the frame, but he did use one of our https://welderseries.ecwid.com/Mustang-II-Crossmember-Kit-for-Coil-Springs-p51209443. I’m sure he’d be willing to chat with you about your project.
How do I speak with Garth? This is exactly what I need to build for my Ranchero and having someone who has built one give me the “tips” I need to get it right the first time. The 58″ crossmember kit is what I will need once I have the dimensions necessary to put this frame stub together.
